Yankees sign Chad Tracy

By

Via MLBTR, the Yankees have signed corner infielder Chad Tracy to a minor league deal. He’ll head to Triple-A Scranton and serve as depth. Tracy has been a below replacement level player for close to three seasons now, with his last hurrah coming in the form of a .342 wOBA in both 2006 and 2007. The lefty swinger has three year UZR‘s of -4.6 and -0.7 UZR’s at first and third, respectively.

It’s an unsurprising move given the team’s search for someone able to play third and hit for some power, but meh. At least it’s not Garrett Atkins.

    Oh.

    Anything else happening today?

    (Sorry if this is super obnoxious, I couldn’t resist.)

  2. Adam says:

    Have the Yanks made any other trade deadline moves, or is this the big one that will bring home #28?

  3. The Evil Umpire says:

    I knew the Cliff Lee trade rumors were only a smokescreen for the REAL deal of the day! Start printing those world series tickets now!

    Another slow day, huh?

  7. I can’t believe you jackasses. You’re celebrating us signing Chad Tracy?

    You’re counting your eggs before they hatch. You epitomize the worst of what Yankee fans can be right now: unbelievably greedy, never satisfied, not content to enjoy the team you have on the field this year and their chances to win.

    Sincerely,
    The Ghost of Scott Brosius

    Any reason to pick up Chad Tracy instead of Hank Blalock?
