Sherman: Yankees sign Yamaico Navarro to minor league dealBy
Via Joel Sherman: The Yankees have signed infielder Yamaico Navarro to a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training. Between Navarro, Brendan Ryan, and Dean Anna, the team has added quite a bit of middle infield depth already this winter.
Navarro, 26, went 8-for-28 (.286) with the Orioles this past season and is a career .206/.258/.267 (39 wRC+) hitter in 199 big league plate appearances with the O’s, Pirates, Red Sox, and Royals. He hit .267/.354/.418 (118 wRC+) in 452 plate for Baltimore’s Triple-A affiliate in 2013 and he has plenty of experience at the three non-first base infield positions. Just another warm body for Triple-A, that’s all.
