So the mutual interest that was being reported between the Yankees and Chris Young has turned into a one-year deal for the former Met outfielder.
WFAN’s Sweeny Murti first tweeted the news and said that Young’s last month with the Yankees made an impression on the team – Young batted .282/.354/.521 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 79 plate appearances.
He was released by the Mets in August and the Yankees signed him to a minor league deal. Young will be the Yankees’ fourth outfielder, you know, because of those other guys, Brett Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran.
Not a bad deal at all.
