As per Jon Heyman, the Yankees have signed outfielder Chris Young to a minor-league deal. Long regarded as a fantastic platoon player due to his strong defense all over the outfield, legitimate power/speed combination, and strong production against southpaws (116 wRC+ against LHP, including a 131 wRC+ from 2010 through 2012), Young has struggled mightily over the last two years against pitchers of all shapes and sizes. He does provide a more proven right-handed bench option for the Yankees, however, and it would not be shocking if the team caught lightning in a bottle - and, worst-case scenario, the cost is nothing more than the league-minimum salary.

It's interesting to see the slumping Brett Gardner slip in the lineup after being the team's best hitter for the better part of the season ... particularly as a certain someone continues to hold down the fort at the top of the lineup.
