The Yankees agreed Wednesday to sign Russell Branyan to a minor-league deal with an invitation to major league spring training.Coming off a 2011 that saw him hit .197 with five homers and 14 RBIs I would have rather they signed Chavez. Oh well, maybe he can do more of this:
The move does not impact the team’s chances of adding another lefty bat and it remains in the hunt for Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui and Raul Ibanez.
But Branyan’s presence could make things more difficult for Eric Chavez because the 36-year-old can play both corner infield positions.
