Troy Glaus Tried To Come Back To MLB W/ Yankees
When Troy Glaus heard about Alex Rodriguez's second hip surgery in the last five seasons the 36 year old reached out to the New York Yankees about a potential comeback to the majors. I think it is interesting to say that Troy Glaus, even though he retired after the 2010 season, is still one year younger then Alex Rodriguez. Glaus retired after numerous battles with shoulder and knee problems in his career but states that he is 100% now in both areas. Glaus finished his career with 320 home runs and a World Series MVP in 2002 in his 13 year career with the Angels, Cardinals, Diamondbacks, Blue Jays, and the Braves. The Yankees now have Kevin Youkilis so the signing does not seem likely but I would be pretty annoyed if Brian Cashman did not at least send him a minor league contract with an invite to Spring Training. I know he has not played in two years but this is the perfect low risk/high reward type signing that the Yankees are known for making and coming out on the right end of. Nothing wrong with depth, especially in AAA.
