Yankees Sign Gil Velazquez To A Minor League Deal
Filing this under the "nothing to see here" section of the off season is the Yankees recent signing of infielder Gil Velazquez to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training. Gil had 57 plate appearances in his age 33 season with the Miami Marlins and also has major league experience with the Angels and the Red Sox. Seems like nothing more then a depth move, maybe to replace Ramiro Pena in AAA, but there is nothing wrong with a minor league contract in my eyes.
