Yankees Continue Signing Minor League Depth

Hat tip to Matt Eddy of Baseball America for the latest in all things Yankees prospects. The New York Yankees signed four minor league players this week as the club continues to add a bit of depth to the organization.

The first signing was the signing of catching prospect Sebastian Valle, a one-time top prospect at the position. The second was a veteran bullpen signing with former Minnesota Twins closer Vinnie Pestano joining the organization and likely Scranton/Wilkes Barre. The third signing was LHP Richard Bleir who is best known for his control. The fourth and final signing was CF and former New York Mets product Cesar Puello. If the name Cesar Puello sounds familiar there is probably a good reason for it, Puello was one of those suspended in the Biogenesis scandal. Puello is the only player to not yet make it to the Major Leagues that was suspended in the fallout.
