Yankees Make A Couple Of Minor Deals

The Yankees today made a pair of minor league deals that look to be insurance and depth moves only. Both Jack Cust and Craig Tatum signed with the Yanks to minor league deals.

Craig Tatum, a catcher from the Arizona Diamondbacks system, is out of options and will need to first pass through waivers before he can be outrighted to AAA Empire State. Tatum is 29 years old and described as a "no hit, defense first" kind of catcher and is hopefully going to be insurance for a now injured Austin Romine.

Jack Cust is 33 years old and was just recently released by the Houston Astros yesterday. Cust seems to be another insurance move just in case Ibanez shows the world that last year was not a fluke and that he is indeed 40 years old. Not to mention that Russell Branyan's back does not seem like it is getting any better either.
