UPDATE: Yankees Close To Signing Brendan Ryan

Update 2: It turns out that Ryan and the Yankees had a contract figured out weeks ago. However, the deal was put on hold since Brendan had to have minor surgery, and they had to wait for a physical afterwards.

Update: The Yankees are close to signing Brendan Ryan to a deal for the 2014 season and maybe beyond. No word on the contract details yet but the deal is said to be "small" AAV wise as should be expected. This is purely an insurance signing for Jeter and will not prevent the Yankees from making deals to replace or backup Alex Rodriguez.

Ken Rosenthal is reporting that there is mutual interest between free agent short stop Brendan Ryan and the New York Yankees for a reunion in the 2014 season. Ryan was acquired last September as a defensive replacement for the Yankees at short and really impressed with his glove and his range. He also improved, however marginally, under Kevin Long with the bat and all this has the Yankees wanting him back as a back up insurance plan at short stop for Derek Jeter.
