Yankees Close To Deal With Scott Sizemore

The New York Yankees and infielder Scott Sizemore are close to a deal according to Ken Davidoff on his Twitter account. The deal is a minor league deal for the 29 year old Sizemore and there is no mention on whether an invite to Spring Training was included. It is worth noting that Sizemore played 91 games at third base in 2011 and he gives the Yankees more depth in the infield, something you cannot have too much of right now.

The problem with Sizemore is getting him on the field as he has missed all but two games during the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Sizemore has had two separate tears of his ACL muscle so it makes you wonder if his range has diminished some, you would think it would have had to at this point. Not a season changing signing for the Yankees, right now anyway, but there is no such thing as a bad minor league deal.
