Yankees Re-Sign Slade Heathcott

Back in November the Yankees non-tendered Slade Heathcott, meaning he could be removed from the 40-man roster without passing through waivers. But while any other team could have signed Slade, Joel Sherman reports that he and the Yankees agreed on a minor league contract today. The contract includes an invitation to Spring Training.

While Heathcott missed the majority of last season due to having a pair of knee surgeries (one before the season, and another later that season), it appears he's healthy or should be healthy by the time Spring Training rolls around. I like to see him back, as when he's healthy he's hit pretty well (.268/.346/.404).
