Yankees Sign Spencer Mahoney to MiLB Deal

The New York Yankees have made a relatively minor signing this week, a depth signing if you will, when they added outfielder Spencer Mahoney to the organization. Mahoney played most recently in the Independent American Association. Mahoney is 22-years old.

Mahoney is listed as an outfielder according to and their transactions page but the 22-year old has seen time at third base, shortstop, first base and the outfield with the RailCats. This came after Mahoney graduated from Valparaiso University and went undrafted in the MLB Draft.

At Valparaiso Mahoney hit .295 with 38 doubles, six triples, four home runs and 83 RBI in 193 games played. Mahoney showed a good batters eye there walking 138 times while only striking out 131 times.

Mahoney is likely an organization prospect at this point but we have seen many of these signings work out across the league. No such thing as a bad minor league deal.
