The Mariners DFA’ed Tug Hulett today. Nothing remarkable about him, but the Yankees should get him into camp and give him a look.
Hulett is a left-handed infielder who has a career OBP of .394 in almost 2,000 AB’s in the minors. He is about to turn 26 and had 49 lousy AB’s in the majors last season where he hit .224/.309/.306. Still he played second, short and third and that OBP is worth a look. (He also put up a nice .380 OBP in AAA last season.) At the very least, I think he offers a more upside than Angel Berroa.
