Reports all over the net (I think Heyman was first) that the Yankees have signed Marcus Thames to a minor league deal. It’s exactly the move they needed after signing Randy Winn and gives them the perfect outfielder to deploy against lefties. For his career, Thames has hit .256/.329/.516 against LHP. Now we can enjoy a nice old battle for playing time in camp this March.
Bringing Thames back also means the Yankees have three former players coming back this year. Not that it’s important, but I figured it was worth mentioning.
