Not to burst the bubble of any Johnny Damon fans, but Damon wasn’t one of the two signees. Today, the Yankees inked 35-year old free agent Randy Winn to a 1yr/1.1 mil dollar contract. Winn can earn up to 900k in incentives based on plate appearances and offensive bonuses. The switch-hitting Winn hit .262 last year for the San Francisco Giants. More troubling, Winn hit .158 in 120 at bats against left handed pitching last year. This stat is a little alarming, given incumbent Left Field starter Brett Gardner has a career .241 clip against lefties. Winn figures to play the majority of his innings in left field, but has the ability to play all three outfield positions. Winn rates as a plus defender at the corner outfield positions…

The Yankees also signed Marcus Thames to a non-guranteed roster invite. Last season, the 33-year old Thames hit .252 with 13 HRs in 294 plate appearances for the Tigers. The right handed Thames provides a cheap, outfield power option for the Yankees if he makes the team out of Spring Training. If signed, Thames will make 900k.
