Yankees Add 3 on MiLB deals

The Yankees made a couple minor league additions recently, signing RHP Adam Miller and outfielders Cole Garner and Dewayne Wise to minor league deals, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America.

None of these players should be expected to contribute to the Bronx this season as they are more depth moves than anything else.

Miller, a former 1st round draft pick, is the most intriging of the three as he missed a significant amount of time with a finger injury. In 44 innings last season he put up poor numbers, but had a 8.0 K/9 rate so he’s a decent guy to take a chance with.

Wise, who made a spectacular 9th inning play to save a perfect game for Mark Buehrle a few years back, and Garner are likely not going to get out of Triple-A. They are backups in case they lose Chris Dickerson and Justin Maxwell, who are out of options and will likely leave the organization if they do not make the team out of spring training.
