This is a minor league deal, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. He’ll likely be invited to spring training with a good chance at winning a bench job.
Hall, 32, has experience at all three outfield positions and all infield positions save first base. He had a .261 OBP and a .575 OPS last season, but he has a career .307 OBP and .743 OPS. Hall’s career year came in 2006 when he had a .899 OPS and 35 home runs.
Because it’s a minor league deal, this probably won’t stop the Yankees from signing a DH, but it could be a sign that Eric Chavez is out of the picture as Hall could easily play third base.
