Yankees sign veteran outfielder, but it's not Brett Gardner


Yankees sign veteran outfielder, but it's not Brett Gardner

On Saturday morning, multiple sources reported that the New York Yankees had signed veteran outfielder Jay Bruce. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic mentioned first that the contract is for the minor leagues with an invitation to Spring Training. Should he be considered for the big team roster, Bruce would receive $ 1.35 million-plus incentives.

The lanky left-handed bat and patrolman do not appear to pose a threat or impediment to Brett Gardner's aspirations to be renewed by New York, Rosenthal noted; especially considering that the value of the transfer is relatively modest compared to other salaries.

Jay Bruce was selected in the first round of the 2005 Draft by the Cincinnati Reds, a team with which he played his first 9 years in the Major Leagues and which he represented three times in the All-Star Game.

In addition to Cincinnati, the 33-year-old Bruce has played for: the New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, Cleveland Indians, and Seattle Mariners, in a total of 13 seasons in the best baseball in the world. We'll see if he can impress manager Aaron Boone and make it onto the roster heading into Opening Day on April 1.
