The Yanks have completed another mini-signing
, this time for 3rd baseman Morgan Ensberg
. I refer to it as a "mini" signing because it is just a 1-year minor league deal (he'll come to Spring Training to "audition" for a roster spot) and with A-Rod at 3rd base he obviously wouldn't be getting much starting time over in that corner. In fact, he would most likely spend most of his limited playing time as part of the platoonity over at 1st base. It's not a bad deal for the Yanks (although at this point I'm unsure about how much they're paying the fellow) - he doesn't have a strong average (.265 lifetime) or OBP (.366 lifetime), but he's got at least a little bit of pop and he seems like a nice enough dude. I suppose we'll see how things turn out!
