Yankees Sign Lind to MiLB Deal

The Yankees made a minor acquisition that could end up paying huge dividends, signing infielder/outfielder Adam Lind to a minor league contract with an invite to major league spring training. Lind was among the veteran free agents who had yet to sign a contract and participating in the free agent camp in Bradenton, Florida.

Last season with the Nationals the 12-year vet slashed .303/.362/.513 in 301 at-bats. The Yankees are familiar with Lind from his time with the Blue Jays where he spent the better part of nine seasons.

The deal comes with an opt-out if Lind doesn’t make the team out of spring training.  Cashman has gone on record saying that this is an insurance move just in case there were any issues.

In an interview with MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch Cashman said, “He’ll come in and be in the mix. We’ll see what he’s got. He’ll obviously have a chance to prove that he’s got some value elsewhere, but clearly, there’s insurance in the event that injuries occur, which thankfully haven’t.”
