Yankees finalize deal with Sexson

The Yankees have agreed to a deal with free-agent first baseman Richie Sexson. But the official announcement will not come until tomorrow when they make a roster move. As a result, Brian Cashman is not yet commenting.

But via several sources we can tell you that it’s a done deal.

In other news: Johnny Damon didn’t swing a bat today. But he did swing a broomstick down in Tampa and felt fine, so that’s two consecutive “good days” for him. The plan is to swing at balls off a tee tomorrow. … Brian Bruney will start the second game of a doubleheader for Scranton tonight and is scheduled for two innings. He is getting very close to a return.

Meanwhile, in the interest of sanity, I’m taking the rest of the day off. I’m sure Chad Jennings will have all the Brian Bruney news you could possibly want later on tonight.
