Heyman: Yankees sign Thames

Jon Heyman is reporting that the Yankees have signed Marcus Thames. Nothing official, but I have to assume this is a minor league deal.

Brian Cashman has said several times that he would like to add a right-handed hitting outfielder, and this could be exactly the addition he’s been looking for. Good competition in big league camp, and more outfield depth if Jamie Hoffmann struggles.

UPDATE, 3:38 p.m.: Just confirmed with Brian Cashman that Thames has signed a minor league deal.

UPDATE, 3:58 p.m.: The Yankees just announced the Randy Winn signing. That news broke so long ago, I think I had forgotten it wasn’t official.
