In all the chaos of the Derek Jeter negotiations, one small move kind of slipped through the cracks. It’s nothing to get worked up about, but the Yankees have signed veteran Neal Cotts to a minor league deal.
As far as minor league signings go, this is a fairly big name. Cotts is a former second-round pick with nearly 300 games of big league experience. He’s 30 years old and working his way back from Tommy John and hip surgery.
Nothing flashy here, just a guy to give the team a little bit of left-handed depth alongside Wilkins Arias and Steve Garrison.
