Just confirmed the Jerry Crasnick report that the Yankees have agreed to terms with Mark Prior on a minor league deal.

It’s hard to expect much from Prior, but it’s easy to hope for quite a bit. Obviously there’s very little risk in a minor league deal, and even if Prior can’t help the Yankees out of spring training, there’s always the chance he could get some things straightened out with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and become a solid mid-season addition.

Given the state of the rotation, having Prior in the mix certainly can’t hurt.

UPDATE, 6:46 p.m.: Jon Heyman says Prior will get $750,000 if he’s in New York, and he could make another $750,000 in incentives.
