Rosenthal: Yankees in “serious talks” with Bill Hall

The Yankees might have found their second utility man.

According to Ken Rosenthal, the Yankees are in “serious talks” with veteran Bill Hall, a right-handed hitter with experience at second base, third base, shortstop and all three outfield positions.

Hall had a disappointing 2011, hitting just .211/.261/.314 with the Giants and Astros, but he works out in the offseason with Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long, and would presumably take a relatively small deal for a chance to prove himself again. Hall’s taken some heat in the past for disappointing seasons after signing lucrative contracts, but it’s hard to imagine him getting a significant deal coming off last season.

In the past, Hall’s shown pretty good power for such a versatile player. He would obviously be little more than a role player in the Bronx. By most accounts, he’s a tremendously good guy and a great clubhouse presence.
