Brian Heyman here for Chad today. The Yankees will give a couple of veterans a chance to make the team out of spring training. They will bring in Russell Branyan and Bill Hall on minor-league deals.

Branyan is 36, a lefty bat. The corner infielder/DH hit .197 in 68 games with the D-backs and Angels last season. But he has a good track record of power hitting in the Bronx.

Hall is 32, could be a utilityman. He hit .211 for the Astros and Giants last season.
