Yankees sign John Rodriguez

According to Joel Sherman, the Yankees have signed outfielder John Rodriguez to a minor-league contract. If he makes the major league roster, he will earn $450,000 plus plate appearance-based incentives.

Rodriguez, who will turn 31 on Inauguration Day, last played in 2006 for the Cardinals. In 332 career at-bats, Rodriguez has seven home runs and 32 RBI, while hitting .298/.378/.434. The Yankees actually signed him as an amateur free agent back in 1996.

Sherman suggests that he'll add outfield depth especially if the Yankees trade Xavier Nady or Nick Swisher.
