Yankees sign infielder Yamaico Navarro

USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees' quest to add infield depth continues with the signing of Yamaico Navarro.

Joel Sherman reports the Yankees have signed Yamaico Navarro to a minor league contract with an invite to Spring Training.

The 26-year-old Navarro spent last season with the Baltimore Orioles, hitting .286/.333/.357 in just 31 plate appearances. He also spent time down in the Orioles' farm system, hitting .267/.354/.418 in 452 Triple-A plate appearances. Navarro has been in the Majors in four separate seasons, hitting just .206/.258/.267 in 199 PA's with the Red Sox, Royals, Pirates, and the aforementioned Orioles. In his minor league career, Navarro is a career .277/.350/.434 hitter across eight seasons and 2707 PA's with the same four organizations.

Navarro is primarily a shortstop, but has seen time at second base, third, first, and in the corner outfield spots over the course of his career. You can now add Navarro's name to the list of veteran minor league infielders the Yankees have picked up following the signing of Zelous Wheeler and the trade of Dean Anna.
