The Yankees have signed Vince Faison from the Jackson Senators of the Central Baseball League. It’s an Independent League.
He’s an OF, now 24-years-old. Bats and throws left. And, he was a former 1st round selection (by San Diego) in the 1999 draft (20th overall).
From 1999 through 2003, he didn’t hit much at all in the minors – stalling out at Double-A. In January 2004, he was traded to Seattle in the Jeff Cirillo deal. Last year, he was in the Mariners chain and didn’t play much. He had a great year this season with the Jackson Senators. It’s anyone’s guess if he could ever help the Yankees.
