FOX Sports is running a story that reports recently DFA’ed Mark Bellhorn will sign with the Yankees:
Mark Bellhorn, one of the heroes of the Red Sox’s 2004 postseason run, will join the rival Yankees once he clears waivers at 1 p.m. Tuesday, FOXSports.com has learned.
Bellhorn, a switch-hitter, will give the Yankees infield depth and a left-handed bat off the bench.
Why? Bellhorn’s only skill is mastering the Sonny Crockett beard. And, on the Yankees, that skill is not needed.
Yes, he can play some second and some third in a back-up capacity. But, he’s not a glove-stud. And, he’s only been a decent offensive performer twice in his life – last year and 2002.
Could it be possible that this is just playing keep-away from the A’s?
