Peter Bergeron is now a six-year minor league Free Agent. The Yankees should sign him to a contract to play in Columbus with an invite to the 2006 big league Spring Training camp.
Bergeron has average range in CF and was once a prospect (albeit 5 years ago). He was rushed to the bigs by the Expos a few years back. Still, he’s presently under 30.
Maybe there’s something there that can help the Yankees in some way next year? Hey, they invited Doug Glanville down to Tampa last Spring. A Bergeron invite is not bad compared to that.
A minor league deal is no risk with the potential for some reward.
