    From the AP:

    Ruben Sierra agreed Tuesday to a minor league contract with the Minnesota Twins and was invited to spring training.

    Sierra, a 40-year-old switch-hitter who is usually a designated hitter, batted .229 with four home runs and 29 RBIs in 61 games with the New York Yankees last season.

    The four-time All Star, who was injured for much of last year, had filled a reserve role with the Yankees since 2003. But after the Yankees re-signed Bernie Williams and then signed Johnny Damon, there was no room for Sierra.

    I bet he shows up to Spring Training looking like Al Roker before the staple.
