From the Daily News:
Luis Garcia of Mexico, a first baseman who played for two months in the Mets system last year, intends to sign a minor-league contract with the Yankees, according to a Mexican baseball official quoted on ESPNdeportes.com.
Garcia batted .219 with nine homers and 24 RBI in 41 games for Triple-A Norfolk last year and then returned to Mexico and hit .273 with five homers and 28 RBI in 38 games for Sultanes de Monterrey.
He’s 27. Bats right-handed. Has some power. Andy Phillips insurance?
He’s been around. The Red Sox, Indians, Dodgers and Mets have all taken him for a ride so far and let him go.
