From the Post:
As insurance for their uncertain outfield situation, the Yankees are close to inking Terrence Long to a minor-league contract and adding him to the 40-man roster.
The club recently designated Triple-A infielder Felix Escalona for assignment and put him on waivers, knocking him off the 40-man.
The 30-year-old Long, a lefty hitter, played with the Royals last season and was recently released by Cincinnati’s Triple-A club.
Whenever I hear Long’s name, I think of what was said about him 4 years ago:
Terrence Long’s habit of circling around flyballs before catching (or missing) them has his teammates calling him Magellan.
As a hitter, “T-Long” is in the class of a Corey Patterson or Timo Perez.
I see no way how Terrence Long can help the Yankees.
