Free-agent infielder Morgan Ensberg has reached agreement on a one-year contract with the New York Yankees, and will join the competition for the team’s first base job in spring training.
“I’m extremely excited about it,” Ensberg said Thursday. “It’s a great team and a great lineup. Most importantly, it’s a team that’s consistently playing for a World Series. After you’ve been in the league for a few years, you really start valuing that pursuit.”
Ensberg has shown the ability to handle left-handed pitching pretty well. While Morgan has never played first in the majors, this could be bad news for Shelley Duncan.
First Jason Lane and now Morgan Ensberg. Think Andy Pettitte is feeding Cashman some information on these guys?
