Yankees To Sign Chris Young

Met mojo… Yankee mojo… we know how this turns out, right?

The Yankees have agreed to terms with outfielder Chris Young on a minor league contract, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports (on Twitter)...

after signing a one-year, $7.25MM contract… The former Diamondback batted just .205/.283/.346 in 287 plate appearances with the Mets before being designated for assignment and ultimately released earlier this month…

With Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury locked into left and center field, respectively, Young could potentially join a right field mix that includes Ichiro Suzuki, Martin Prado, Zelous Wheeler and Carlos Beltran if added to the roster.

They Gave Him A-Rod's Locker. You Won't Believe What Happened Next.

Wow, he used to be a 5 WAR ballplayer! Now he sucks.

Eh, he had two seasons like that. But he was always walking a knife edge with his offensive profile, and defense often declines early.

It's also a testament to the questions that remain about dWAR. B-R shows him going from being one of the best fielders in the game to below average basically overnight. Certainly not impossible, but probably not common, either.
