NEW YORK (AP)
The Yankees have agreed to a minor league contract with utilityman Bill Hall and invited him to big league spring training.
Hall announced the deal on his Twitter account Tuesday, and New York confirmed the agreement.
If Hall is added to the Yankees' 40-man roster, he would get a $600,000, one-year contract and have the chance to earn an additional $600,000 in performance bonuses.
The 32-year-old played with Houston and San Francisco last season before he was designated for assignment on July 28, batting a combined .211 with 14 RBIs and two homers. He finished the season at Triple-A Fresno.
In 10 big league seasons with five teams, Hall is hitting .248 with 124 homers and 439 RBIs. He hit 35 homers for Milwaukee in 2006.
