BY foxsports • January 11, 2012

A Mattingly will be back in uniform in the New York Yankees' organization this year - Preston.

The 24-year-old son of the former Yankees star and current Los Angeles Dodgers manager agreed Wednesday to a minor league contract with New York.

He hit .232 with five doubles, five home and 19 RBIs in 53 games last year with Class A Great Lakes and Rancho Cucamonga.

He was drafted by the Dodgers in 2006, then traded to Cleveland in September 2010. He was released by the Indians the following April and then signed with the Dodgers. He became a six-year minor league free agent after the season.
