Yanks sign Chris Young to minor-league deal

The Yankees have signed Chris Young to a minor league deal, according to reporter Jon Heyman (CBS Sports, Aug. 27).

Young hit .205 with a .283 OBP this season after signing a one-year, $7.25 million deal with the Mets in the offseason.

He will report to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The Mets designated him for assignment on August 8 and released him on August 15.

Probably the worst free agent signing this offseason by any team

I'd prefer it if they'd said 'former Arizona Diamondbacks OF Chris Young'. We don't need to be reminded of his disastrous time at the Mets.

Good luck to him! At least the Mets have one less guy whose best talent is striking out. Now if the Yankees would take back Grandy.................

And the list gets longer. i thought of this question for Mike Francessa, Have the 2 teams ever made a trade to each other at all? Winter meetings, trade deadline, anything besides the noticeable signings? Do you know what I mean?

You know that team in the Bronx. One needle in the arm from the team doctor, and he'll be hitting like Mickey Mantel in no time.

Yankees know how to nurture talent. The Mets usually give up too soon on their players.
