Yankees Sign Russell Branyan

The Yankees continue to load up on hitting prospects in the hopes of acquiring solid bats out of Spring Training. Their newest Spring invitee is Russell Branyan, who The New York Post reports has inked a minor league deal, most likely similar to that of Bill Hall.

Again, I won't go into "I don't know why they made this deal" mode, because of the low risk involved with signing a guy that probably won't make it out of Spring Training and would most likely have very limited play if he did. And Branyan can still smack a homer to all parts of the field, and a couple of those here and there can never be a bad thing. Just seems to me that with every new signing, the Yankees could be moving further away from a deal with Eric Chavez. You can find the article from The Post here.
