The injury-depleted New York Yankees have signed 1B/LF/DH Logan Morrison to a minor league deal.

Morrison had a terrible 2018, hitting .186/.276/.368 with 15 home runs, a .644 OPS and -0.7 fWAR through 359 plate appearances. To top it all off his season ended early thanks to a left hip impingement, for which he had to undergo season-ending surgery. He did have a nice season with Tampa Bay in 2017, though, hitting 38 homers. Given that they’ve lost Greg Bird for an extended period it costs nothing and could be worth something to see if he has anything left.

As Morrison had no spring training he’ll be off to Tampa for a good while before reporting to Scranton, after which the Yankees will see if he fills any holes. If he does, he’ll make a prorated $1 million in the bigs.
