Yаnkeeѕ аgree to deаl wіth former Gold Glove outfіelder

The New York Yankees have decided to add a bit more leather to the mix.

Bryan Hoch of MLB.com relayed on Thursday that the Yankees have signed veteran outfielder Kole Calhoun to a minor league deal. Hoch notes that Calhoun shares an agency with Yankees star Aaron Judge (PSI Sports).

Calhoun, 35, is an 11-season MLB veteran who won a Gold Glove with the Los Angeles Angels in 2015. Though he did post a 33-homer season in 2019, he does not offer much at the plate at this stage of his career and batted .196 with a horrid 67 OPS+ for the Texas Rangers last summer.

While the Yankees are 12-7 to start the new season, the team recently took a big injury hit. As a result, Judge is getting some starts in center field while Franchy Cordero — hitting just .200 this season — has often been tasked with manning right field. Calhoun may be worth a call-up at some point, if only for his defensive skills.
