Last week I heard about the New York Yankees’ interest in Bill Hall for their utility role and discussed it here. It turns out that the interest turned into action because the two have agreed to a deal. Bill Hall will likely handle backup duties in the infield (I’m guessing 3B, 2B and SS in that order of frequency) and some in the outfield as well. This is obviously not a move to be overly excited about, but it could be a solid one for the bench. Bill Hall is still relatively young at 32 years old and he’s got plenty of versatility. I know a lot of fans were hoping for the New York Yankees to sign Eric Chavez and this Bill Hall deal does not necessarily preclude them from adding him or a different left-handed bat according to Jon Heyman.
