The Yankees have signed 1B/OF Chris Parmelee to a contract.
With Greg Bird out for the year, the move seems to be a one-year deal in order to provide a backup to Mark Teixeira.
Parmelee, who turns 28 this week, is a lefty hitter who spent 2011-2014 with the Twins, and last year with the Orioles. He hit .216-4-9 in 97 AB with the Orioles last year.
His 162 g. average is .245-15-50, OPS+ 95.
