You would think with Gardner, Hicks, Stanton, Judge, Ellsbury, Clint Frazier, Jabari Blash, and minor leaguers like Billy McKinney that the Yanks didn’t need another OF.
Instead, the Yanks signed Shane Robinson to a minor league deal. Robinson, 33, a righty bat, has played with St. Louis (2009, 2011-2014), Minnesota (2015) and the Angels (2016-2017). He has played in 436 games with 795 plate appearances, hitting .226-6-64 with 18 SB. His 162 g. average is .226-2-24 with 7 SB, OPS+ 64.
He has played in 18 postseason games (2012/2013 Cardinals) going 5 for 24 with a HR and 4 RBI.
He also pitched a scoreless inning for the 2015 Twins.
A bit of a head-scratching move, but a move for more OF depth.
