Yankees sign Chad Tracy to minor league contract

Jul 9, 2010, 2:48 PM EDT

Released by the Cubs last week, Chad Tracy has signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees.
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that Tracy will head to Triple-A, where he’ll “provide protection for Alex Rodriguez and his sometimes balky hip.” Which is true, kind of, except there’s little chance of the Yankees actually giving Tracy significant playing time at third base should Rodriguez be sidelined.
Tracy had a nice three-season run for the Diamondbacks from 2005-2007, but hasn’t been healthy or effective since then, hitting just .253/.308/.394 in 629 plate appearances while missing chunks of time with various injuries.

    Do they even know what he is capapble of? I mean, all the Yankees scouts have been chasing around Cliff Lee.

    If you don’t think the Yankees don’t have a scouting report on everyone who’s been in the majors for at least a cup of coffee, I’m sure there’s a bridge in London somebody can sell you…
