From beat writer Bryan Hoch of MLB.com comes word that the Yankees have inked infielder Brendan Harris to a minor league contract. He has been sent to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he will function as organizational depth for the Yanks.
Harris was designated for assignment by the Angels last Saturday then elected to test the free agent waters after passing through waivers without a claim.
The 32-year-old former fifth-round pick of the Cubs was batting .206/.252/.355 with four home runs and nine RBI in 44 games this season for Anaheim. He is a .256/.314/.381 career hitter in the major leagues.
