Matt Diaz: Signs Minor League Deal With Yankees
Update: Diaz agreed to a minor league contract with the Yankees on Wednesday, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.

Recommendation: Diaz's 2012 season was cut short due to a thumb injury that required surgery, but the setback does not figure to affect him next season. Each of the Yankees' starting outfielders hits left-handed, and Diaz owns an .863 career OPS against southpaws, so he will have a chance to earn a reserve outfield job with the big league club during spring training.
