Description: The Yankees have agreed to terms on a minor league contract with outfielder Matt Diaz, a former Atlanta Brave. The deal includes a spring training invite.
Insight: Diaz hit .327/.364/.475 in 124 games in 2006, .338/.368/.497 in 135 games in 2007 and .313/.390/.488 in 125 games in 2009 but he's been a .250 hitter in his last 251 games. He has a decent shot at catching on as a fourth outfielder for the Yankees however since Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones signed elsewhere.
