This may be the best minor league deal the Yankees got so far this off season and yes, another guy they can throw in the outfield to compete for a spot! Rafael Ortega!

Inside the Pinstripes writes:

"...the Yankees have signed a handful of outfielders to minor league deals recently.

That group includes former Rangers top prospect Willie Calhoun, ex-Cub Michael Hermosillo, and Billy McKinney, who’s played for New York before. And then there’s Rafael Ortega, who signed with the Yankees on Dec. 24...

Ortega spent the 2021 and 2022 seasons in Chicago after several years as a fringe big leaguer. He enjoyed some success with the Cubs, hitting .291/.360/.463 with 11 home runs and 33 RBI in 2021 and added a .241/.331/.358 slash line, seven longballs and 35 RBI last season."

Let the competition for left field begin!
