Yanks Sign Marcus ThamesPosted: July 22, 2011
Via YES, the Yankees have signed Marcus Thames to a minor league contract. He will first go down to Tampa to work out at the minor league complex before joining Triple-A Scranton. The Dodgers released him about a month or so ago and he was hitting .197/.243/.333. This was pretty weird because sure Andruw Jones has struggled, but Thames hasn’t even hit lefties all that well this season. I guess it’s just Brian Cashman trying to catch lightning in a bottle.
