The New York Yankees announced late Monday afternoon that they signed infielder Brad Miller to a minor league deal.

Miller is a versatile player who is capable of playing all around the infield. He’s played first, second, third, shortstop, along with taking some reps in the outfield throughout his seven-year career.

Yankee fans would recognize the left-handed hitting Miller from his time with the Tampa Bay Rays where most of his damage in his career has come from. He had a career year with Tampa in 2016 where he hit .243, belting 30 home runs, 29 doubles and 81 RBI.

This year, the 29-year-old hit .250 with one home run and four RBI in 13 games with the Cleveland Indians.

Adding Miller has the potential to be a big move for the Bombers should he ever make the big league roster. A left-handed hitter with his power in Yankee Stadium could do some damage for an injury-depleted lineup the Bombers are currently putting out there on a nightly basis.

Right now the Yankees are deploying Mike Ford, Mike Tauchman, Gio Urshela and Thairo Estrada in the bottom of their lineup, and could use a veteran bat who has done damage at the major league level before.

Should Miller not make the big league club, he provides Scranton Wilkes-Barre with some depth after a good portion of their team is contributing to the big club already. And of course, if another injury should occur to the Bombers you could see Miller in the Bronx.
