New York Yankees Sign Slugging Free Agent Infielder

The New York Yankees have made a move to strengthen their roster by signing Jake Lamb, a versatile player capable of playing first base and the corner outfield positions.

Lamb, who was recently released by the Los Angeles Angels, joins the Yankees on a minor league contract.

Despite his struggles in the majors with a batting average of .216, an on-base percentage of .259, and a slugging percentage of .353 over 19 games, Lamb has shown promise during his time in Triple-A.

In 150 plate appearances, he boasted an impressive slash line of .317/.453/.498. With this signing, Lamb aims to regain his form and earn a spot back in the major leagues after a brief period in free agency.

He will begin his Yankees journey with the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre team, providing depth and potentially becoming an option for the major league roster in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

For his minor-league career, the 32-year-old holds a fantastic .308/.403/.533 triple-slash line, with 61 home runs, 290 RBIs, 14 stolen bases, and 237 runs scored across 376 games played. Photo Credit:  Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports
