Yanks Get Creative With Hidalgo

Finding cheap free talent has never been a strong suit of the Yankees.  That's why I was surprised to see them in contact with Richard Hidalgo's agent.  Hidalgo will work out for New York and could get a minor league contract.  The 30 year-old outfielder was last seen in Baltimore's spring training camp.

Though he hasn't posted an OPS over .800 since 2003, Hidalgo is still a good low-risk gamble.  It's possible the time off helped him recover from last year's wrist injuries.  A healthy Hidalgo could still hit something like .260/.340/.480, good for a couple of cheap wins.  He'd also make an above average left fielder and an average right fielder.  It's worth a shot.
