Yankees Sign Randy Winn

The Yankees officially signed outfielder Randy Winn to a one-year, $1.1MM deal today.  He can earn another $900K in incentivesJoel Sherman of the New York Post first reported the agreement on January 27th, with SI's Jon Heyman tweeting the contract value.  The Winn signing definitively closed the door on Johnny Damon, tweets Sherman.

Winn, 35, slipped to .262/.318/.353 in 597 plate appearances for the Giants last year (including a brutal 125 PAs against lefties).  His corner outfield defense still rates well; that was probably the draw for Yankees GM Brian Cashman.
