Bill Hall Elects Free Agency

Utility player Bill Hall elected free agency upon learning that he didn't make the Yankees' Opening Day roster, Daniel Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal tweets. Hall wants a Major League job and will try to sign with another club.

The Yankees had signed Hall to a minor league deal in February. The contract would have been worth $600K plus incentives at the Major League level and it included an opt-out clause in case Hall didn't make the Opening Day roster. The 32-year-old played for the Astros and Giants in 2011, posting a .211/.261/.314 line in 199 plate appearances. He played second base and left field last year, but has MLB experience at a wide array of other positions.

he could hit 20+ HR’s playing part time in that bandbox

I’d be surprised if he could hit 20 HRs in the PCL at this point. It was funny that he thought he could make the yanks when he couldnt stick with the astros, giants, or seattle in the last few years

The Brewers bench is very thing.  I think he’d be an upgrade over Conrad or Ishikawa.

Taylor Green is better than any of these. Only thing is no need wasting his service time sitting on the bench. Just wish there was something else to plug in.

After watching him in SF last year, he should elect to take his $27M and ride off into the sunset. Tank empty.

Pretty sure he got released, according to IIATMS, LoHud, RAB and TYA.

After watching Bernier this spring I’m not entirely uncomfortable with Bernier taking Hall’s spot in the backup IF pecking order.
