According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Yankees reached a tentative agreement with first baseman Richie Sexson. The idea is that Sexson will improve the team’s performance against left-handed pitching.
There’s little risk, so you can’t blame Brian Cashman for the move. However, it should be noted that Sexson didn’t hit lefties much in 2006-07 and only faced them 70 times this year.
By the way, the Yankees aren’t interested in Barry Bonds.
