The New York Yankees signed veteran infielder Russell Branyan to a minor league contract today.

The 36 year old who will be vying for a bench spot when spring training rolls around batted only .197 with 5 Home Runs and 14 RBI’s in 127 At Bats last season playing for both the Los Angeles Angels and Arizona Diamondbacks. Career wise Branyan is a .232 hitter with 194 Homers and 467 RBI’s in 14 seasons.

This may be a good pick up for the Yankees seeing that he has hit two of the longest home runs at the New Yankee Stadium. Back in 2009 he hit a home run in center field that hit the the Mohegan sun restaurant. Then, in 2010, he hit a shot into the right field upper deck off of Javier Vazquez making him the only player to accompolish these two feats in an official game.
