Yankees interest in Bill Hall?
By Andrew Marchand
The Yankees are talking to Bill Hall about a minor league contract, according to Ken Rosenthal.
Hall is apparently buddies with CC Sabathia and works out with hitting coach Kevin Long in the offseason. In 10 seasons, Hall is a career .248 hitter.
He seems like a guy the Yanks will take a flier on and see if a position opens up for him. If Eric Chavez is not re-signed, that could be up a spot for Hall. However, you slice it, Hall, 32, is going to have to earn his way on to the club during spring training as a possible reserve infielder and outfielder.
