Report: Yankees Sign Russell Branyan

The New York Yankees have signed Russell Branyan to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training, according to Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News.

The 36-year-old Branyan is unlikely to start in New York, but he could possibly add depth to the Yankees' roster at the corner infield positions and as a DH.

Branyan spent the 2011 season split between Arizona and the L.A. Angels, batting .197 with five home runs and 14 RBIs.
