ST. PETERSBURG - The Yankees are moving closer to signing Ruben Rivera to a minor league deal, with an eye on seeing if he can help them upgrade center field defensively when the rosters expand next month.

"It is something I will probably do," GM Brian Cashman said of signing the 31-year-old Rivera to a minor league contract. "I am not opposed to it. His season is over and he is free."

I'm sure that won't be a distraction. ;-7

Nice way to attract media attention and awful headlines.

This serves no purpose, I'm sure he wouldn't be any better than Bubba Crosby has been in CF (which is pretty good, he has a good arm too) and like Pogo said, it'll just be a distraction. They're gonna have to put doors on the lockers with locks now if they bring him up.

Cashman will be singing a different tune when Rivera steals his ride and goes for a joyride down the BQE! Better buy the Club.

That is great. I don't think it will have any impact but it is still kinda funny. Say what you want about Big Stein but this guy loves giving people second (or third, fouth..) chances.

You know how they haze rookies with funny costumes and all. If this guy wants to come back he should have to dress up in a orange jumpsuit for the first road trip! ;-D
