Good signing by the Yankees, not much downside here. It'll let them push Montero towards his natural DH slot sooner than later.

And as for the Dodgers...

The AP reports that Dioner Navarro just signed a 1 yr, $1 million deal with the Dodgers.

So now they have Barajas and Navarro instead of Martin.

Cervelli backs up and Posada DHs.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that a physical exam with the Yankees revealed that Russell Martin needs knee surgery.

The good news is that the procedure is considered relatively minor -- they wouldn't have went ahead with the signing if it was deemed serious -- and he is expected to be ready for spring training. Still, this is troubling for someone who is coming off a fractured hip and two mediocre seasons at the plate.

I guess this is the final confirmation that he'll never steal 20 bases again. Or 10.

Or 6.
