The New York Yankees have re-signed shortstop Brendan Ryan, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. The deal is a two-year deal, worth around $5 million. The deal also includes a mutual option for 2016.
Ryan, mostly known for his defense, hit .197/.255/.273 with 4 home runs and 22 RBI. With a BABIP of .243 in 2013, there is a chance that Ryan's offense improves in the next few years. Expect him to be insurance for current shortstop Derek Jeter. If Jeter is unable to go, expect Ryan to fill in nicely. He played in 17 games with the Yankees last year.
