1B/OF Adam Lind, who the Yankees signed to a minor league deal last week, has two out-clauses in his contract, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
If Lind is not on the major league roster by March 22 or June 1, he can request his release.
Lind, 34, will earn a base salary of $2 million if he is on the major league roster. He hit .303/.362/.513 with 14 home runs and 59 RBI in 116 games with the Nationals last season -- his fourth team in as many years.
"The way this winter worked out, I'm just happy to have a job," Lind said last week, according to Newsday's David Lennon.
A 12-year veteran, Lind has a lifetime .272 batting average with 200 career home runs and 723 RBI with the Blue Jays, Brewers, Mariners and Nationals since debuting in 2006.
Lind has played 582 career games at first base and 249 career games in left field.
