The New York Yankees signed first baseman Ji-Man Choi to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.
Choi, 25, gives the Yankees depth at first base, as they are likely to enter the 2017 season with either Greg Bird or Tyler Austin as the starter.
Choi hit .170 with five home runs and 12 RBIs in 54 games with the Los Angeles Angels in 2016. With Triple-A Salt Lake, he had a .346/.434/.527 batting line with five home runs, 31 RBIs and 17 doubles in 53 games.
The Angels designated him for assignment in December and he opted for free agency.
His representatives reportedly told the Yonhap News Agency he had offers from 10 teams, according to Hoch. If he makes the MLB roster, he will earn a base salary of $700,000, according to the agency via Hoch.
