The Yankees signed infielder Danny Espinosa and will have him attend spring training as a non-roster invitee to compete for the starting second base job, according to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.
Espinosa, 30, hit .173 with six home runs and 31 RBIs in 93 games with three teams last season. In his eight-year career, he has played 600 games at second base and is likely to contend with top prospect Gleyber Torres for the second base job out of spring training.
Espinosa is a lifetime .221 hitter with 98 home runs and 316 RBIs. In 2016, he hit .209 with 24 home runs and 72 RBIs with the Washington Nationals, but he bounced around with the Los Angeles Angels, Seattle Mariners and Tampa Bay Rays last season.
