Socrates Brito agrees to minor league pact with New York Yankees

The 28-year-old Dominican outfielder made his debut in 2015 with the Arizona Diamonbacks in the Major Leagues

Socrates Brito and the New York Yankees They have reached a minor league agreement with an invitation to training camps according to MLB Network.

Brito has shown good defense in the outfield and occasional power this season playing in LIDOM with 3 home runs in 32 games, but is in his worst winter baseball season in batting average at .181 to date.

The outfielder has seen action in 99 major league games, most with the Arizona Diamondbacks, hitting .179 with 5 home runs, 18 RBIs and 37 hits in 207 at-bats.

His last experience in the majors was with the Toronto Blue Jays in 2019, where in 17 games he had 39 at-bats with only 3 hits, 5 runs scored, 2 RBIs and 4 walks traded with a .077 batting average. He was with the Pittsburgh Pirates on another minor league contract last season, but opted out of the deal in September following the tragic death of his brother from Covid-19.

The New York Yankees They had multiple injury problems, especially in the outfield, and Brito could be an inexpensive and reliable option to fill any casualties since the 28-year-old can play in any of the woods. Aaron Hicks, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton are all set to be the starting outfielders next season for the Yankees.

Brito comes from being the fourth in the order in the alignment of the Eastern Stars, in the match in which they defeated 2 runs by 0 at Lions of the Chosen One to qualify for the Semifinal Series and earn the right to face the Giants of the Cibao. He went 4-0 with 3 strikeouts. In the first game of the mini-playoff, he was 4-2 with a strikeout.
