 NEW YORK (AP) -Free-agent infielders Morgan Ensberg and Chris Woodward finalized minor league contracts with the New York Yankees on Friday.
Ensberg, who will compete for time at first base, would get a $1.75 million, one-year contract if added to the 40-man roster and would have a chance to earn $2.25 million more in performance bonuses. He would get the full amount if he has 525 plate appearances.
If added to the major league roster, Woodward would get a one-year deal for $700,000 while in the majors and $120,000 while in the minors. The nine-year big league veteran could earn an additional $200,000 in performance bonuses, getting the full amount for 325 plate appearances.
New York also invited infielder Eduardo Nunez to spring training. The 19-year-old hit .238 last year at Class-A Charleston with 28 RBIs and 20 steals.
