Default Yankees add infielder Sanchez to mix

NEW YORK -- The Yankees continued to put the final pieces to the 2005 puzzle in place, signing infielder Rey Sanchez to a one-year contract.
The Associated Press reported on Sunday that the deal is worth $600,000 and is subject to the 14-year veteran passing a physical as well as the finalization of contract language.

Sanchez spent 2004 with the Devil Rays, batting .246 with two home runs and 26 RBIs in 91 games. Sanchez, 37, has a .271 career average with 15 homers and 387 RBIs in 1,467 games with the Cubs, Yankees, Giants, Royals, Braves, Red Sox, Mets, Mariners and Devil Rays.

Sanchez's first stint with the Yankees came in 1997, when New York dealt a minor leaguer to the Cubs for the infielder. Sanchez hit .312 with one homer and 15 RBIs in 38 games for the Yankees that season, but he went on to sign with San Francisco as a free agent.

Last season, Sanchez played 87 games at shortstop and four games at second base. In his career, he has played 974 games at shortstop, 471 at second and 18 at third base.

Sanchez replaces Enrique Wilson as the team's backup infielder, a role Wilson held since he was acquired by New York during the 2001 season.
