More useless infielders!!! 

All of us fans of Robinson Cano are in for a big disappointment. According to Newsday, the Yankees are getting ready to sign Rey Sanchez as their utility infielder.
"Sanchez close to signing. The Yankees and Rey Sanchez are closing in on one-year, $600,000 contract. Sanchez, 37, who played for the Yankees in 1997, replaces Enrique Wilson as the primary utilityman. Sanchez batted .246 with two home runs and 26 RBIs in 91 games for the Devil Rays last season.

In 2003, Sanchez played for the Mets and caused controversy when he reportedly was seen getting a haircut from Armando Benitez in the clubhouse during a game."
Just what we need. :(

(Though, to give credit where credit is due, he is a great fielder - career Rate2 of 111 at SS and 106 at 2B.)

(Extra side note: Sanchez has played for 9 different teams since 1997, and had two stints at KC during that time, too.)
