Longtime Atlanta Braves left fielder Matt Diaz has signed with the New York Yankees.

According to the Twitter feed of (now) former Atlanta Braves outfielder Matt Diaz, he has signed a contract with the Yankees:

The deal is a minor league deal with an invite to spring training. Diaz could earn $1.2 million if he makes the club out of spring training.

While Diaz wasn't the most consistent hitter, he was an interesting player to watch, though I wouldn't recommend watching him if you wanted to learn a good batting stance. At times he seemed to defy logic with his unorthodox hitting style.
