He isn’t nearly as big a priority as Cliff Lee, Derek Jeter or Mariano Rivera. But don’t be surprised if you hear the Yankees linked to free-agent utility man Bill Hall before the off-season is over.This may be the small move Cashman was talking about earlier. If so, it's a solid depth move.
Hall works out in the off-season with Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long. The Yankees could use a veteran utility player. And Hall is on a list of free agents in whom the Yankees have interest, major-league sources say.
Hall, who turns 31 on Dec. 28, batted .247/.316/.456 for the Red Sox last season, hitting 18 home runs in 344 at-bats. He played six defensive positions – all three in the outfield and every one in the infield but first base.
Hall was especially good against right-handers in 2010, putting up a .283/.346/.495 triple slash.
