The Yankees have signed left-handed hitting infielder/DH Dan Johnson to a minor league deal with an invite to Spring Training. If Johnson makes the team, he will earn $900,000.
Johnson, 33, had eight hits in just 22 at-bats in 2012 with the Chicago White Sox. He can play both corner infield positions, which could be valuable if Mark Teixeira or Kevin Youkilis need a day off.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Dan Johnson hit his first three homers of the season and Chicago added two more in the game as the White Sox routed the Cleveland Indians 9-0 on Wednesday night.
Gavin Floyd (12-11) gave up three hits over seven innings. He struck out six, one short of getting 145 strikeouts for the fifth straight season despite being on the disabled list twice this year.

There’s something strangely fitting about the fact that both Russ Canzler and Dan Johnson have found new homes in the last 24 hours. Canzler was traded yesterday from the Rays to the Indians for cash considerations, and Johnson signed a minor-league deal with the White Sox this afternoon. This is despite the fact that the Rays — those masters of market inefficiencies; those buy...
The Chicago White Sox have signed first baseman Dan Johnson to a minor league deal on Wednesday, according to the St. Petersburg Times.Johnson is best known for the three-run home run he hit on the final day of the regular season last year against the New York Yankees that led to a playoff birth for the Tampa Bay Rays.The 32-year-old hit .119 with 2 home runs and 4 RBIs in 84 at bats last season.
With Casey Kotchman and Dan Johnson now both on the free agent market, the Rays have a very glaring hole on their 40 Man Roster.
