Yankees | Close to deal with Kelly Johnson

The New York Yankees are close to signing free-agent 2B Kelly Johnson (Rays) to a one-year deal worth close to $3 million.

Fantasy Tip: The team plans to use him in a utility role and as insurance in case they can't re-sign 2B Robinson Cano. This deal wouldn't eliminate them from bringing Cano back.
