Berroa joins the Evil Empire

Add Angel Berroa to the list of names that have moved elsewhere, as he agreed to a Minor League deal with the New York Yankees. He'll look to make the big club as a backup infielder, because I'm guessing he won't displace that Jeter guy at short...

I'm a little surprised the Dodgers didn't try to resign him. Well, maybe they did, I guess I have no idea. I can't blame them for not picking up his $5.5 million option for this year to basically be a backup. That's way too much money. But, I thought with a glove like his and some experience, they may look to retain him. Guess not.

With the signing of Mark Loretta earlier this winter, that probably meant that Berroa was never seriously considered to be brought back.
