Description: The Yankees have signed infielder Scott Sizemore to a minor league contract, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
Insight: Sizemore tore his left ACL in each of the last two seasons while with the Athletics. He can play both second and third base and could end up filling one of the voids left by Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano. He'll compete with Kelly Johnson and Brian Roberts for plaring time.

Description: Athletics infielder Scott Sizemore has re-torn his left ACL and will miss the rest of the season, according to Jane Lee of MLB.com.
Insight: Sizemore missed the entire 2012 season with the same injury. Eric Sogard will serve as the everyday second baseman for now, but the biggest news coming from this situation is that Jed Lowrie will have a guaranteed starting job at one of the infield spots even when Hiroyuki Nakajima returns from the DL.
