Hall played last season with the Houston Astros and San Francisco Giants. He had somewhat of a career revival in 2010 when he played with the Boston Red Sox, and played left field, right field, second base and third base to fill in for various injuries and holes.
He could be a good addition to an aging Yankees team. He will be able to spell Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and Robison Cano when they need days off, and as a right handed bat, can play the outfield to give Brett Gardner or Curtis Granderson a rest.
Terms of a potential deal are unknown, but should be revealed today or tomorrow if the deal works out.
