Steve Pearce, 1B/2B/OF
Pearce can play first, second, and both corner outfield spots. The Yankees had Pearce at one point for 12 games in 2012, so there is a history between player and team. The 2014 season was Pearce’s first season of extended playing time, and he delivered 21 home runs in 102 games for the Baltimore Orioles while slashing .293/.373/.556. Pearce filled in admirably for Chris Davis as the Orioles won the division.
The 2015 season was not as kind to Pearce. He was injured for much of the year, and struggled to get untracked. In 92 games, Pearce slashed .218/.289/.422 with 15 homers. Pearce obviously has power in bunches. Injuries and a lack of consistent playing time put him behind the eight ball for 2015. Pearce will turn 33 in mid-April next year, and can probably be had on a two-year deal with a team option for a third. If the Orioles do not attempt to re-sign Pearce, the Yankees should consider pouncing. The veteran could provide good power off the bench and a lot of versatility.
