Kelly Johnson, INF/OF
Another former Yankee, Johnson has been an asset for a playoff team each of the past three years. If the Yankees want a utility player, but decide not to spend on Zobrist, Johnson is a great option. He is a better second baseman than Pearce.
With 145 home runs in 10 Major League seasons, Johnson has some pop in his bat, and is not dissimilar to Daniel Murphy. Johnson may not hit for as high an average as Murphy, but he won’t cost much more than $3 million per season. The former first round pick is one of the more underrated free agents on the market, and could be sneaky valuable to a team like the Yankees.
