Report: Brendan Ryan returning to Yanks
The Yankees have reportedly re-signed shortstop Brendan Ryan, guaranteeing some insurance behind Derek Jeter.
Jeter’s 2013 season was plagued by injury, so CBSSports.com‘s Jon Heyman has reported that New York re-signed Ryan — known more for his glove than his bat — to serve as a back-up.
Heyman is also reporting that the Yankees are still pursuing free agent shortstop Stephen Drew.
