The New York Yankees improved their outfielding group with the additions of Jacoby Ellsbury and have now made it official with Carlos Beltran.
Beltran and the Yankees were able to agree on a three year, $45 million deal that would more than likely be the last contract of his Major League career. The lineup should have Brett Gardner in left, Jacoby Ellsbury in center and Carlos Beltran in right.
Their lineup seems better than it did last year and will get an entire year with Alfonso Soriano, who had an amazing season between the Cubs and Yankees in 2013.
Now with Beltran’s deal official, they needed to designate someone to open up a spot for the newly signed lefty on the 40 man roster. That man is 23 year old Brett Marshall.
The @Yankees officially announced they have signed OF Carlos Beltran to a 3-year deal and designated RHP Brett Marshall for assignment.

Marshall finished 2013 with an ERA of 5.13 in 138 2/3 innings of work in his first year with their Triple-A affiliate.
New York Yankees fans, do you think this is a good move? Or should have the Yankees picked out somebody else to remove from their 40 man roster.
