The New York Yankees have signed outfielder Kosuke Fukudome to a minor league contract, a month after he was cut by the Chicago White Sox.
The Yankees announced the deal Friday and sent him to Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes-Barre.
The 35-year-old Fukudome hit .171 with four RBIs in 41 at-bats for the White Sox. The former Japanese star began his major league career in 2008 with the Chicago Cubs. He also has played for Cleveland.
