Brian Cashman on the signing of Ben Francisco to a minor-league deal:
“He’s someone that’s going to compete for an extra outfield spot. That’s all. He could become a quality bench guy for us.
“I think he’s definitely worthy for competition, so that’s what we’re going to take a look at. He was having a good camp in Cleveland.
“We struck out on him as a non-roster invite this winter (and he went) to Cleveland. Since then, Cleveland signed Swish, Cleveland signed Michael Bourn. Circumstances and opportunities over there may have changed for him, and circumstances and opportunities here have opened up.”
