Royals signed OF Greg Golson to a minor league contract.

Released by the Yankees last week, Golson latches on with an organization where he might have a shot to crack the opening day roster. The 26-year-old outfielder is a burner, but will have to prove he can contribute with more than his speed. A former first-round pick of the Phillies in 2004, Golson has plenty of tools, but he fans almost as often as he gets on base.

Yankees released OF Greg Golson.

Golson appeared in a handful of games with the Yankees this season, but spent the majority of the year with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, batting .263/.330/.385 with eight home runs, 33 RBI, 15 stolen bases and a .716 OPS over 429 plate appearances. The 26-year-old outfielder shouldn't have a problem finding a new home.

He'll replace Alex Rodriguez on the active roster. Golson, 25, was batting .295/.350/.432 with five homers, 25 RBI and six stolen bases over 61 games at the Triple-A level this season. He's unlikely to see much playing time.

Greg Golson (head) is expected to return to workouts on Tuesday.

Greg Golson was hit in the head by A.J. Burnett during a batting practice session on Sunday morning.

Golson was taken off the field in a cart, but fortunately everything checked out OK. "He [Golson] probably won’t play [today]," said Girardi. "But he is OK." As easy as it would be to blame this incident on the erratic Burnett, the Yankees feel the glare made the ball impossible for Golson to pick up. According to Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Yankees plan to stop hitting on the back field of their spring training facility.
