Marcus Thames Contract?

The Yankees aren't quite done with their offseason retooling.
Marcus Thames agreed to a minor league contract with the New York Yankees, who also finalized a $1.1 million, one-year deal with Randy Winn.
Thames actually broke into the big leagues with the Yankees, playing seven games in 2002. He played 30 games for Texas the following season, before coming to Detroit.
Details about his new contract?

The New York Yankees have reportedly added Marcus Thames with a one-year contract worth $900,000 if he makes the team.

Marcus Thames, who turns 33 on March 6, will come in competing with Winn and Brett Gardner for playing time, according to, which first reported the signing. Thames will get $900,000 if he makes the 25-man roster, the New York Post added.

That's a fair contract. Thames spent the last six seasons with the Tigers and hit .252 with 13 homers and 36 RBI in 87 games during the 2009 campaign. Marcus Thames was selected by the Yankees in the 1996 draft and played in seven games for the Bronx Bombers during 2002.
