Ensberg signed to Minors deal
Veteran infielder was released by Yankees this season
DENVER -- The Indians, owners of a backup third baseman they hardly ever use, added another depth option at Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.Morgan Ensberg, who has 731 games of big league experience under his belt with the Astros, Padres and Yankees, was signed to a Minor League deal and sent to the Bisons, two weeks after the Yanks designated the 32-year-old for assignment. "It's an opportunity for us to add depth to the organization," assistant general manager Chris Antonetti said. "He can play first base, he can play third base, and he's proven himself as a Major League hitter in the past. If he can regain that form, he can be a depth option for us."
