In the wake of Alex Rodriguez’s year-long ban for violating the Joint Drug Agreement becoming official, the New York Yankees signed infielder Scott Sizemore to a minor-league deal on Sunday, per Ken Davidoff of the New York Post.

Sizemore joins Kelly Johnson, Brian Roberts, and Dean Anna as infielders acquired during the offseason in an effort to replace Rodriguez and Robinson Cano in the Yankees lineup. Roberts is exclusively a second baseman, while Johnson, Anna, Sizemore and incumbent Eduardo Nunez can play both second base and third base.

Sizemore, 29, missed the entire 2012 season after tearing his left ACL, and played in just two games in 2013 before re-tearing the ligament. The three-year veteran was outrighted off the Oakland Athletics’ 40-man roster earlier this offseason.

After beginning his career with the Detroit Tigers in 2010, Sizemore was traded to the Athletics early in the 2011 season. He has a career .238/.328/.381 batting line with 14 home runs and 70 RBIs in 598 plate appearances.
