The Yankees may not have yet picked a successor for departing manager Joe Torre, but they have made some minor announcements in the past few days, signing two stars from this season’s Israel Baseball league to minor-league contracts.

The Yankees organization picked up Jason Rees, an outfielder with the Bet Shemesh Blue Sox who hit .362 and led the league in home runs and runs batted in, and Eladio Rodriguez, starting catcher for the Modi’in Miracle who was the co-winner of the Hank Greenberg Most Valuable Player Award. Neither player is Jewish.
