Todd Zeile signs with Expos

MONTREAL, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Three days after being designated for assignment by the New York Yankees, Todd Zeile signed Wednesday with the Montreal Expos.

The veteran corner infielder joined his 11th major league team.

Zeile could see time at first or third base and provides manager Frank Robinson with a much-needed righthanded bat.

The Yankees signed Zeile as a free agent with the intention of using him as a righthanded hitting complement to Robin Ventura at third base. Zeile also was being used at first base as a backup to Jason Giambi while Nick Johnson was sidelined with a broken hand.

But the Yankees acquired All-Star Aaron Boone and traded Ventura last month, all but ending the 38-year-old Zeile's tenure with the team.

Zeile hit just .210 with six home runs and 23 RBI in 186 at bats for the Yankees.
