Julio Zuleta...

To fill the Yanks righty 1b need?

Zuleta, who will be 31 next year, is a free agent who played for the Softbank Hawks of the Nippon Professional Baseball league this year. He plays 1b and has a potent bat. In his last 3 full seasons there, he averaged 41 HR a year (despite never playing more than 131 games). His career line: .291/.378/.568. He strikes out a ton though, averaging 138 a year. He has some ML experience, having played 79 games for the Cubs back in 2000 and '01. His line: .247/.309/.466.
