Baltimore purchased Hall's contract from Triple-A Norfolk.

The 32-year-old Hall, who plays both infield and outfield, will be used to help out in the outfield while Lew Ford recovers from a groin injury. Hall batted .222 with a home run in seven games with the Orioles earlier this season.

THe Orioles have designated Hall for assignment.

Hall was batting .286 with one homer since joining the team on May 12. He had seven at-bats in six games. Manager Buck Showalter expressed hope that Hall would pass through waivers and accept an assignment to Norfolk.

The Yankees have agreed to a minor league contract with Hall and invited him to big league spring training. Hall announced the deal on his Twitter account Tuesday, and New York confirmed the agreement.

If Hall is added to the Yankees' 40-man roster, he would get a $600,000, one-year contract and have the chance to earn an additional $600,000 in performance bonuses. The 32-year-old played with Houston and San Francisco last season before he was designated for assignment on July 28, batting a combined .211 with 14 RBIs and two homers. He finished the season at Triple-A Fresno.
