The Yankees are bringing back a familiar face yet again.

Greg Allen has signed a minor league contract with the Yankees, according to The Post’s Jon Heyman and Joel Sherman. The contract includes an invitation to big league spring training and a $1.1 million salary if he plays in the majors.

The fast outfielder also has upward mobility clauses on May 15 and June 15, which means that if he remains in the minors and another team wants to promote him to the majors on those dates, the Yankees must either bring him up or trade him to that team.

The 30-year-old switch hitter appeared in 22 games for the Yankees last season and 15 more in 2021, providing a spark as the team dealt with a COVID-19 epidemic.

Allen has played all three outfield positions for the Yankees, giving them greater versatility at the position.

They will enter spring training with Juan Soto, Aaron Judge, and Alex Verdugo in the starting outfield, along with Trent Grisham, utilityman Oswaldo Cabrera, and rookie Everson Pereira on the 40-man roster.
