Yankees Designate Jordan Parraz For Assignment

The Yankees announced that they designated outfielder Jordan Parraz for assignment. They acquired Justin Maxwell from the Nationals in a related move, and needed to create 40-man roster space for Maxwell.

It's been a transaction-filled winter for Parraz. The Yankees claimed him off of waivers from the Red Sox, who had claimed him from the Royals earlier in the offseason. The 26-year-old spent last year at Triple-A Omaha, where he posted a .266/.350/.410 line with 39 extra base hits while playing right field. He has an .814 OPS in parts of seven minor league seasons, but has yet to reach the majors.
