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.

    Good lord…how bad was Parraz if they’re replacing him with a career .201 hitter???

  2. Dude, he had only 250+ PAs in his career or something. I would suspect that NY likes his eye or something else. Maybe he makes good Key Lime pie or something. But Parraz really was not going to be anything for this team. In my opinion, I think it is a wash.

      Well, if he does indeed make good Key Lime pie, I hope the Tigers pick him up. I want that recipe.

      • I just got word from a reliable source that he does indeed make a solid Key lime, but I heard his lemon meringue pie is better. I also heard AJ and Swish just put in an order for 37 in anticipation of the many come-back wins they’ll have this year with that massive bullpen and weak starting pitching.

    A lot of NY posts today.

  4. I would like to see the Phils make a claim here. They orignially drafted him in 2003, and he is exactly what they need right now, a right fielder who is right handed.

    Would have been nice to see what he could’ve done. Obviously he probably wouldn’t be more than a 4th or 5th OF on a good team. Yanks have so little depth (this is for you notsosuresrs) that it would’ve been a nice lr/hr deal. Jordan Parraz…this winter’s hot potato.

  6. Apparently, two other teams disregarded the same stats. He’s not that good and he does nothing to make a team better. Plus, those stats you quoted are AAA stats; I was talking about MLB stats…but I guess you just disregarded those particular stats, right?

  7. so they both suck. BFD. Next topic.
