Yankees Designate Lance Pendleton For Assignment

The Yankees designated right-hander Lance Pendleton for assignment, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch (on Twitter). Though active roster spots are plentiful this time of year, the move opens up a spot on New York's 40-man roster for George Kontos, whose contract was selected from the minors.

The 27-year-old made his MLB debut in April and went on to post a 3.21 ERA with 5.1 K/9 and 6.4 BB/9 in 14 innings for the Yankees. He spent most of the season at Triple-A, where he posted a 3.10 ERA with 6.1 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in 66 2/3 innings as a starter and reliever. The Yankees selected the 6'3" Houston native in the fourth round of the 2005 draft.

    he had pretty good stats. Since the Astros selected him with the rule 5 draft. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them find a spot for him on their 40 man. Also being a Houston native.

  4. Pants Lendleton will always have a special place in my… heart

    Unless he’s injured, I don’t understand this DFA.

    I’m also surprised somebody doesn’t get added to the Disabled List to make room on the 40-man roster…
