Yankees Decline Option On Andrew Brackman

The Yankees declined their 2012 option on righty Andrew Brackman, GM Brian Cashman told reporters on a conference call today.  The 6'10" 25-year-old righty is now a free agent; ESPN's Keith Law explains that Brackman's contract called for the Yankees to release him if they didn't pick up his option. 

Brackman, 25, made his Major League debut this year with three relief appearances.  The Yankees drafted him 30th overall out of North Carolina State in 2007 and signed him to a $4.45MM Major League contract.  The Yankees knew at the time that Brackman needed Tommy John surgery.  Brackman made it up to Triple-A this year, where he was shifted to the bullpen.  He posted a 6.00 ERA, 7.0 K/9, 7.0 BB/9, and 0.9 HR/9 in 96 innings.
