Yankees Claim Justin Thomas Off Waivers

The Yankees have claimed left-handed reliever Justin Thomas off of waivers from the Red Sox, Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger confirms (via Twitter).  The move was first reported by Maureen Mullen of CSNNE.com (via Twitter). 

Thomas, 28, was removed from Boston's 40-man roster earlier this week and has one minor league option remaining.  The reliever has a 4.14 ERA with 8.1 K/9 and 3.8 BB/9 in eight seasons as a minor leaguer.

I feel as though a “Can he pitch?” – B. Cashman reference is in order.

 LOL. Ya gotta admit, Miller so far has done better than Rich “thrill” (or is it heart attack?) Hill!

True. It’s still such a small sample size for both.

If he ends up pitching against the Sox and magically starts being able to shut down batters I’m just going to scream.
