Yankees Return Brad Meyers To Nationals

The Yankees have returned Rule 5 Draft pick Brad Meyers to the Nationals, the team announced. The 27-year-old right-hander spent the entire season on the DL after suffering a shoulder injury during an offseason workout last winter. Meyers pitched to a 3.18 ERA in 138 2/3 innings in Washington's farm system last year.

The Rule 5 Draft rules would have carried over to next season because Meyers did not spend at least 90 days on the active roster this year, meaning the Yankees would have had to keep him on their 25-man active roster or place him on waivers and offer him back to the Nationals.

    I wonder if Brad Meyers could speak better Spanish than Mayor Bloomberg.
    If so, New York should have kept him around!

      They can keep him on the 40 if he elects free agency which he probably would do.

        It was no big deal, just mentioning as recalled they had a Boston A ball pitcher from the draft and *think* he had TJ last spring.
