Yankees Claim David Herndon

The Yankees claimed David Herndon off of waivers from Toronto, according to the team's website. The Blue Jays designated the right-hander for assignment one week ago after claiming him from Philadelphia on October 23rd.

The 27-year-old underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery in June, which means he won't be ready to return until midway through the 2013 season. Herndon was a key contributor for the Phillies from 2010-11, when he posted a 3.79 ERA with 5.6 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 over the course of 92 games. He appeared in five games for the Phillies this April before being placed on the disabled list.

In order for them to get to AAA, they need to clear waivers. That’s why AA claimed all of those guys, in hopes that a few would sneak through the waiver wire.

If only someone on the Jays could hit with that kind of an average.

Not all of them have been exposed to waivers (yet)…some were added to the 40 man roster. But yeah, Brummet has cleared as the others stated.

They still have to protect all these injured people (60 day guys) past the rule 5 draft. Imagine Cabral is another who will still open the season on the 60 day DL, so that makes 2.

How many open spaces does NY actually have to play musical chairs with on the 40 man roster?
