Yankees Designate Josh Spence For Assignment

The Yankees announced that they designated left-hander Josh Spence for assignment. The move creates 40-man roster space for recently-signed infielder Kevin Youkilis.

The Yankees acquired Spence last month when they claimed him off of waivers from the Padres. The 24-year-old appeared in 11 games for San Diego this past season, posting a 4.35 ERA with 8.7 K/9 and 4.4 BB/9 in 10 1/3 innings. In 40 career innings at the MLB level, Spence has a 3.15 ERA with 9.2 K/9 and 5.4 BB/9. The Padres originally selected him in the ninth round of the 2010 draft.
