David Aardsma Clears Waivers

David Aardsma has cleared release waivers, MLBTR has learned. The right-handed reliever has generated interest from around ten teams, and hopes to decide on a new destination by the middle of next week.

Aardsma was released on Thursday by the Yankees. As MLBTR's Tim Dierkes wrote upon Aardsma's release, there should be interest in the newly-minted free agent since he showed his health and hit 94 on the gun during the spring.

Aardsma had Tommy John surgery in July 2011, so he only ended up making one big league appearance for the Yankees. For his career, the right-hander owns a 4.22 ERA with 9.1 K/9 and 5.1 BB/9.
