Clay Rapada Clears Waivers, Hits Free Agency

FRIDAY: The Yankees have announced that Rapada has cleared release waivers and is now a free agent, per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch (Twitter link).

WEDNESDAY: The Yankees have released left-hander Clay Rapada, tweets MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. The Bombers had designated the southpaw for assignment last week after signing him to a minor league deal in February.

Rapada pitched to a 2.82 ERA, 8.9 K/9, and 4.0 BB/9 in 70 games (38 1/3 innings) out of the bullpen for the Yankees in 2012. He dealt with shoulder bursitis throughout Spring Training, which limited him to just two innings of work.
