Yankees Claim David Huff, Designate Rondon

The Yankees announced that they have claimed David Huff off of waivers.  To make room on the roster, the club designated Francisco Rondon for assignment.

Huff, 28, has a 5.40 ERA with 5.1 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 across 52 career big league starts and six relief appearances.  Huff was designated for assignment by the Indians just two days ago in order to make room on the roster for fellow southpaw Scott Barnes.  The hurler, who was drafted 39th overall in 2006, made just three relief appearances during his short stint with Cleveland's varsity squad.

Rondon, 25, has yet to reach the major leagues.  He has been with the club's' Double-A affiliate in Trenton with less-than-stellar results, posting a 7.46 ERA with 6.9 K/9 and 6.4 BB/9 across 35 innings this season.
