New York claimed Huff three days ago after he had been designated for assignment by the Indians. The Indians had also designated Huff for assignment in late March, so Huff has now been designated three times in the past two months.
Huff has pitched one innings for the Yankees and three for the Indians this season. In 289 1/3 career innings, Huff has a 5.41 ERA, with 5.1 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9.
