Yankees Designate Brett Marshall For Assignment

The Yankees announced that they have designated Brett Marshall for assignment.  The move will make room for the newly-signed Carlos Beltran on the 40-man roster.

Marshall made three big league relief appearances in the bigs last season but spent the lion's share of the year in Triple-A where he posted a 5.13 ERA with 7.8 K/9 and 4.4 BB/9 in 25 starts.  Baseball America ranked Marshall as the No. 6 prospect in the Yankees' system after the 2012 season and noted that he boasted the best changeup of any pitcher in the bunch.  Unfortunately for the Yanks and Marshall, the right-hander didn't shine in his first season at the Triple-A level.

Vernon Wells will see at least another day in pinstripes!

That and another Yankee prospect bites the dust. :/ Someone in talent evaluation/development needs to be on the hot seat.

He was never a top prospect. It’s not like a great development will turn him into Kershaw.

Has anybody heard who the Yankees are going to name as Mike Harkey’s replacement?

Lots of people are saying Gary Tuck is the favorite. Not sure if it’s been made official yet, but pretty sure that’s the way everyone in the organization is leaning.

He was far too young for the 2014 Yankees.

Best to dfa him now, so he’s less likely to be picked up after a poor year.

Probably an ideal time to dfa him, now that most teams 40 are filled. With 43 men on their active roster they can’t be too patient.

Yeah that is real smart. Lets DFA a player that still has options left. The way The Cashman is filling out his 40m roster now might run him into troubleif he keeps it up. If he has a full 40m roster, at least 15 of those players have to be able to be optioned if he wants to keep them. Already he has packed that roster full of guys who can’t be sent down due to service time or lack of options.

Huff and wells are probably next they needed 3 spots. They didn’t have any bubble players without options left..

Roughly count 19 players still that can be sent down. You also have the dl, so if anyone goes down you can use one of the players with options.
