Yankees Designate David Huff For Assignment

The Yankees announced that they've designated left-hander David Huff for assignment in order to clear a 40-man roster spot for Masahiro Tanaka.

The 29-year-old Huff posted a 4.67 ERA with a 26-to-8 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings for the Yankees in 2013 after being selected off waivers from the Indians. The former supplemental-round pick was taken 39th overall in 2006 but has a career 5.32 ERA in 323 innings between Cleveland and New York. Huff's struggles have primarily come against fellow left-handers, as lefties have clubbed him to the tune of a .311/.381/.519 triple-slash line in his career.
