Yankees Designate Matt Daley For Assignment

The Yankees have designated right-hander Matt Daley, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (on Twitter). In related moves, New York activated Mark Teixeira, recalled right-handers Preston Claiborne and Bryan Mitchell, placed right-hander Ivan Nova on the 15-day disabled list with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, and sent infielder Scott Sizemore to Triple-A.

Daley, 31, pitched for the Bombers yesterday and allowed six runs (four earned) as a part of their 16-1 blowout loss to Tampa Bay. Daley has spent the bulk of his career at the Triple-A level, pitching to a 3.90 ERA with 11.1 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 in 124 career appearances. For his big league career, Daley has a 4.72 ERA with 9.0 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 across 100 outings.

    I hope Nova doesn’t need TJ surgery.

      It’s looking likely. He has a torn ucl, so maybe they can rehab it, but is a likely tj surgery.

    Seems awfully likely that the yanks empty the cupboard bare for Samardzija now (Sanchez & a pitcher?)

      They dont need to trade for anyone. They have depth in Nuno(who pitched great today), Phelps, and Warren. The Yankees would never trade Sanchez for Shark…

    The reason they designated him was cause Aceves has been activated to Scranton
