Yankees Designate Matt Daley For Assignment

The Yankees have recalled right-hander Bryan Mitchell from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and designated fellow righty Matt Daley for assignment, the team announced via press release.

This marks the third time that the up-and-down Daley has been designated this season. The 32-year-old has appeared in a total of 14 1/3 innings with the Yankees, posting a 5.02 ERA with 10 strikeouts against six walks and one hit batter. In 100 2/3 career innings between the Rockies and Yankees, Daley has a 4.47 ERA with a very solid 98-to-36 K/BB ratio, but his average fastball velocity dipped below 86 mph in 2014.

Mitchell, a 16th-round pick in 2009, will be making his big league debut the first time he takes the hill for the Yankees. He has a 4.27 ERA overall in the minors this season, but his numbers improved after jumping from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A. In 25 frames with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Mitchell notched a 2.88 ERA with a 21-to-10 K/BB ratio in five starts.

    Yankees would have swept Detroit and their 3 so called aces if it wasn’t for this scrub.

      When the offense only scores 3 in 12 innings and your bullpen allows 1 run on 2 hits and 0 walks in 5 innings, then you hang the loss on the offense.

    Surprised it took this long to get rid of Daley.

    Wow, the Yankees actually have a prospect.

      You must not have been paying attention to baseball the last few years, I guess you missed the Yankees signing 3 first rounders last year, not to mention the massive International signings this year.

        I was just being sarcastic. The Yankees really take a lot of undue criticism in this blog for not having good young players. The back end of their bullpen (Robertson, Betances & Warren) is the strength of the team and all are home grown except for Shawn Kelley.

      Yankees prospects have actually performed pretty well this year. Better, actually, than most of the guys a couple hundred miles to the east.

        A couple of hundred miles to the east of Yankee Stadium is in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
