Danny Farquhar Rumors
We'll keep track of today's minor moves right here...
- Danny Farquhar has cleared waivers and rejoined Double-A Trenton, tweets Mike Ashmore of The Trentonian. The Yankees designated the right-hander for assignment on Friday to clear space on the 40-man roster for Chris Schwinden, who was claimed off waivers from the Indians. Farquhar, 25, made his big league debut this season and appeared in three games for the Blue Jays.
The Yankees claimed right-hander Chris Schwinden off of waivers from Cleveland, the Indians announced. The Yankees designated Danny Farquhar for assignment in a related move, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports (on Twitter).
It's been a busy month for the 25-year-old Schwinden. The Blue Jays claimed him off of waivers from the Mets on June 2nd and, in an uncannily similar corresponding move, also designated Farquhar for assignment. The Indians claimed Schwinden off of waivers from Toronto four days later and he started three games for Cleveland's top affiliate before today's claim. Schwinden has a 4.16 ERA with 6.4 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in 13 starts for three Triple-A teams this year. He also appeared in three games for the Mets.
Farquhar, also 25, has had an equally busy month. He appeared in three games for the Blue Jays this year before the Athletics claimed him on June 9th. The Yankees claimed him earlier this week, but he didn't appear in a game with the Bronx Bombers.
Farquhar, 25, was claimed off of waivers by the Athletics on June 9th after he was let go by the Blue Jays. The pitcher posted a 2.97 ERA with 9.8 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 in 20 Double-A appearances for Toronto's affiliate and pitched eight innings for the A's Triple-A squad this year.

The Athletics announced that they have claimed pitcher Danny Farquhar off of waivers from the Blue Jays. The right-hander will be optioned to Triple-A Sacramento while Andrew Carignan has been transferred to the 60-day DL.
The move marks a return to the A's organization to Farquhar, who joined Oakland in November 2010 as a part of the Rajai Davis deal. The 25-year-old was soon sent back to Toronto in April for David Purcey. Farquhar owns a 2.97 ERA with 9.8 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 in 20 Double-A appearances this year.
