Jess Todd Rumors


Outrighted To Triple-A: Todd, Gibbons, Kouzmanoff,

Here's where we'll keep track of all players who get outrighted to Triple-A today...



Cardinals Claim Jess Todd

Jess Todd is heading back to St. Louis. The Cardinals claimed the right-hander off of waivers from the Yankees, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (on Twitter).

The Cardinals selected Todd in the second round of the 2007 draft and promoted him to the Major Leagues in 2009. That same year, the Cardinals sent Todd to Cleveland along with current Indians closer Chris Perez for Mark DeRosa. Earlier this season the Indians designated Todd for assignment and the Yankees claimed the 25-year-old. Soon afterward, New York needed roster space and designated Todd for assignment.

Todd has allowed 19 hits, 8 walks and 13 runs in 10 2/3 minor league innings this year, striking out 7. However, he has averaged more than one strikeout per inning in his five-year minor league career. Todd has 28 1/3 innings of big league experience and his 7.62 ERA is unimpressive despite a strong 29K/12BB ratio.



Yankees Designate Jess Todd For Assignment

The Yankees have designated right-hander Jess Todd for assignment, reports Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (via Twitter).  Todd was DFA'ed to clear room on the 40-man roster for Amaury Sanit, called up today by the Bombers.  Ramiro Pena was also sent to Triple-A to make room for Sanit on the 25-man roster.

Todd was claimed off waivers from Cleveland less than a week ago by the Yankees.  He has a 7.62 ERA in 28 1/3 career Major League innings, though a strong 9.2 K/9 rate and 2.42 K/BB ratio.  Todd was originally a second-round pick of the Cardinals in the 2008 amateur draft and joined the Indians as a player to be named later in the trade that sent Chris Perez to the Tribe and Mark DeRosa to St. Louis in 2009.



Yankees Claim Jess Todd

The Yankees claimed right-hander Jess Todd off of waivers from Cleveland, the Indians announced. The Indians had designated Todd for assignment on April 30th.

Todd, 25, arrived in Cleveland two years ago when the Indians acquired him and current closer Chris Perez for Mark DeRosa. In eight appearances at Triple-A in 2011, Todd has allowed 18 hits and 6 walks in 9 innings, striking out 6. However, he has averaged more than one strikeout per inning in his five-year minor league career. Todd has 28 1/3 innings of big league experience and his 7.62 ERA is unimpressive despite a strong 29K/12BB ratio.



Indians Designate Jess Todd For Assignment

The Indians have designated Jess Todd for assignment according to a team press release. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Alex White, who will start today.

Todd, 25, was originally acquired from the Cardinals along with Chris Perez in the Mark DeRosa trade. The right-hander has appeared in 24 games with Cleveland since the deal, pitching to a 7.43 ERA with 9.1 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9. Todd has allowed 11 runs and 18 hits in nine relief innings with the Indians' Triple-A affiliate this year, walking as many batters as he struck out (six).
