SATURDAY, 7:37pm: Mark Feinsand of The New York Daily News tweets that Moeller has cleared waivers and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A.
MONDAY, 6:15pm: The Yankees have designated Chad Moeller for assignment, tweets Sweeny Murti of WFAN. Colin Curtis, who was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, will take Moeller's place on the roster.
Moeller joined the big-league club after Jorge Posada's injury, starting just four games and hitting .182/.250/.364 in 12 plate appearances. The 35-year-old backstop has been well-traveled over the past few years, spending time with the Orioles, Dodgers, Reds, Brewers, and Yanks (twice) since 2006.
Great! Apparently no one remembers what happened the last time we let a guy with the name “Benedict” roam around New York…
I have a ton of respect for Collin Curtis. He survived testicular cancer since 1999.
did anyone expect him not the clear waivers? i mean he his 33 and never really played a whole big league season thats not something you really wanna pick up off the wavier wire
