David Huff has cleared waivers and accepted the Yankees' assignment to Triple-A Scranton, MLBTR's Tim Dierkes has learned. The Bombers designated Huff for assignment earlier this week to clear room on the roster for the return of Joba Chamberlain.
Huff has been moved around quite a bit in recent days as he was designated for assignment by the Indians on May 23rd and claimed by the Yankees two days later. The 28-year-old has a 5.40 ERA with 5.1 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 across 52 career big league starts and six relief appearances. Huff, who was drafted 39th overall in 2006 by the Indians, made just three relief appearances for the Tribe in 2013.
