The Yankees have designated infielder Brent Lillibridge for assignment, according to Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger (on Twitter). David Adams was recalled to take his roster spot, adds McCullough.
Lillibridge, 29, batted .171/.194/.200 in 37 plate appearances for the Yankees this season after going just 1-for-24 in nine games for the Cubs. He's appeared with the Red Sox, White Sox, Indians, Cubs and Yankees all since the beginning of the 2012 season, batting just .177/.224/.241 in 270 plate appearances. The former fourth-round pick has played at least 30 games at every position other than pitcher and catcher in parts of six Major League seasons.
