The Yankees have designated righty Gonzalez Germen for assignment, the club announced. Recently added from the Mets in exchange for cash, his roster spot will go to the similarly-acquired Chris Martin.
Germen, 27, has thrown a combined 64 2/3 frames at the big league level for the Mets over the last two years. He owns a 4.31 ERA with 8.9 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9. He was much better at Triple-A last year, with a 1.93 ERA across 28 innings, though he allowed over five earned runs per nine the season prior with similar peripherals.
