Russ Canzler designated for assignment

Russ Canzler, we hardly knew ye.

Canzler was designated for assignment by the Yankees to make room for Travis Hafner. Canzler, who was designated for assignment by the Indians was also designated for assignment by the Blue Jays which came after the Indians designated him for assignment. (I know, I’m dizzy too.) And all of these DFA happened since the 2012 season ended. Is this sounding familiar? It’s very Eli Whiteside who was also desginated for assignment by the Yankees earlier this offseason.

26-year-old Canzler hit .269/.299/.498 in 97 plate appearances in 2012 and was claimed by the Yankees originally in early January.

    So it looks like they are t-ing up Nunez to be the righty dh/backup infielder.
