Yanks designate David Aardsma for assignment

In not very surprising news, the Yankees designated David Aardsma for assignment.

Via Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger:

Aardsma signed as a free agent with the Yankees in February 2012, as he was making his way back from a 2011 Tommy John surgery. He appeared in one game for the Yankees last year, giving up a home run, walking one and striking out one batter in one inning of work.

    I've been saying for the past few days that I didn't think Aardsma was a keeper. Apparently neither did the Yankees.

    I would rather have Aardsma than Joba any day of the week…..

    Guarantee you that Joba will be gone before the end of the season…..

      I am always curious at this reaction to Joba, because he has actually been pretty good when he has pitched as a reliever. Admittedly, injuries have made this a smallish sample size. Is it because of the hype around him and he didn't live up to it or is more his personality? For my part, I could see before his career is over that he will have a few big seasons as a top notch reliever. Not Hall of Fame type stuff for a career, but a valuable part of a bullpen.

  3. I'm sure we can fill his role of "Generic right handed pitcher with no control" fairly easily.
