The Yankees designated Cody Ransom for assignment. Anthony Claggett was called up to replace him on the roster. It’s about time Ransom was taken off te team. He hit hit .190/.256/.329 in 31 games for the Yankees

 According to Tyler Kepner of the New York Times, the Yankees signed RHP Russ Ortiz to a minor league contract. This move was made to provide minor-league depth at Triple-A Scranton. Ortiz  posted a (W-L) 3-6 record and a 5.57ERA with the Astros before being released in July. It’s a shame, because this guy was once a very good pitcher.

ESPN’s Jorge Arangure Jr. stated that Cuban defectors RHP Yadel Marti, OF Yasser Gomez, and RHP Juan Yasser had been declared free agents and are free to sign with any team. The Yankees could definitely use Marti in their rotation. He is a veteran guy, who is considered major league ready and could join the Yankees rotation immediately.
