So Much For A Russ Canzler Reunion Huh?

Well apparently the New York Yankees did not have the same kind of interest in recently designated for assignment Russ Canzler. The Orioles DFA'd Canzler earlier in the week and the way this works is every team, ranked by best record to worst, gets a shot to acquire him in the American League (his home league) before the National League gets a shot. If he clears waivers then any team can acquire him if he does not accept a minor league assignment. Looks like the Yankees passed on him and the Pittsburgh Pirates jumped on the opportunity to acquire the 27 year old acquiring him in a trade today with the Baltimore Orioles.

Very, very disappointing.
