Yankees Officially Activate Outman; Designate Hill For Assignment

One day after acquiring him from the Indians for a player to be named later, the Yankees have unsurprisingly activated LHP Josh Outman onto their 25-man roster, The LoHud Yankees Blog's Chad Jennings reports.

In responses to the adding, as expected, the Yanks designated fellow lefty Rich Hill for assignment. Hill, a 34-year-old veteran who began the year at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, threw 2 1/3 shutout innings with the team this month, a line that greatly helped New York after they dealt Matt Thornton. 

Still, since Outman, a man with probably the best last name in baseball, also looked pretty good during his time with the Tribe it seems obvious that he's the better option at this point, as the specialist put together a solid 3.28 ERA before yesterday's trade.
