Yankees Claim Russ Canzler

The New York Yankees announced today that they have claimed first basemen and corner outfielder  Russ Canzler off waivers from the Cleveland Indians. Russ is a right handed bat that will compete with Matt Diaz to win the right field platoon job. Russ is only 27 years old and held his own in AAA and in a short stint with the Indians so I am excited for this signing. The Yankees will have to make a 40 man roster move to make room for Russ and unfortuntely I see that move being Chris Dickerson. Check back later for updates.
