Yankees Lose Preston Claiborne to Miami Marlins

The New York Yankees have lost RHP reliever Preston Claiborne after he was claimed off waivers by the Miami Marlins. As you probably remember Claiborne was designated for assignment last week when the team acquired Gonzalez Germen from the New York Mets. Presumably Claiborne was designated with the hopes of clearing waivers and heading back to the club on another minor league deal but unfortunately that did not occur.

Basically New York traded Claiborne who had his struggles and injuries in New York but also shared his successes for an older and less of a sure thing in Germen. That doesn't make much sense to me but that's probably why I am a blogger and not a scout or a GM. Carry on.
