Yankees lose Shane Lindsay on waivers


Via MLBTR, the Indians have claimed reliever Shane Lindsay off waivers from the Yanks, who designated him for assignment last week to make room on the 40-man roster for Chad Gaudin. The Yanks claimed Lindsay off waivers from the Rockies just over two weeks ago, releasing the opt-injured Chris Garcia to fit him on the roster. He never appeared in a game during his time with the organization, instead hanging out in Extended Spring Training to trying to harness the upper-90′s heat that made him Colorado’s number 23 prospect before the season.

  1. He was a jinx. Good riddance.

    What becomes of Garcia? Doesn’t he have a certain number of days in which no team claims him for him to be returned to the Yanks? Where is he in that process?

    “lose” is a strong word…
