Via Bryan Hoch, the Indians have claimed outfielder Chad Huffman off waivers. The Yankees designated Huffman for assignment just two days ago to make room on the roster for Royce Ring. The 25-year-old had a nice season in Triple-A Scranton (.339 wOBA) and a pretty awful showing with the big league team earlier in the year (.229 wOBA in 21 plate appearances), but as a defensively limited corner outfielder/first baseman, he really had no long-term chances in New York. I wish him the best in Cleveland.
