Wilkin DeLaRosa clears waivers, remains with Yanks

By

Lefty pitching “prospect” Wilkin DeLaRosa has cleared waivers according to the team, and has been outrighted to Double-A Trenton. DeLaRosa was designated for assignment on Thursday after the Yankees claimed fellow lefty Steve Garrison off waivers from the Padres.

The 25-year-old former position player has basically spun his wheels with Trenton over the last two seasons, showing little if any improvement and marginal results overall. He was added to the 40-man roster after the 2008 season because the team liked what they saw out of his left arm and didn’t want to lose him as a minor league free agent, but DeLaRosa has done little to keep that spot since. Anyway, he’s still in the organization, so no loss. Actually, it was a net gain when you consider Garrison.

    Mathematics from Mike.

    If it’s his first time being DFA’d, he has to return to the Yankees if he clears waivers… correct? And if its his second time, he is a full-blown free agent?

    I assume that is the case, because I would expect another team to kick the tires on him as a minor league FA.
