Yanks outright Craig Tatum to Triple-A


The Yankees have outrighted catcher Craig Tatum to Triple-A. They claimed him off waivers two days ago following Austin Romine‘s setback, but he was out of options and needed to clear waivers to go to the minors. He’s now done that, so Tatum remains in the organization but not on the 40-man roster. As I said yesterday, I had a feeling he would get through waivers this time after being claimed three other times this winter. He figures to split catching duties for the Triple-A squad with Gus Molina.

    Isn’t there a gentleman’s agreement among GMs that you don’t do precisely what the Yankees just did with Tatum? Block him from being outrighted to the minors by another team, only to do it yourself?

    You were right about the quick turn around and clear thru waiver trick.

    And for all you fans who were hoping for a reunion, Lance Pendelton has been released.
