Justin Thomas elects free agencyBy
Via Matt Eddy: Left-hander Justin Thomas has elected free agency after the Yankees outrighted him to Triple-A two weeks ago. He had been designated for assignment last month to clear 40-man roster space for David Aardsma. The 28-year-old Thomas allowed three runs in three innings as a September call-up after spending most of the season in Triple-A. The Yankees originally claimed him off waivers from the Red Sox way back in May.
