Left-hander David Huff has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Scranton, the team announced. The Yankees claimed him off waivers last weekend before designating him for assignment to clear room on the roster for Joba Chamberlain when he was activated off the DL.
Huff, 28, allowed one run in his only inning of work for the Yankees and allowed six runs in four big league innings total this season. He owns a career 5.41 ERA (4.88 FIP) in 289.1 innings, but almost all of those have come as a starter. Huff’s days in the rotation are over and he’ll continue to work out of the bullpen for the first time in his career with the Triple-A squad.
