Yankees outright Brent Lillibridge to Triple-A

By

The Yankees have outrighted utility man Brent Lillibridge to Triple-A Scranton. He cleared waivers and accepted the assignment, so he’ll remain in the organization as a non-40-man roster player rather than become a free agent. Lillibridge had a few big hits during his short time with the Yankees, but otherwise he’s not much more than the 25th man on the roster despite being able to play all over the field. It’s nice that he’s sticking around in Triple-A just in case there’s another roster need at some point.

    Whew, crisis averted.

    I actually saw somebody say that the Yankees didnt need Arod because Lillibridge was hitting so well.

    Well, he did win two games in Texas with hits. I’m fond of him as I saw lots of his college games at U of Washington, but yeah, hard to argue with his MLB average. Still, how many other current guys can play seven positions (all IF and OF) and play them all well at the MLB level? Maybe nobody.

      Every position except ‘at bat’ apparently.

    Who was called up?
