Yankees option Matt Daley to Triple-A


The Yankees sent RHP Bryan Mitchell back to Double-A Trenton this morning, and this afternoon they announced RHP Matt Daley has been optioned to Triple-A Scranton. He remains on the 40-man roster despite being designated for assignment yesterday because the service time rules are weird. The same thing happened with IF Ramiro Pena a few years ago, so read this for a full explanation of what’s going on. Daley is not only still with the team, but he is still on the 40-man roster and can be called up easily whenever a spare bullpen arm is needed.

    So we can bring Daley up once more, and thats it? Hes outta options now, right?

    Damn optional assignment waivers complications.

    Why can’t they just make things easy? Everyone is property of the Yankees until they deem them unusable. Until then, they’re just on loan to the other teams.

    At least Ceasar Cabral won’t need to rent an apartment in Scranton on his own
