Here’s a somewhat surprising note from the Yankees:
Please note OF Chris Dickerson cleared waivers and was outrighted off the 40-man roster to the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre roster today. He will remain in Major League spring training camp.
Based strictly on his splits and his ability to play all three outfield positions, I would have thought some team would have jumped on Dickerson as fourth outfielder. If he’s cleared waivers, that’s a nice bit of additional outfield depth that can be assigned to the minors. That should also open a 40-man spot for Eric Chavez.
