The Yankees most productive Triple-A hitter has moved on to Baltimore.

First baseman Steve Pearce had a June 1 out in his contract, one that let him leave the Yankees if another team was willing to add him to its 25-man roster. The Orioles wanted him, so they got him. According to Brian Cashman, Pearce’s contract was technically assigned to the Orioles big league roster. It’s not really waiver claim, and not really a trade because the Yankees didn’t get anything in return. He was allowed to leave, so he did.

Pearce was hitting .321/.422/.574 while playing primarily first base, plus a little bit of third base and the outfield.
