Yankees add relievers Herndon and Spence

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Nov 06, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees just officially announced these moves, adding relievers David Herndon and Josh Spence off waivers. Here are the details from the team. By the way, we’ve seen the Yankees make waiver claims like this in the past. It’s not unusual to see them shuffle through a handful of relievers and backup position players, especially when the 40-man is relatively wide open as it is today.  

The New York Yankees today announced they have claimed right-handed pitcher David Herndon off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays and left-handed pitcher Josh Spence off waivers from the San Diego Padres.

Herndon, 27, has appeared in 97 career Major League games from 2010-12, all in relief with the Philadelphia Phillies, going 2-8 with one save and a 3.85 ERA (117.0IP, 50ER). He was claimed off waivers by Toronto on October 23 and designated for assignment on October 31. He appeared in five games for the Phillies in 2012 (0-1, 4.70 ERA, 7.2IP, 4ER) before suffering a flexor pronator strain in his right elbow and undergoing Tommy John surgery in June.

Originally selected by the Los Angeles Angels in the fifth round of the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, Herndon was a Rule 5 pick by the Phillies in 2009.

Spence, 24, made 11 relief appearances over two stints with San Diego in 2012, going 0-1 with a 4.35 ERA (10.1IP, 5ER, 10K). He spent the majority of the season with Triple-A Tucson, going 4-2 with a 4.20 ERA (49.1IP, 23ER) in 31 games (four starts).

A native of Victoria, Australia, Spence has appeared in 51 career Major League games, all in relief with San Diego, going 0-3 with a 3.15 ERA (40.0IP, 14ER). He was originally selected by San Diego in the ninth round of the 2010 First Year Player Draft and was designated for assignment by the Padres on November 2.

    One thing you can’t deny about Cashman, he’s a good dumpster diver, especially considering his disadvantaged position.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
