Designated for assignment a little more than a week ago, Chris Dickerson has been released.

The left-handed outfielder might have been a big league favorite for the Yankees had he hit right handed, but with an all-lefty outfield already in place, the Yankees had no place for Dickerson. He’d already been designated for assignment once in his career, so he was placed on release waivers, not outright waivers. Basically, as soon as the Yankees chose to DFA Dickerson, they had no chance of keeping him.

A team source said that no Dickerson trade talk ever came to life. It seemed that every team knew the Yankees were going to have to release him eventually, and it’s expected that he’ll have plenty of options now that he’s on the market.
