Murti: Yankees release David Adams

Tweet [1]

Sweeny Murti is reporting [2] that the Yankees have released David Adams, the guy who was projected to be the Yankees Triple-A third baseman, and a guy who might have had a chance to make the big league roster had he not been bothered by a sore back.

Adams, 25, hit .306/.385/.450 in Double-A last season having finally gotten past an ankle injury that basically cost him all of last season. He wasn’t anywhere near the top of my list of players I expected to see DFA to open a 40-man spot.

UPDATE, 7:34 p.m.: The Yankees have officially announced the move as a straight release of Adams
