Yankees claim Cody Eppley from Texas

ST. PETERSBURG – The Yankees have claimed right-hander Cody Eppley off waivers from the Texas Rangers, general manager Brian Cashman said on Thursday. Eppley will be assigned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

“He gets right-handers out,” Cashman said. “Obviously, we’ve had a number of things happen. (David) Phelps is obviously up here. We just traded (George) Kontos, so there’s a couple of different things there. He was on the waiver wire. He gets right-handers out extremely well.”

Eppley, 26, was a 43rd round pick by the Rangers in the 2008 First-Year Player Draft out of Virginia Commonwealth. He was the Rangers Minor League Relief Pitcher of the Year when he went 5-2 with a 2.08 ERA and 16 saves in 2008.

He was 1-1 with an 8.00 ERA in ten games for the Rangers last season and spent the rest of the time at Triple-A Round Rock. He was 4-2 with a 3.90 ERA and ten saves in 42 games. His Triple-A ERA was 0.89 as late as June 18 and was named a PCL All-Star.
