Yankees designate Cory Wade for assignment
The Yankees have designated right-handed reliever Cory Wade for assignment. They had to make a roster move to reinstate right-hander Dellin Betances from the 60-day disabled list in order to participate in the Arizona Fall League.
Wade is a terrific example of how relievers can fluctuate from year to year. The Yankees felt like they’d found an important piece when they picked him up last year, as he compiled a 2.04 ERA in 40 appearances, but that didn’t work out this year. He had a rough spring and was up and down with the big league club three times, finishing 1-1 with a 6.46 ERA in 39 appearances for New York.
