Chase Wright was designated for assignment by the Yankees in order to make room for Andy Pettitte.
The soon-to-be 26-year-old has spent part of the past two seasons in Trenton, going a combined 13-4 over the course of 26 starts.
He also made three appearances for the Yankees in 2007, including a rather infamous appearance at Fenway Park against Daisuke Matsuzaka, in which he allowed four consecutive home runs on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball.
With the much discussed glut of pitching the Yankees possess, Wright can only hope to be claimed by another organization or be involved in a trade.
A consistent southpaw without overpowering stuff, I still believe he can be a viable big league option for someone as a fifth starter.
