Yankees Release Minor Leaguer Brian Anderson 2

brian-andersonThe Yankees have released former outfield prospect turned pitcher Brian Anderson over the weekend, according to Mike Ashmore of the Hunterdon County Democrat.

Anderson, 29, was originally drafted in the first round of the 2003 draft by the White Sox. He was considered a prospect, but ultimately failed to make it. In a last ditch effort to save his career he switched to the mound where the Yankees gave him a shot, but he must not have shown enough promise as they released him pretty quickly.

In seven appearances this year he had a 1.17 ERA, nine strikeouts, and one walk over 7.2 innings. Not bad numbers, but the stuff must not have been there.
