Yankees keep Curtis, lose Golson 1

In order to make room for recent roster moves the Yankees designated outfielders Colin Curtis and Greg Golson for assignment. Today they both cleared waivers, Curtis was assigned to Triple-A and Golson became a free agent, according to Chad Jennings of the Journal News.

Golson is remembered for the assist he made back in 2010 when he nailed Carl Crawford at third base in a game against the Rays that held playoff implications. He was a decent toolsy outfielder, but wasn’t seen as much more than a fifth outfielder type at best with the Yankees.

Curtis is very similar with different tool sets. He’ll likely play most of the season in Triple-A and will only see time in the Bronx if there is an injury. Instead they’ll probably have a veteran outfielder (most likely Andruw Jones) and Chris Dickerson as their fourth and fifth outfielders.

    Don't have a lot of confidence in Jones' bat, would've preferred to give Posada a one year contract at similar terms as Jones, Jorge gives Yanks a clutch hitter from both sides of the plate over Jones' RH bat.
