The Yankees are playing the waiver wire quite often these days. Just recently they grabbed RHP Danny Farquhar off waivers, but they have already designated him for assignment to make room for their next waiver claim – RHP Chris Schwinden, whom they claimed off waivers from the Indians on Friday, according to Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News.
Schwinden has been busy himself lately. He started the season with the Mets organization, who he was drafted by, and then was selected off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays in the first week of June. Then less than a week later he was claimed by the Indians and during the same month he’s grabbed by the Yankees.
Schwinden, 25, has played in parts of two seasons in the majors with the Mets. Over 29.2 innings he has a 6.98 ERA, 5.5 K/9, and 2.7 BB/9. Since being drafted in 2008, Schwinden has a career minor league ERA of 3.68 with a 7.7 K/9 and 2.2 BB/9.
