Yankees demote Cory Wade to AAA

In order to make room for Chad Qualls, who was acquired from Philly over the weekend, the Yankees optioned the struggling reliever Cory Wade to Triple-A.

Wade, 29, was a pleasant surprise for the Yankees last season when he put up a 2.04 ERA, 6.8 K/9 and 1.8 BB/9 over 39.2 innings after they got him for virtually nothing. He even started off this season well, but lately he has been a mess. In his last 20 games, he has a 9.68 ERA, 9.17 K/9, and a 3.1 BB/9.

I expect that we’ll see Wade back in the Bronx again soon, but he’s been getting hit extremely hard lately and something had to happen.
