I guess the Bronx will no longer be Vernon.
With the signings of Matt Thornton and Brian Roberts (who currently are not on the 40-man as their signings aren’t official), there just wasn’t enough room for Wells on the team. Wells had a great April/May last season but he hadn’t hit for the rest of the 2013 campaign and seemed he was taking up some room on a depleted roster.
Although the Yankees removed Wells from their team, they are still trying to look to trade Ichiro Suzuki in order to get his contract off the books. Ichiro is owed $6.5 Million in 2014.
