Well, it looks like Austin Romine is staying in the Yankees organization after all.
The Yankees have announced Romine has cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre. Romine was designated for assignment following Saturday’s game when the Yankees chose John Ryan Murphy as their back-up catcher. The surprising bit was no one claimed Romine and the Yankees didn’t trade him to a different team. Well, you can never have too much catching depth, that’s what I always say.
