When the Yankees claimed first baseman Steve Pearce off waivers last week with the plan to use him off the bench against lefties, I said it was a job Brandon Laird was capable of and a sign that the Yankees didn't believe in him. Shortly after that he was designated for assignement and now he ...
The Yankees announced this afternoon that they have re-aquired first baseman and outfielder Steve Pearce from the Astros for cash. To make room for Pearce on the 40-man roster, the Yankees have designated third base prospect Brandon Laird for assignment, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

They also plan on adding former Yankee Scott Proctor, third baseman Brandon Laird, and outfielder Chris Dickerson, according to Mark ...
Brandon Laird certainly isn't on the same level as other prospects like Jesus Montero, but for people who follow the minor leagues he is somebody that has been anticipated for a little while now.
