As per Chad Jennings:
The Yankees announced three player moves this afternoon.

• LHP Aaron Laffey was claimed off waivers by Kansas City.

• LHP Raul Valdes elected free agency in lieu of being outrighted off the Major League roster.

• RHP Scott Proctor also elected free agency in lieu of being outrighted.

The Yankees 40-man roster now stands at 37 with Boone Logan as the only left-handed reliever. Laffey and Valdes were added as late-season left-handed depth.
As per my own perfunctory glance, the only Yankees worth protecting in the Rule 5 Draft that are not already on the 40-man roster are David Phelps and D.J. Mitchell. With that in mind, I believe thank yous are in order for the Royals and Misters Valdes and Proctor, for making the Yankees 40-man roster maneuvering that much easier.

  • Laffey was laughable, Proctor was a pain in the a...., and Valdes was not valuable.

    Was there ever a game where Proctor did not give up a run??
