Yankees claim Luke Byrd waves off Rays to add depth in bullpen

The Yankees claimed a right-handed Luke Bard assigned by Raise on Tuesday. He was named Triple A Scranton / Wilkes-Bar. There he takes on the depth of the bullpen.

Penn focused on the Yankees' trading deadlines. The Yankees welcomed Lou Trivino from A and Scott Effross from the Cubs to offset the loss of Chad Green and Michael King in elbow surgery.

Bird, 31, was modestly touted in Tampa Bay, but it worked.

Eight rescue appearances, three innings by Bird I admitted my earned run. 1.000 whips.

Raise dumped Bird and opened the list of left-handed Garrett Kleibinger, who had won the deadline. 

He spent the first three years of his career with angels.

The right-handed Carlos Espinal, called by SWB following a move that took place on Tuesday due to a trading deadline, was completely accused and sent back to SWB on Friday.
