Now that we picked up Gosling doesnt this guys stats last year deserve a pickup?
per rotoworld:
Yankees designated RHP Jason Anderson for assignment.
The move makes room for Darrell Rasner on the roster. Anderson, 26, had a 2.66 ERA in 67 2/3 innings for Triple-A Columbus last season and batters hit just .190 off him, so he might be claimed off waivers. The Yankees won't miss him, though. Feb. 11 - 5:10 pm et

Judging only by the numbers you just posted, I would say he is most definitely worth a long look. Nice find.

With the signing of Hatteberg though, who else would get the boot if we picked this guy up?

Really why haven't we DFA Bong?

I might of DFA him before Hudson, though Luke was real rough last year, he still has an arm.

I don't know why we are so hard on Bong, he hasn't ever really gotten much of a chance, alot like Bruce Chen before him who actually did pretty well for Baltimore last year when given a chance. Least we forget he wasn't the worst on the team when he was sent back down in '04, in fact far from it.

well, his k/bb ratio is less than desirable and he gives up more than a hit per inning.

Oh and after 2002 his lowest ERA in the minors has been 4.50, and that was last year, when he appeared in just 1 game.

Andersons ERA and opp Batting average make him attractive.

Bong had lots of potential.

Before he blew out his arm, that is.

In the Darrell Rasner/Jason Anderson swap, the Yankees simply exchanged known middle reliever-ness (JA) for potential and youth (DR, who's a couple years younger and was a much higher draft choice). It's not totally unlike the Gosling/Hudson decision.

San Diego Padres Claimed pitcher Jason Anderson off waivers from the New York Yankees; designated Kenny Baugh for assignment.
Does anyone know if Baugh would be worth a look.

From Sportsline:

The Padres acquired right-handed pitcher Kenny Baugh from the Tigers in exchange for right-handed pitcher Ricky Steik. Baugh, 26, went 12-8 with a 3.38 ERA over 165 1/3 innings and 107 strikeouts in 28 Triple-A starts. His ERA ranked fifth among league leaders. Steik, 21, went 0-6 with three saves and a 2.40 ERA (60 innings) in 54 relief appearances for Class A Fort Wayne in 2005. In 60 innings, he walked 24 and struck out 53, while holding opponents to a .247 average.
