With Bray being released and Chapman perhaps going to the starting rotation, I wonder why the Reds didn't snag this guy off of waivers. Looks like some pretty stout numbers against lefties to me. Young. Cheap. I'd think this guy would have been worth a flyer.
The Yankees have claimed Josh Spence off waivers from the Padres, the team announced. Earlier today New York claimed David Herndon from the Blue Jays.Spence, 24, has pitched to a 3.15 ERA with 9.2 K/9 and 5.4 BB/9 in 40 relief innings for San Diego over the last two seasons. The left-hander has held lefty hitters to a .158/.247/.237 batting line as a big leaguer.
