    Mariners Designate Robert Andino For Assignment
    By Steve Adams [May 24 at 8:35pm CST]
    The Mariners have designated infielder Robert Andino for assignment and elevated shortstop Carlos Triunfel to the big league club. This seemingly simple transaction took some unusual twists and turns throughout the day.

    The net of Seattle’s dealings today is that Andino finds himself in DFA limbo, with the team having ten days to trade, outright, or release him. The 29-year-old Andino batted just .184/.253/.237 for the M's this season, appearing primarily at shortstop. He also has extensive big league experience at second base and has seen some time at third base. Andino was acquired by the Mariners from the Orioles in exchange for Trayvon Robinson back in November.

    In parts of nine Major League seasons between the Marlins, Orioles and Mariners, Andino is a .232/.294/.318 hitter. He grades out as a plus defender -- particularly at second base -- according to both UZR and The Fielding Bible.

    Would Andino be worth a waiver claim to help our bench?

    Not worth a claim in my opinion. Wouldn't mind upgrading our bench, but not with him.

    There was a time when I thought Andino would be a decent 25th man, but Izturis is a better defender and neither hits much. I'll take the guy who can handle SS best if the offense (or lack thereof) is roughly equal.

    Yankees Designate Ben Francisco For Assignment
    By Zach Links [May 26 at 11:07am CST]
    The Yankees have designated Ben Francisco for assignment, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (via Twitter). The move will create room for the newly-acquired David Huff on the roster.

    Francisco, 31, has hit just .114/.220/.182 in 50 plate appearances this season. The Bombers signed the outfielder to a minor league deal in March after he was cut loose by the Indians. Francisco played for the Blue Jays, Astros, and Rays in 2012 and posted a combined .240/.285/.385 batting line with four home runs in 207 total plate appearances.

    Francisco is a living breathing RH Hitting OF who can play all the spots, but he isn't particularly strong against LHP and that is what is needed most. They have guys who can hit against RHP. Pass.
