    Yankees DFA Eric Hacker

    By Drew Silva [May 9 at 6:46pm CST]
    Marc Craig of the Newark Star-Ledger*reports that the Yankees have designated right-hander Eric Hacker for assignment. *The 25-year-old was 1-1 with a 4.11 ERA this season in three starts for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. *The Yankees needed his 40-man roster spot for Brett Tomko, who was added to the bullpen mix this afternoon.

    Hacker posted a 2.43 ERA and a 115/37 K/BB ratio in 144 1/3 innings last season between Single-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton. *He's likely to latch on with another organization.

    What type Prospect is he? Is Hacker worth a waiver claim? Then send him to AAA.

    Good BB/9 rate throughout career but he has been aged beyond the level he has been playing at.

    a list of articles discussing him

    Hacker, 25, was 9-6 with a 2.43 ERA (144.1IP, 121H, 47R, 39ER, 37BB, 115K) in 26 combined starts with Single-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton in 2008, ranking second in the organization in ERA. He limited opponents to three runs or less in all but one start, including a stretch of four straight starts without giving up an earned run from 4/8-24 w/ Tampa (27.0IP, 7H, 2R, 2BB, 18K). On 4/8 vs. Dunedin (TOR), in his second start of the season (w/ Tampa), he threw 7.0 no-hit innings but did not record a decision. Hacker went 2-0 with a 1.54 ERA in two postseason starts for the Double-A champion Trenton Thunder, recording the win in Game 1 of the Eastern League Division Series and Game 1 of the Championship Series.

    In six minor league seasons (2002-08), Hacker owns a 30-15 record with a 2.70 ERA in 75 games (67 starts). He was selected by the Yankees in the 23rd round of the 2002 First-Year Player Draft.
    In 6 minor league seasons he has 414 IP. Arm troubles? Regardless I'm not interested in the least... If the Yankees can afford to let pitching walk right now we probably need to be looking else where. my .02
