Yankees DFA Towers, Activate Gaudin

The Yankees Designated Josh Towers for assignment today to make room for newly-acquired Chad Gaudin. Towers was called up yesterday, with Mark Melancon being demoted, in case of a short start by CC Sabathia, or an extra-inning game following Friday’s 15 inning marathon.

For Towers this isn’t a bad thing necessarily. Sure, he would like to have stayed on the MLB roster, but now he knows the Yankees thought highly of him enough to call him up. While he is still not going to be on the 40-man roster, he will have the opportunity to be claimed by another team and be on their MLB roster. If not, he goes back to the same point he was already at.
