The Yanks also announced they claimed two pitchers off waivers. They snagged righty David Herndon from the Blue Jays and lefty Josh Spence from the Padres.
The 27-year-old Herndon has a 3.85 ERA in 97 big-league games with the Phillies. He had Tommy John surgery in June.
Spence, a 24-year-old native of Australia, appeared in relief 11 times for San Diego last season, going 0-1 with a 4.35 ERA. He has a 3.15 ERA in 51 career major-league appearances with the Padres.
This probably clinches the East for the Yankees.
