Myers DFA

From Peter Abraham:

The Journal News is reporting that the Yankees have decided to designate LHP Mike Myers for assignment.

General manager Brian Cashman has yet to return a telephone call seeking comment. But several team sources said the 38-year-old Myers will be taken off the roster before Monday’s game against Toronto.

It is unclear at this point who would replace him in the bullpen.

Myers is 3-0 with a 2.66 ERA. But left-handers are 24 of 77 (.312) with eight extra-base hits and only 18 strikeouts against him. (Source)

Myers had one job and couldn't do it. That's why he's gone. Also, I feel that the Yankees are preparing for the return of Jason Giambi and the call-up of Joba Chamberlain.
