Bubba cleared waivers and has been assigned to the Columbus Clippers.
Fans of Bubba Crosby, rejoice. He cleared waivers and was outrighted to Class AAA Columbus. If the Yankees want to bring him back in September, they would have to add him to the 40-man roster.
I had a feeling that was going to happen; Shelley Duncan was sent from Columbus to Trenton, which suggested Columbus was expecting the arrival of another outfielder. (The poor Clippers have gone from having not enough outfielders to having too many.)
Don't know if Bubba will be playing for Columbus tonight, but I'll check the Clippers web site for the lineup and post an update when it goes up.UPDATE:
The Clippers just posted the lineup, and Bubba's not in it. Dunno if he's not there yet, or if they're just not using him. As I mentioned previously, they have a surfeit of outfielders. Aaron Guiel is not in the lineup, either.
