Crozier Claimed by Yankees

The New York Yankees claimed first baseman Eric Crozier off waivers from the Blue Jays on Tuesday and optioned him to Double-A Trenton.

The 26-year-old was hitting just .226 with 5 homers and 14 RBI in 37 games with Triple-A Syracuse. Crozier did not produce with Syracuse hitting just .114 (4-35) with runners in scoring positin. With RISP and two outs, Crozier had just one hit in seventeen at bats.

Crozier was obtained in a trade last summer and at the time many predicted he would take over first base for the club.

The Blue Jays designated Crozier for assignment last week when they purchased the contract of top prospect Aaron Hill. Recommended Stories
