New York Yankees Outright Chris Dickerson To Triple-A

The New York Yankees outrighted outfielder Chris Dickerson to Class Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre today, the club announced in a press release (via Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York).

The roster move opens up a 40-man roster spot, which I'm assuming is for corner infielder Eric Chavez since the Yankees have yet to announce the signing. While Dickerson has been outrighted to Triple-A, he will remain in camp with the Yankees major league camp for the remainder of spring training.

The Yankees acquired Dickerson in a trade with the Milwaukee Brewers last year in a trade for right-handed reliever Sergio Mitre. I'm a little surprised he cleared waivers; he could be an OK fourth outfielder for a team. The 29-year-old hit .241/.341/.325 and swiped 16 bags for the Yankees Triple-A affiliate last season.
