The New York Yankees have acquired right-hander Chris Schwinden off waivers from the Cleveland Indians, reports Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News.

In a corresponding roster move, the Yankees designated right-hander Danny Farquhar for assignment.

The Yankees represent Schwinden’s fourth club of the season. After starting the year with the New York Mets, the 25-year-old was designated for assignment and claimed by the Toronto Blue Jays. After one appearance with the Jays' Triple-A affiliate, Schwinden was DFA’d once again, landing with the Cleveland Indians. This time the right-hander lasted three appearances, but the end result was the same, another DFA.

Over his 13 starts this season for the Mets, Blue Jays and Indians Triple-A squads, Schwinden has maintained an ERA and WHIP of 4.16 and 1.313 with 6.4 SO/9 and 3.2 BB/9.

New York claimed Farquhar off waivers from the Oakland Athletics earlier this week. The 25-year-old did not make an appearance for any of the Yankees minor league affiliates, though he did maintain an ERA and WHIP of 4.46 and 1.409 over his 25 games with the Blue Jays (Double-A) and A’s (Triple-A).
