While general managers continue to work the phone lines looking for trades, let's take a quick look at a several players that were outrighted to the minors today...

  • After clearing waivers, the New York Yankees have outrighted outfielder Dewayne Wise to Class Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. However, Wise hasn't accepted the assignment and could opt for free agency instead. The 34-year-old was designated for assignment after the Yankees acquired Ichiro Suzuki.
  • The Chicago Cubs have outrighted right-handed reliever Jairo Asencio to Class Triple-A Iowa, reports Carrie Muskat of MLB.com. The team acquired Asencio off waivers from the Indians in June. The 28-year-old Asencio posted a 3.07 ERA across 14 2/3 innings of work with the Cubs.

  • The Detroit Tigers have outrighted left-handed pitcher Kelvin De La Cruz to the minor leagues, the team announced today via Twitter. The southpaw recently cleared waivers and started tonight for Erie.
