The New York Yankees have outrighted infielder Ramiro Pena to Triple-A after he cleared waivers, reports Donnie Collins of the Scranton Times-Tribune:

The Yankees designated Pena for assignment this weekend to make room on their roster for outfielder Chris Dickerson.

Pena has only played in three games for New York this season, collecting a hit over four at-bats. The 27-year-old has spent a majority of the season with the Yankees’ Triple-A affiliate, hitting .258/.325/.328 with thirteen doubles, three triples and two home runs over 360 at-bats.

After appearing in sixty-nine and eighty-five games for the Yankees during the 2009-10 seasons, Pena has only collected forty-four at-bats over the 2011-12 campaigns. He owns a career clip of .233/.266/.288 at the major league level compared to one of .258/.320/.330 over seven seasons in the minors.
