Yankees designate Chan Ho Park for assignment

Jul 31, 2010, 4:49 PM EDT

To make room on the roster for their various trade-deadline pickups, the Yankees have designated Chan Ho Park for assignment.
The move comes as no surprise, because Park has struggled mightily after signing a one-year, $1.2 million deal this offseason and earlier this week the Yankees were said to be trying to “unload” him.
With that said, his 29/12 K/BB ratio in 35.1 innings suggests he’s far from totally washed-up and Park had a 3.29 ERA and 101/44 K/BB ratio in 120 innings as a reliever during the previous two seasons. It wouldn’t surprise me to see him wind up latching on with another contender, regrowing his fantastic beard, and providing some quality innings down the stretch.

    Back to the Phillies perhaps?

    Get him Ruben – still better than the crap we have to throw out there most days.

    No surprise here…unless the Yankees traded him for Andy Marte who outpitched him in the 9th inning the other night.

    The thing that really sucks is that they sent Colin Curtis back to Scranton. He’s been clutch as hell.

    The only regret here is they couldn’t package Park with the Fat Toad and dump them on someone else , say the Red Sox , nah, they’re not that dumb .
