Former Yankees pitcher Wade LeBlanc has rejected an assignment to Triple-A and has elected to become a free agent, reports Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. The Yankees had designated LeBlanc for assignment on Wednesday to make room for David Huff on the roster.
LeBlanc, 29, allowed two runs on two hits, a walk, and a hit batter in an inning of work in his only appearance for the Yankees at the major league level. The lefty began the season with the Angels, posting a 3.69 ERA with a 43/14 K/BB ratio in 53 2/3 innings with Triple-A Salt Lake. He also made only one appearance for the Angels, allowing four runs over 6 1/3 innings in a start against the Athletics on May 30. The Angels designated him for assignment the next day, and the Yankees selected him off of waivers on June 3.
