Two weeks ago the Yankees acquired Jeff Francis from the A’s as a roster reinforcement, but now they’ve designated the journeyman left-hander for assignment.

Francis made just two appearances for the Yankees, both in relief, which continues a pattern of him moving from team to team with very short stays. He’s become sort of like an all-time quarterback, but for teams that need a fifth starter or long reliever.

This season alone Francis has pitched for three different teams in the majors.

    Bad day for pitchers from the Great White North.

      He helped the Jays when they played against the Yankees. I am grateful.

    Unfortunately for Francis, Dan Johnson hit a 3 run homer off him on Saturday.
