David Hale Elects Free Agency

After being designated for assignment to clear a roster spot for outfielder Clint Frazier, RHP David Hale has elected free agency in lieu of accepting an outright assignment with the Yankees.

The Yankees picked Hale up on a minor league contract and invited him to Spring Training this past offseason. In two appearances with the Yankees, Hale gave up two earned runs in five innings of mop-up relief.

Hale previously declined an outright assignment April 30 after being designated for assignment by the Minnesota Twins. The Twins claimed Hale off waivers after the Yankees designated him for assignment after the acquisition of A.J. Cole. Hale appeared once for the Twins, giving up four runs in three innings against the Cincinnatti Reds on April 27.
