Word spread today that Chase Whitley was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Rays.  Newsday writes:

 "...righthander Chase Whitley, who underwent Tommy John surgery last May 19, has been claimed off waivers by the Rays."

Eric Boland also writes that the Yankees added 3 players to their 40 man roster.

"...righthanders Johnny Barbato and Rookie Davis and outfielder Ben Gamel.

Barbato, 23, who came to the Yankees from the Padres last Dec. 29 in exchange for reliever Shawn Kelley, went 6-2 with a 2.67 ERA in 40 relief outings between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Gamel, 23, was named the International League Rookie of the Year after batting .300 with 10 homers, 14 triples, 28 doubles and 64 RBIs in 129 games with Scranton.

Davis, 22, went 8-7 with a 3.86 ERA in 25 games (24 starts) between Class A Tampa and Double-A Trenton."

So there you have it.

I should have named my kid "Rookie". Kidding, Rookie's first name is actually William. Oh well.
