Quick note... Slade Heathcott is gone.
According to the Yankees, and this report from CBSSports.com, the relationship between the Yankees and Heathcott is officially over:
"Heathcott signed a minor league deal with the White Sox... Heathcott
will join Triple-A Charlotte and will be placed on the DL with an
unknown ailment. The 25-year-old struggled in the early portion of the
season, slashing .218/.260/.287 with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre
before being released by the Yankees organization."
We all wanted to see great things from Slade in Yankee pinstripes, but it just didn't work out, and that's baseball.
Good luck Slade. I know BYB writer Steve Skinner will be disappointed. He is a big Heathcott fan.
