Via Sweeny Muri of WFAN, the Yankees have designated outfielder Randy Winn for assignment to make room for Curtis Granderson.

The Yankees really had three options before activating Granderson. Send the versatile Ramiro Pena (.211/.244/.237) or Kevin Russo (.250/.286/.350) back to Triple A. Or cut Randy Winn. The Yankees chose the ladder and cut the punch-less vet. Winn has been awful this season(.213/.300/.295). The Yankee inked Winn during the off-season to provide outfield depth. Winn just didn’t cut it (no pun intended).

To me, this move solidifies that the Yankees view Brett Gardner as an everyday player. Gardner has held his own this season, achieving a .370 OBP and stealing 17 bases. We’ve all seen enough of Marcus Thames in the outfield and Kevin Russo is fine as a fourth outfielder. Gardner has no competition in left field for playing time.
