Jun 15 - 8:58 AM

Yankees designated LHP Wade LeBlanc for assignment.

LeBlanc got the boot to clear a 40-man roster spot for fellow left-hander David Huff, who was acquired off waivers from the Giants on Wednesday. LeBlanc allowed two earned runs in his lone one-inning appearance with the Yankees, but he may draw interest on waivers.
Jun 11 - 6:54 PM

Yankees claimed LHP Wade LeBlanc off waivers from the Angels.

LeBlanc was designated for assignment by the Angels over the weekend, but they weren't able to sneak him through waivers. The 29-year-old hasn't enjoyed much success in the majors recently, but he could function as a long reliever for New York.
Jun 3 - 3:49 PM

Wade LeBlanc will start on Thursday versus the Mariners.

LeBlanc has been available out of the bullpen since being called up Sunday, but he hasn't been needed and now is officially starting Thursday. The veteran left-hander holds a career 4.51 ERA over 417 big league innings and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Angels purchased the contract of LHP Wade LeBlanc from Triple-A Salt Lake.

LeBlanc posted a 3.69 ERA over nine starts at Salt Lake but had allowed just two earned runs over his last 20 innings. He'll be available out of the bullpen for now but could start the next time the No. 5 spot comes up.
May 25 - 1:34 PM

Angels reassigned LHP Wade LeBlanc to minor league camp.

The 29-year-old southpaw looked good in Cactus League action, tossing 5 1/3 scoreless innings while posting a 1.13 WHIP and 6/2 K/BB ratio. With his ability to both start and relieve, he should get a chance with the Halos during the 2014 campaign.

LeBlanc posted a rough 5.40 ERA in seven starts and 10 relief appearances this past season for the Astros and Marlins. But the Halos are desperate for pitching depth.
