Yankees sent INF Corban Joseph outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster. Joseph had a cup of coffee with the Yankees in 2013 and hit just .239 with a .712 OPS in 188 at-bats at Triple-A. The 25-year-old suffered an undisclosed injury that ultimately ended his season and limited him to just 47 games at the minor league level.

Yankees activated INF Corban Joseph from the 60-day disabled list.

Joseph was limited to just 49 games between Triple-A and the majors this season due to an undisclosed injury. He shouldn't have trouble being ready for spring training, though, when he'll compete for a bench role.

Yankees optioned INF Corban Joseph to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Yankees recalled INF Corban Joseph from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He'll take the place of Kevin Youkilis (back) on the active roster. Joseph, 24, is a .282/.365/.430 hitter over parts of six seasons in the minors and will function as a reserve infielder.

Yankees purchased the contract of 2B Corban Joseph from Double-A Trenton.

Joseph, 23, hit .277/.353/.415 with five homers and 58 RBI over 499 at-bats for Trenton this season. The former fourth-round pick is below average defensively and hasn't progressed much with the bat, but the Yankees are still holding out hope that he'll be a useful piece of the roster eventually.
