Aug 8 - 8:21 AM

Pirates designated INF Dean Anna for assignment.

The move clears a roster spot for Jayson Nix. Anna had been claimed off waivers from the Yankees last month and could draw interest again.
Aug 3 - 11:18 AM

Pirates claimed INF Dean Anna off waivers from the Yankees.

The 27-year-old struggled during his cup of coffee with the Yankees earlier this season, slashing a mere .136/.200/.318 in his 25 plate appearances. He'll function as organizational depth for the Pirates.
Jul 5 - 2:53 PM

Yankees designated INF Dean Anna for assignment.

Anna hit .136/.200/.318 in 25 plate appearances with the Yankees earlier this season. The 27-year-old will likely pass through waivers and head back to Triple-A.
Jul 3 - 11:44 AM

Yankees optioned INF Dean Anna to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Anna was sent out in order for the Yankees to add some bullpen depth. The 27-year-old made the Opening Day roster and hit .136 (3-for-22) with one home run and one double in 12 games.
Apr 24 - 4:25 PM

Dean Anna hit his first major league home run Thursday against the Red Sox.

It was a blast to right field off Clay Buchholz. Anna drew his second start at second base in place of Brian Roberts tonight. He's also started at shortstop once. His playing time will remain pretty limited as long as Roberts and Derek Jeter stay healthy.
Apr 10 - 10:45 PM

Dean Anna made the Yankees' Opening Day roster as a utility infielder.

Anna, 27, batted just .262 this spring but did enough to impress Yankees manager Joe Girardi. The Yanks still have one more decision to make on backup infielders before setting their roster.

Dean Anna went 2-for-2 with a walk and two runs scored in the Yankees' 9-6 defeat of an Astros split-squad on Saturday.

The 27-yearold Anna looked like he might make the Yankees when he was acquired from the Padres in November, but that was before the team re-signed Brendan Ryan and brought in Kelly Johnson, Brian Roberts and Scott Sizemore. Now it'll probably take an injury to someone ahead of him to give him a shot. He's 5-for-13 so far this spring.
Mar 8 - 5:44 PM

Yankees acquired 2B Dean Anna from the Padres for RHP Ben Paullus.

The clubs pulled off the transaction on Wednesday. Anna, who turned 26 earlier this month, posted an impressive .331 batting average and .892 OPS in 2013 for Triple-A Tuscon. A lefty swinger and right-handed thrower, Anna could potentially fill a backup infielder role in the Bronx as soon as the 2014 season. The Yankees added him to the 40-man roster.
