Ramirez DFA’d to make room for Park

The Chan Ho Park signing became official today, as the Yankees designated RP Edwar Ramirez for assignment.

Park will make $1.2 million this year as a reliever. I’d like to repeat, the “Yankees view him strictly as a reliever.”

Park had success with the Phillies as a reliever last year, but was unwatchable as a starter. There’s no need in trying out Park when the Yankees already have guys like Chad Gaudin, Alfredo Aceves, or even the loser of the Phil Hughes/Joba Chamberlain battle.

That’s it, that’s all. You will NOT see Park throw out the first pitch in a ballgame this year.

At least I hope not.

P.S.: Park has some beard shaving to do. I’ll post a pic when I see one.
