The Yankees decided not to tender contracts to 26-year old righty pitcher Chris Britton and 28-year old righty swinging outfielder Justin Christian. Britton pitched in 15 games (0 starts) for the Yankees last season and he was 0-0 with a 5.09 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP. He has now pitched in 78 games (0 starts) in his major league career and he is 0-3 with 1 save, a 3.83 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. Britton was quickly snapped up by the San Diego Padres. Christian played in 24 games for the Yankees this season and he was 10 for 40 (.250 avg, .627 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 6 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. The Yankees won’t miss either of these guys because they can buy better ones.
