3 Yankees Plus Axford, Bailey, and Hanson Among 43 Non-Tendered

Adams' lack of hits led to lack of a team
43 players will be looking for new organizations after they were non-tendered by their current teams on Monday. Among them are former Milwaukee Brewers closer John Axford, Red Sox reliever and former AL Rookie of the year Andrew Bailey, Blue Jays slugging catcher J.P. Arencibia, and Angels starter Tommy Hanson.

The Yankees did not offer deals to infielder David Adams, untility infielder Jayson Nix, and reliever Matt Daley. Adams was a successful hitter in the minor leauges and the Yankees had been really high on his bat. With all the injuries the Yankees suffered in 2013, Adams got a chance to play in 43 games, but the results were not good.

In 152 plate appearances, the natural second baseman had a slash line of .193/.252./.286. His struggles may have been complicated by the mental and physical acuity needed to learn a new position (third base).

Nix is a hard nosed player, who unfortunately, doesn't have many hits in his bat. The six-year veteran stole 13 bases in 14 attempts and played stellar defense, but posted a .619 OPS. He became expendable when the Yankees signed Brendan Ryan.

Daley was called up from Triple-A Scranton when the Yankees piching staff was beset by injuries. He appeared in seven games, won one, and did not allow a run in six innings pitched.
