After missing most of Spring Training due to injury, Sean Henn has found a new opportunity in San Diego. The left-hander was claimed off waivers by the Padres from the Yankees on Friday.
Henn, 27, was 1-0 with a 0.84 ERA in eight relief appearances this season between Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Class A Tampa. He was designated for assignment to create a roster spot on April 30, when the Yankees signed catcher Chad Moeller to a Major League contract.
Originally considered a contender to make New York's bullpen out of Spring Training as a lefty specialist, Henn was limited to just three Grapefruit League appearances due to tendinitis in his left shoulder and was outpitched by non-roster invitee Billy Traber, who subsequently made the Yankees' Opening Day roster.
