Bader is placed on waivers by the Yankees (source).

Detroit -- The Yankees are 11 games out of postseason contention and have began to focus on long-term ambitions. 

New York has been giving its youthful stars playing time more often, allowing Oswald Peraza and Everson Pereira to develop experience for 2024 and beyond.

Tough judgments regarding odd man out follow. A source told's Mark Feinsand that Harrison Bader was the latest struggling Yankee to be waived on Tuesday.

Erik Boland of Newsday reported the move, which the club has not verified.

The revelation followed New York's release of struggling outfielder Josh Donaldson earlier in the day.

Bader joined the Yankees in a 2022 Trade Deadline transaction that sent Jordan Montgomery to St. Louis. 

He started Tuesday's game in center field and batted sixth against the Tigers in Detroit.

General manager Brian Cashman praised Bader's outfield defense after his 2021 NL Gold Glove Award-winning season with the Cardinals.
