by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/6/2013) Orioles outfielder Russ Canzler, who has been waived by the Blue Jays, Indians and Yankees this offseason, homered twice in an exhibition game against Spain's World Baseball Classic team Wednesday, finishing 2 for 2 with six RBI.

Yanks claim Canzler


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/4/2013) Pity poor Russ Canzler. So far this offseason, he's been cut loose by the Indians, Blue Jays, and then the Indians again. As of Friday, he is now going to test his luck with the Yankees, who claimed him off waivers after the Indians dropped him to make room for the newly-acquired Brett Myers. The Yankees, looking for a right-handed power bat who can play the outfield, may have just turned Canzler into a nice sleeper candidate for 2013.
