Yankees DFA Jess Todd, Pena sent down

From MLBTR:

The Yankees have designated right-hander Jess Todd for assignment, reports Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (via Twitter).  Todd was DFA’ed to clear room on the 40-man roster for Amaury Sanit, called up today by the Bombers.  Ramiro Pena was also sent to Triple-A to make room for Sanit on the 25-man roster.

Todd was claimed off waivers from Cleveland less than a week ago by the Yankees.  He has a 7.62 ERA in 28 1/3 career Major League innings, though a strong 9.2 K/9 rate and 2.42 K/BB ratio.  Todd was originally a second-round pick of the Cardinals in the 2008 amateur draft and joined the Indians as a player to be named later in the trade that sent Chris Perez to the Tribe and Mark DeRosa to St. Louis in 2009.
