Maxwell signs with the Yankees

Former Nationals OF Justin Maxwell has been acquired by the New York Yankees.

Maxwell was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for pitcher Todd Coffey. The 27-year old righty's numbers are certainly nothing to write home about over 122 career games: .201 BA/.319 OBP/ .379 SLG. But Maxwell does provide good speed and above average defense.

The Nats received RHP Adam Olbrychowsky (awesome name), a pitcher who reached AA ball for the first time last season. The move provides even more pitching depth to the Nationals farm teams.

So, with that we say good luck to JMax. Here's hoping he does something good enough to earn a nickname as cool as JMax in New York...


  1. Yankees have now positioned themselves as front-runners for the 2011 World Series Title.

  2. He better not go all Marlon Byrd on us and become an All Star.

  3. lets get a special comment from Adam Olbrychowsky...
