packing again

Former Mississippi State standout Craig Tatum is on the move again, having been claimed off waivers late Wednesday by the New York Yankees. Tatum was in camp with Arizona, which was attempting to stash the defensive-minded catcher in the minors. In just a few months time, Tatum has gone from Baltimore (where he hit .195 in 2011) to Houston to Arizona to New York. The Yankees now have four catchers on their 40-man roster, including Russell Martin, Francisco Cervelli and Austin Romine. They reportedly were looking for some veteran insurance when they snatched Tatum from the Diamondbacks. Romine has had injury issues this spring.
P.S. Itawamba Community College, freshly ranked No. 6 in the nation, split a non-division doubleheader with formerly fourth-ranked Hinds on Wednesday in Raymond. ICC is now 21-5. Hinds, which fell out of the latest NJCAA Division II poll, is 20-7. Jones County JC moved into the Top 20 at No. 16.
