Yankees Release Russell Branyan

The only surprising sentence here is the one that tells you that Russell Branyan was on the Yankees.

The Yankees have released Russell Branyan, according to Donnie Collins of the Scranton Times-Tribune (via Twitter).  The veteran was with the club’s Triple-A affiliate for the bulk of the year.

Branyan, 36, missed considerable time with back issues this season.  The slugger played in just 33 games for Scranton Wilkes-Barre but posted an impressive .309/.438/.655 slash line with eleven homers.
