The Yankees announced Friday that they have designated LHP Josh Spence for assignment, a corresponding move to make room on the 40-man roster for the now-officially signed Kevin Youkilis.

Spence, 24, had been added to the 40-man roster when he was claimed off waivers from San Diego on Nov. 6. The Australian lefty made 11 appearances out of the Padres’ bullpen in 2012, going 0-1 with a 4.35 ERA, and he is 0-3 with a 3.15 ERA in 51 career appearances with San Diego.
