Jordan Groshans is headed back to the American League East.

The New York Yankees claimed the infielder off waivers from the Miami Marlins on Tuesday.

Groshans, 24, was originally taken with the 12th overall pick of the 2018 MLB Amateur Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays out of Magnolia High School in his hometown of Magnolia, TX.

He was traded to the Miami Marlins in 2022 in exchange for relievers Anthony Bass and Zach Pop. He appeared in 17 games for the team in 2022, batting .262 with a home run and three runs batted in in 61 at-bats.

Groshans spent last season with the Triple-A Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp.

In a corresponding move, the Yankees designated lefty Matt Krook for assignment.
