The Yankees have designated outfielder Vernon Wells for assignment to clear room on their 40-man roster, ESPN.com's Buster Olney reported on Friday.

Wells, 35, spent one season in New York, where he hit .233 with 11 homers and 50 RBIs in 130 games. The 15-year veteran has seen his production decline over his last three seasons -- the previous two with the Angels -- as he's hit .227 over that span.

The three-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove Award-winner spent the first 12 years of his career with the Blue Jays.
