UPDATE, 5:08PM

Greg Golson has been called up to replace A-Rod on the Yankees roster. He is available off the bench in tonight’s game. According to Kevin Goldstein, Golson has made big strides in his hitting skills, and now could be “solid 4th OF type”.

Yanks Officially Sign J.C. Romero

YANKS OFFICIALLY SIGN J.C. ROMERO

The Yanks have signed Romero to a minor-league deal. He was just released by the Nationals earlier today. Romero began his season with the Philadelphia Phillies, but was released in June. He then signed with the Nationals…who then released him this morning.

Romero is very good if they use him solely to get lefties out. Over his career, lefties have hit only .215 AVG, and they have a very meager .290 SLG% against Romero.

This should provide some left-handed relief depth that the Yanks so dearly need with Feliciano and Marte out.

Where will Jeter finish the year on the Career All Time Hit List?

If your like me (and if you are you are awesome)  then you get caught up a lot in lists.  My life revolves around lists.  The list I make before i go to bed on what needs to get done for the next day, the list I make each month on what I need to accomplish.  When it comes to baseball I love the All Time Yankee leaders lists and of course the Career All Time Lists.

Lets talk about the All Time Hit List.  As we all know Jeter is climbing the list and is in rare company currently in 27th place all time.   So where will Jeter finish the year on the list.   He currently has 78 hits on the season and if you double that he would finish the season with 156 hits.  Which would tie his career low that he set in 2003.  With 78 more hits on the season Jeter would finish the season in 20th place ahead of Craig Biggio with 3,082 hits and would be starring up at Dave Winfield to start the season next year.  Below is the all time list with credit going to baseballreference.com
