Some Yankee News

Yankees placed INF Ramiro Pena on the 15-day disabled list with appendicitis.

Pena underwent an emergency appendectomy Monday morning and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. It’s the latest blow for the Yankees’ infield, which may force GM Brian Cashman to look for some help before the trade deadline.

Yankees recalled INF/OF Brandon Laird from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He’ll replace the injured Ramiro Pena on the active roster. Laird, 23, was batting .266/.296/.415 with 10 homers and 49 RBI over 362 plate appearances at the Triple-A level this season. Eduardo Nunez has been shaky defensively at third base, so Laird could sneak some playing time if he swings the bat well in his first taste of the bigs.

Morning Bits 7/18/11

Good morning.  Yankees split the series with Toronto and now move onto the Rays.  It was good to see Hughes have a good start.  It’s going to be a hot one this week.  Stay cool and enjoy the games.

and here are your morning links…

* Soriano could pitch in some rehab games next week.  This is a big plus for the bullpen.

* As it’s been reported the Rockies and Yankees are talking about Jiminez.  He would take a hull it looks like.  What are your thoughts?  Leave them in the comments.

* Yankees Recalled Dickerson demote Golson.

Game Review from MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez:

TORONTO — Phil Hughes isn’t sure how close he is to being the 18-game winner and budding star he was last season. But after Sunday’s start, he at least knows he’s a lot better than he was earlier this year, when a dip in velocity and a rise in ERA put him on the disabled list for all of 84 games.

Hughes’ outing in a 7-2 win by the Yankees over the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre wasn’t flashy, and it was hardly outstanding. But it signified major progress, a giant step in the right direction and — at last — a victory.
