  • The Yankees have made no calls to the Rockies thus far today, tweets Ken Rosenthal.
  • Others believe the Indians are a big threat to acquire Jimenez, according to Jon Heyman of SI.com (on Twitter).
  • The Yankees’ interest in Jimenez appears to be waning, according to ESPN.com’s Jayson Stark. However, the Indians are sending signals that their “untouchables” might be available in a deal for Jimenez, according to Stark.
Rafael Soriano – R – NYY
Yankees activated RHP Rafael Soriano from the 60-day disabled list.
Soriano hasn’t pitched with the Yankees since May 13 due to right elbow soreness. The high-priced reliever was a complete disaster before going on the disabled list, posting a 5.40 ERA and 10/11 K/BB ratio over 15 innings. It’s likely he’ll have to earn his way back into a set-up role. Jul. 29 – 4:12 pm et
Steve Garrison – R – NYY
Yankees optioned LHP Steve Garrison to Double-A Trenton.
Garrison retired the only two batters he faced while in the pinstripes. He’s been optioned to clear a spot for Rafael Soriano, though the Yankees still need to make room on the 40-man roster. Jul. 29 – 4:09 pm et

  1. Would be nice to have a good start from A.J.

  2. Matt…
    Looks as though you are out of luck…3-0 Balt.
    Did you notice the bat Markakis was using? It was about the same as the one I have used for many many years, thick handle works well for one that has never ever hit a ball over an outfielders head.
    Nick has his hands off of the knob about 2″-3” which helps him with bat speed and control of the bat.
    Ok, 4-0 Balt….!
