Yankee News

Rosters Expanded:

Well, today is the day Yankees fans that the rosters have expanded! You can expect to see the likes of Chris Dickerson, Scott Proctor, Aaron Laffey & of course Jesus Montero in the next coming weeks. 2 players who didn’t get the call up were Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances. To make room for Proctor & Montero on the 40 man roster, Yankees moved Justin Maxwell to the 60 day DL & DFA’d Ryan Pope.

Kei Igawa Goes On DL:

Kei Igawa went on the DL yesterday, ending his season and his career as a New York Yankee.

  1. Later Igawa it was nice not knowing you.

  2. Montero had decent speed going from first to home on that martin Triple.

  3. I was surprised with the good outing Burnett had! Even though he won’t get the win, this is his game! 🙂

    • True Delia. It was hard to see the Yankee couldn’t score any runs for him. Well he is online i’m sure to make his next start. It will be interesting to see who goes to the bullpen. You can’t keep a 6 man rotation anymore.
