Open Thread

Solid win for the Yanks today. It was a very good game. Gordon pitched quite well, and Brett Gardner got the walk-off in the bottom of the 10th. As usual, full game review will come tomorrow morning.

In transaction news, the Yanks sent Lance Pendleton back down to AAA. Also, Amaury Sanit was released. Sanit had just been sent to the DL for his elbow.

Also, Scott Kazmir has been released from the LA Angels. According to Alden Gonzalez:

Cashman said he hasn’t looked into the possibility of acquiring Scott Kazmir but will eventually. “I know he’s struggled,” he said.

We’ll keep you posted on any Kazmir rumors.

Anyway, a WIN for the Yanks. Use this as an open thread. Have a good night everyone.

Yankees DFA Jess Todd, Pena sent down

From MLBTR:

The Yankees have designated right-hander Jess Todd for assignment, reports Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News (via Twitter).  Todd was DFA’ed to clear room on the 40-man roster for Amaury Sanit, called up today by the Bombers.  Ramiro Pena was also sent to Triple-A to make room for Sanit on the 25-man roster.

Todd was claimed off waivers from Cleveland less than a week ago by the Yankees.  He has a 7.62 ERA in 28 1/3 career Major League innings, though a strong 9.2 K/9 rate and 2.42 K/BB ratio.  Todd was originally a second-round pick of the Cardinals in the 2008 amateur draft and joined the Indians as a player to be named later in the trade that sent Chris Perez to the Tribe and Mark DeRosa to St. Louis in 2009.
