Yankees bring up Mitchell, send down Ramirez

The Yankees have called up Bryan Mitchell and sent Jose Ramirez back to Triple-A. I assume that’s a short-term move to give them an extra arm after last night’s debacle.

Chris Capuano is still on schedule to be activated tomorrow, so he could take Mitchell’s spot right away (might depend on who’s needed out of the bullpen tonight). Capuano said he feels ready to go 100 pitches, so he’s basically at full strength.

Down in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the Yankees have released veteran reliever Jared Burton from his contract (pitched well early in spring training, but got hurt and was obviously overshadowed in this bullpen-rich organization).

Tonight’s lineup:

Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Chris Young LF
Alex Rodriguez DH
Mark Teixeira 1B
Carlos Beltran RF
Chase Headley 3B
Jose Pirela 2B
Stephen Drew SS
John Ryan Murphy C

LHP CC Sabathia

  2. Glad to see my man Pirella in the lineup. We really need to have Capt Crunch turn back the clock tonight & end this streak! And start swinging the bats! Otherwise, it don’t matter!

    • Crunchy might make a good situational lefty when the boys make the playoffs
      Those are wicked splits.,..RHB kill him
      Lhb he dominates
      Tampa went down today big night on campus for the yanks

  3. Yanks somehow need to have Drew Gregorius Pirela and Refsynder on this team
    AL teams can’t have black hole 8-9 hitters Girardi is full of shit

    • Although neither guy can play SS so they always have a no hit SS vs Lhp

  4. Girardi was always full of shit. Especially, when his voice goes up a couple of octaves during an interview. Then you REALLY know he’s lying!!

  5. Bottom of the order is just killing the yanks
    can’t wait for Mateo to be ready
    They need a Rhb platoon for Drew-Gorius
