Yanks Call Up SanitPosted: May 12, 2011
Update (6:26pm): Via Mark Feinsand, as it turns out, the Yanks have decided to send down Ramiro Pena and then designate the newly acquired Jess Todd for assignment. Todd was DFA’d in order to make room for Amaury Sanit on the 40-man roster. It looks like they will have a three man bench for a while.
Original (5:00pm): Via Joel Sherman, the Yankees are calling up Amaury Sanit from Triple A to give them an extra arm in the bullpen. They now have two options now: 1) they can designate Buddy Carlyle for assignment or 2) option him down to Triple and place Phil Hughes on the 60-day disabled list, although I hope it’s the former. Sanit, 31, has been decent this season so far for Scranton pitching to a 4.96 ERA in 16.1 IP with a very good 4 K/BB. Don’t think too much of this, however, it is just temporary.
