Pena To The DL, Laird Called UpPosted: July 18, 2011
Brandon Laird has finally gotten a call up to the Majors. He was called after Ramiro Pena was placed on the disabled list for an emergency appendectomy. He will likely be out for four to six weeks. Laird was hitting .266/.296./415 with Triple-A Scranton and I ranked him 18th in my pre-season top 20. He will likely share time with Eduardo Nunez at third until A-Rod come back or Brian Cashman makes a trade.
