• Yankees to recall Ramiro Pena

    I was just about to do a quick post on the Yankees’ internal options for filling Alex Rodriguez‘s roster spot, but that would be a waste now as Joel Sherman just reported that the Yankees will be recalling Ramiro Pena from Triple-A for the job. We’re all familiar with Pena, he’s generally solid on defense and on the bases and can play all over the field, but to call him “light hitting” would be a major compliment. I’m not going to tell you that his addition is ideal by any means, but there aren’t really any ideal options at all.
