Yankees Designate Ryan Pope For Assignment

The Yankees designated Ryan Pope for assignment, according to Mike Ashmore of the Hunterdon County Democrat (on Twitter). The 25-year-old right-hander was not on the Yankees' active roster; the club had to designate him to create 40-man roster space for Jesus Montero and Scott Proctor.

Pope, a 2007 third rounder, has split the 2011 season between three of the Yankees' minor league affiliates, mostly pitching at Double-A and Triple-A. In total, he has a 5.12 ERA with 8.9 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9 in 45 2/3 innings this year.

Of all the Jesus has risen jokes I’m surprised no one has brought up the John Turturro line from The Big Lebowski.

“Nobody ****s with the Jesus!”

I understand that. They also called up Justin Maxwell and DL60’d him to make a spot. Just letting you know he was playing tonight.

Noesi has to remain in the minors for 10 days before he can come back up. Once the ten days are up, he will be brought back up.
