Yankees Designate Steve Garrison For Assignment

The Yankees have cleared a 40-man roster spot for Austin Romine by designating Steve Garrison for assignment, tweets Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News.

Garrison, who the Yankees claimed off waivers from the Padres just over a year ago, spent most of the year in the starting rotation for Double-A Trenton. He posted a 5.95 ERA in 75 2/3 innings, with 5.5 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9.

    Girardi must really not want Posada to catch.

    Pretty cool that a lot of the young kids are up and possibly in the lineup together.

      Well, I don’t think it’s that he doesn’t WANT Posada to catch.  It’s that Posada hasn’t worked out as a catcher all year and didn’t even catch in spring training.  For one night, he was passable but just like pitchers have to get into mid-season form, catchers also build up a toughness during the year.  Posada is probably plenty sore today and isn’t capable of catching too many days in a row.  Plus, with the roster expanded to 40, why not call up the kids?  They’re just looking for a good receiver.  Anything Romine provides with the bat will be considered a bonus.

        I wasn’t able to watch the game today. I know 3 bases were stolen off of Montero and the pitcher. How did he appear otherwise defensively?

          It wasn’t a strong showing defensively, but I think it was more so because of Garcia’s split finger in the dirt. Plus his slow stuff leaves less time for Montero’s throw to reach second base.

    I wonder what Mr. Hat has to say about this.

      Garrison was sent down, but Mr. Hat and Mr. Stick were not.  Awkward.

    But, but…the Yankees don’t have a farm system. They buy all their talent! Waaaaaaah
