Wasn’t he the bad guy in the first Shrek movie? If so, I wish him zero success. Very mean person.

Me, too.  Stat line looks good, he is only 25…can’t have too much pitching.

Yankees typically have success with these under the radar relievers. We’ll see!

Hey, don’t laugh!  Remember Aaron Small in 2005?  He was picked up and he went 10-0 with a 3.20 ERA!

Nice move Yankees! We need MiL pitching depth. Good Blue Jays MiL stats.

The Yankees will be fine, we have 3 good starters, 4 in 2 weeks and we get to see Adam Warrwn pitch , he has lingering in Trlple A with decent numbers.  He is 25 , ready to go, the good thing is we are beginning to hit with men in scoring position and we get Gardner back in 2 weeks.  I thing Joe G is a much better manager than we give him credit fo. Iam out

It actually was well played enough to post laughing twice.

They released him from their 40-man roster to make room for non-roster starter A.J. Griffin, who was recently promoted to the A’s when Brandon McCarthy was DL’d.

When the A’s finally release Brian Fuentes, Derek Barton, Chris Carter and Mike Taylor, additional roster spots will open up, as needed, for (future) major league players.
