Yankees Designate Ramiro Pena For Assignment

The Yankees have designated Ramiro Pena for assignment, reports Peter Botte of The New York Daily News (on Twitter). The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Chris Dickerson, who was recalled from Triple-A as rosters expand today.

Pena, 27, hit .258/.325/.328 in Triple-A this summer while playing second, third, and shortstop. He had one single in four plate appearances with the Yankees earlier this season and is a .233/.266/.288 career hitter in 338 big league plate appearances.

That is correct. He really isn’t that great. He is a terrible batter, and even his defense isn’t the greatest, alot of mlb utility guys are still better. 27 yo is no loss.

I expected this move, Dickerson is a bit better hitter, although he will be easily designated if they need another slot.

Ramiro Pena is a slick fielding Infielder but needs to hit more to stay in The Majors.

since 1992…the yankees have yet to draft a SS even remotely capable of filling in for Jeter in case he gets hurt…
