Melky Mesa Called Up From AAA


With the AAA season ending prematurely the Yankees called up outfield Melky Mesa to the majors to help ease the blow of losing Mark Teixeira for another two weeks. Melky Mesa is a speedy outfielder who can allow Nick Swisher to play some first base along with Eric Chavez and Casey McGehee. Melky is also right handed so that did not hurt either I would assume. I'd personally rather see Chris Dickerson play more but there is no harm in bringing him up since he is already on the 40 man roster and home for the season.

  1. Yeah, I don't see Melky getting that much playing time. Granderson may be coming around, Ichiro has been hitting really well, and Dickerson has definitely earned some PT. Although taking DH at bats away from Raul and Andruw would be nice.
