Brendan Ryan Expected Back Tuesday vs. Angels

The New York Yankees are expecting Brendan Ryan to make his 2014 season debut on Tuesday in some capacity against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Ryan has been on a minor league rehab assignment and trying to get the Yankees mandated 40-50 at bats before being activated off the disabled list. Ryan started out in Tampa with the Tampa Yankees and has been moved up to the AA Trenton Thunder for the weekend. Ryan is somewhere around 20 at bats by my unofficial count so he could theoretically get close to 40 at bats by the end of the weekend and Monday.

The Yankees cannot call up Ryan until Tuesday, without another roster move anyway, because Michael Pineda cannot be added to the disabled list while on suspension for using pine tar against the Boston Red Sox. Pineda was suspended for 10 games and with the rain out and the game being pushed to June with the Seattle Mariners the 10th game for Pineda is Monday against the Angels.

Pineda will be added to the disabled list on Tuesday before the game and the Yankees can finally make a roster move. New York will have to play with a 24 man roster tonight, all weekend, and on Monday due to Pineda being a big dummy. With Dean Anna down in AAA with Scranton it looks like Ryan is finally ready to be the back up for Derek Jeter.
