Kyle Roller... Come On Down?

Just about two hours ago I put up a post asking for Kendrys Morales to be signed and added to the club as insurance for both Mark Teixeira and Carlos Beltran but if anybody knows me I always have a Plan B. That Plan B is currently playing first base in Scranton with the RailRiders and his name is Kyle Roller.

Roller is old for a prospects at age 26, although its not like the Yankees exactly rush their prospects, but has consistently put up big numbers in the minor leagues. Roller has crushed both Double-A and Triple-A pitching in recent seasons and is the only true first basemen we have anywhere close to being able to help us. Roller's chance may be now.

Just a quick look at what Roller has done in Trenton and Scranton:

Trenton: 90 PA, .385/.456/.808, 239 wRC+
Scranton: 80 PA, .286/.386/.514, 152 wRC+
