Sizemore Called Up, Zoilo Sent Down, LeBlanc Claimed

The New York Yankees have sent down Zoilo Almonte with the return of Carlos Beltran on the horizon. With four healthy outfielders on the roster already Zoilo was a bit of a wasted roster spot. The Yankees called up Scott Sizemore to take his place on the roster, at least temporarily. Kind of ironic that Sizemore started the season wearing #24 and Zoilo had been wearing it since he was called back up.

Sizemore is expected to be sent back down when Carlos Beltran is activated Friday against the Kansas City Royals. Sizemore will look to make the most of his call up though and is in the lineup tonight against the Oakland A's.

The Yankees also claimed Wade LeBlanc off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim after he was designated for assignment this week. LeBlanc is only 29 years old and left handed and could mark the end of the Alfredo Aceves Part Duex experiment in New York, and not an inning too soon.
