Rich Hill Called Up To Replace Matt Thornton

The New York Yankees traded Matt Thornton to the Washington Nationals today so they could save some cash and create more flexibility in their bullpen. Both manager Joe Girardi and General Manager Brian Cashman stated that the move was partly made to make room for some of the younger guys in the Yankees system, namely Manny Banuelos, Jacob Lindgren, and Tyler Webb. Then the Yankees went and promoted 34 year old Rich Hill to take Thornton's roster spot and use him as a LOOGY. Say what?

I'm as confused as you are. I know this move was more for the 2015 season or even more so for September when Lindgren and Banuelos could be called up but don't piss on me and tell me it's raining. Don't trade a guy away for cash to make room for a young guy and then call up a journeyman in Hill. Whatever.
