Yankees Off Day Update on the Scranton Shuttle


The New York Yankees may have found a new untapped strategy with their bullpen and what I like to refer to as the Scranton Shuttle. New York over the past calendar year has exploited their 40 man roster a bit by consistently moving players in and out of their bullpen to always have a fresh arm to burn out on any given night. We saw it a ton last season with a pitcher coming up for a game to  throw two or three innings only to head back down to Scranton the very next day for a fresh arm for Joe Girardi to use and abuse.

We didn't show this too much attention last season so this season I wanted to take advantage of slow news days or even Yankees off days to keep a running tally on the Scranton Shuttle just for informational purposes only. Keep it bookmarked because we're going to be updating it all the time.
