Welcome Back, Refsnyder & Shreve!...


The Yankees have announced two players have been recalled from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  

Rob Refsnyder was called up to replace Greg Bird, who has been placed on the 10-Day Disabled List with a bruised right ankle.  All things considered for Bird, this is best-case scenario.  His hitless act was getting stale in the Bronx and he needs the time to recover from the ankle injury he suffered at the end of training camp (assuming that's been an on-going cause for his difficulties at the plate).  Chris Carter becomes the starting first baseman, with an assist from Ref.  

Lefty reliever Chasen Shreve was also recalled to replace Luis Cessa.  Cessa provided long relief for Luis Severino in yesterday's loss to the Toronto Blue Jays during his one day stay in the Bronx.  He did his job (kept the rest of the bullpen on rest for the night).  

Maybe I should consider taking a job as an Uber driver for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to New York City route.  It's starting to get some activity!

Here's hoping that the latest Bronx stay is excessively successful for both Refsnyder and Shreve!  Welcome back, Guys!  For Bird, I hope that time off allows you to return to 100% good health and positions you to rehabilitate your batting average upon your return.  For Cessa, get used to it. I think you'll be making this trip frequently this year.

Let's Go, Yankees!
