Devil Rays sweep Yankees

From BA:

New York Yankees
Recalled: RHP Colter Bean, RHP Chris Britton, LHP Chase Wright
Optioned to Triple-A: RHP Darrell Rasner
Placed on minor league disabled list: RHP Guillermo Villalona, 2B Carlos Mendoza, 3B Marcos Vechionacci, SS Angel Chavez, OF Austin Jackson
Reinstated from disabled list: 2B Russell Raley, SS Grant Plumley
Rehabilitation assignment: RHP Jeff Karstens, RHP Chien-Ming Wang (both high Class A Tampa)

Jackson, the club’s eighth-round pick in 2005, is on the shelf with a lower body injury. Bean, 29, is logging significant big league time for the first time.

Vech hurt his hand on a defensive play last week, I doubt it’s a major injury, but you never know…

Potential Scrap Heap Pickup: SS Chase Lambin, who was cut by the Mets. He can’t be worse than Miguel Cairo, could he? Hee Seop Choi was released by the D-Rays, but word on the street is he’s heading back to Korea.

He’s still in baseball? RHP Paul Shuey (reinstated from the minor league DL by the O’s), OF Wil Cordero (released by the Mets), and OF Angel Fermin (former Yankee prospect was cut by the D-Rays).

    Shame about Choi. I still maintain that Dusty screwed him up — wouldn’t want some slow guy who walks alot clogging up those basepaths, would we? Once Dusty was through with the kid his confidence was shot.

    Shuey’s actually trying to attempt a comeback this year. He had a not-bad spring training.
