Betances to the DL; Horne close to returning


A tip o’ the old hat goes out Eric at Pending Pinstripes on this one: Dellin Betances is headed to the DL with a one of those fosh “upper body injuries.” The injury likely explains his bad outing yesterday, and if it has to do with his elbow it could explain all those walks he’s been issuing (if you’re a fan of K/BB ratios, check that shizz out, wowza). Who knows, maybe the kid’s just got pink eye.

In happier news, Chad Jennings notes that Alan Horne made another rehab appearance in Extended Spring Training today, striking out 7 in 3.2 innings of work. Horne said he felt great, and expects to make his next appearance for one of the affiliated squads. You take the good with the bad, I guess.

    The Yankees signed Ben Broussard to a Minor League deal and assigned him to SWB, according to CJ.

  2. Miles Roche says:


    Do we start getting concerned that Betances is friggin injury proned and we just give up on him?

    Horne, see what he can do and if he’s going to make a run at a starting spot next year
