Via Chad Jennings, the Yanks have summoned RHP Anthony Claggett from Triple-A Scranton. No word yet on the corresponding roster move, but I doubt Hideki Matsui is hitting the DL. If so, they probably would have just brought David Robertson back since the ten day waiting period on recently demoted players wouldn’t have applied. Claggett was acquired in the Gary Sheffield trade two years ago, and gets his first call to the show the day after Sheff clubs homer number 500. Baseball America says his slider is the best in the organization. I’m assuming the move is just bullpen insurance should Chien-Ming Wang stink up the joint again today.
Fun fact: If CMW threw two straight complete game shutouts, his ERA would still be 5.96.
Update (1:42pm): Juan Miranda was sent down to make room for Claggett.
