Just call him Jose Orte-gone-no

By

Via Matt Eddy, the Yankees have released left-hander Jose Ortegano. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, that’s because he not only never pitched for the Yankees at the big league level, but he also never pitched for them in the minors. He started the season on the disabled list after being claimed off waivers at the end of Spring Training, and was designated for assignment last week to make room on the roster for Buddy Carlyle. So long Jose, we hardly knew ye.

    Mike, be honest. You had that pun set up as soon as the Yankees claimed Ortegano.
