Yankees call up Steve Garrison; Mitre to the DL


Via Josh Norris and Mike Ashmore, the Yankees have called up left-hander Steve Garrison from Double-A Trenton. This is certainly unexpected. No word on the corresponding move as of yet, but someone has to be hurt (Boone Logan?), no? Garrison had a 4.90 FIP in 46 IP for Trenton this year, though he missed a bunch of time due to a groin injury. You can learn everything you need to know about him here.

Update: Via Ken Davidoff, Garrison is taking the place of Sergio Mitre, who has been placed on the disabled list with some kind of illness. Sounds like a case of good timing for Garrison, because Lance Pendleton, Kevin Whelan, J.C. Romero, and Randy Flores have all thrown quite a bit recently. They took the fresh arm.

    over Flores or Romero? that’s odd.

      Garrison is already on the 40 man roster, as opposed to both those guys, if that counts for anything. If Logan is hurt this would make less sense, since you’d presumably want a guy with major league experience as a LOOGY on the roster and would sacrifice the 40 man spot knowing you’re without Boone for at least X number of days.

    Let us all hope that this is now the end of the experience.

    • Monteroisdinero

      When you’re down by 5 or more in the 8th or 9th, there is only one guy to have on the mound.

        or in a bar fight, as it were…

  • Monteroisdinero

    Logan pull an oblique?

  • Bartolo’s Colon

    maybe cashman has been reading rab and he decided to dfa teixeira

  • Mike

    Mitre is done waxing Girardi’s cars.

      Is that what they’re calling it now?

      • Mike

        OK, he sprained his thumb opening the can of wax.

    Though he’s been terrible this season he looked great last Friday in Trenton. When I saw he was pitching I expected the worst but I was surprised by how strong he looked against a good Reading team.

    No word on the corresponding move as of yet,

    Boone Logan has been traded for Ubaldo Jimenez, straight up.


    • Crime Dog

      I hear Mitre and Tulo were throw ins as well

    • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

      That makes the Logan/Vazquez trade look a lot better in retrospect.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

        Dan O’Dowd’s baseball people loved Boone Logan. They kept saying “Boone Logan! Boone Logan!”

        • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

          How could you give 26 million dollar for Kei Igawa???

          • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

            In this analogy, it would be “How could you give 8 million dollars for Ty Wigginton???”

            • ClayBuchholzLovesLaptops

              Wouldn’t it have to be a Rockies’ international signing that didn’t pan out? The only one I could think of was Chin-hui Tsao but there wasn’t a posting fee involved. Maybe the analogy doesn’t really fit, I guess.

  • Rob

    A mr. Garrison call up?! That’s awesome, but will mr. Hat take a roster spot too?

    • vin

      Can’t wait to see Mr. Slave in pinstripes.

        Mr Slave might replace sal fasano as best mustache ever in a yankee uniform

          Yes that was one episode but chokesondick would have never said it if it wasnt for Garrison

    Mitre to DL per Davidoff

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside the Elder

      I believe he’s got a Grade III sprain of his effectiveness.

      • Crime Dog

        Ollie Perez had a full on tear of his effectiveness last year

      • http://twitter.com/simmonsclass Sam

        He’s out with a case of “sucks”

      • Tampa Yankee

        I lol’d

      • CBean

        is there “for the rest of his baseballing life” DL they could assign him to for that condition?

          Also, enjoyable to see two simultaneous Seinfeld references attached to the same thread.

    • David, Jr.

      This could hurt Joe psychologically.

      Time to get Cody Ransom back.

  • Bronx Byte

    The more experienced J.C. Romero should have got the call. No need for Mitre.

    • pat

      Garrison can go multiple innings id need be.

      • pat


  • CS Yankee

    They seem to be doing well with their development with Nova, Warren, Phelps, Mitchell & the B’s with Noesi being the one exception.

    However, Noesi was used in a decent leverage situation last night and hopefully he gets in those types of games more often since the Meat-tray is DL’d (should be DFA).

    • YankeesJunkie

      I would prefer Noesi and Nova to switch places just because I think Noesi has a better future as a starter. However, Noesi did go 160 IP and has 370 career minor league innings so he been developed for the most part. Hopefully, they give Noesi a shot at the rotation next year since he could be solid in the back of the rotation.

      The Garrison move scares me mainly because he is fairly awful.

  • ItsATarp

    Mitre to the dl… If I was a wizard and I needed to create a patronus, I’d think of this moment.

  • CMP

    Mitre to the DL?

    I hope the DL is a remote village somewhere in Siberia.

    • Klemy

      He would only fight his way out and return. There is no stopping The Experience.

      • CMP

        It’s easier to get rid of a case of Herpes than it is to get rid of Mitre.

    • Monteroisdinero

      It is the hot tub in the east wing of Jeter’s mansion. The only way they could convince Mitre to not come clean on the dirt he has on Girardi. He was given the key to the kingdom-but no Minka.

    Chad Gaudin has been designated for assignment. We are dangerously close to having another reunion on our hands.

    • 28 this year

      I was about to post the same thing.

  • nycsportzfan

    This dude garrison is litteraly dreadful… Mitre is terrible as well, but my god, give Kontos a chance..

  • http://none Favrest

    I’ve never seen but I’m kinda amazed at the 6.26 era. That’s higher than anyone on our current team. Was he hurt?

    • Jetrer

      they just wanted someone who could replicate Mitre’s effectiveness

  • Fin

    This guy should pick up right where Mitre left off…the Yankees wont miss a beat.
