Yankees demote Pendleton, outright Carlyle, release Texeira

Game 85: Hughes Returns

Via Bryan Hoch, the Yankees sent Pants Lendleton to Triple-A Scranton to make room on the 25-man active for Hughes. There’s still no word about the 40-man roster move though, they have to get Phil off the 60-day disabled list somehow. In other news, Buddy Carlyle has been outrighted to Triple-A Scranton. That means he cleared waivers and agreed to go to the minors after being designated for assignment last week.

Update: Kanekoa Texeira has been released to make room on the 40-man, according to Hoch. That was pretty predictable.

    “That was pretty predictable.”

    How? His ERA was only slightly over 20.

    Am I the only one who did a double take and thought for a fleeting instant that Cashman decided the best course of action was to eat the remainder of Mark Teixiera’s contract for some reason? That was a scary two seconds.

    • Claudell

      I’m with you JAG. Definitely did a double take when I first saw that headline!

      “Eh, who needs all these home runs?”
