Yankees release Carlos Silva

Game 81: Bart's Back
Open Thread: Yankee Stadium vs. CitiField

Via Donnie Collins, the Yankees have released Carlos Silva. Joel Sherman says it’s because he was having shoulder trouble. The 32-year-old was brought aboard on a minor league contract this spring after being released by the Cubs to provide some pitching depth when the Yankees needed it the most. He struck out 28 and walked six in 36 minor league innings, getting a ground ball 50% of the time.

      I have no idea what happened. Hit publish and the text was gone.

    Get ready for “Red Sox bolster rotation with Silva”

      what ever happened to shitwood? Instead theyre using andrew miller, and i swear his name has that perfect politician ring to it

    • David

      With future HOF candidate, and probable CY Young award winner Carlos Silva, now pitching for the Red Sox!!!

    Good Riddance scrub. Hope Mitre isn’t far behind.

    • Mickey Scheister

      Amen. Meatray is awful.

    next stop for Carlos Silva: Boston. He’ll join Kevin Millwood and their AAA-rotation of doom :D

    • Jorge

      And they’ll be a commenter here complaining as to why the Yanks don’t have the same pitching depth as the Red Sox because they’ve got such stalwarts like Millwood and Silva.

    I wonder if the Cubs would consider parting with Garza?? We know he can pitch in the East. He’s just wasting his time on that team.

      No place for him on this team right now. I’d rather have Nova, and it will cost too much in terms of prospects.

    I’m sorry for Silva that he has a bum shoulder, but if anyone really thought he was going to be able to help the Yankees they haven’t followed his career for a while.
