Brackman joins the list of September call-ups, Pendleton DFA’d


In addition to George Kontos, Ramiro Pena, Hector Noesi, and Greg Golson, Andrew Brackman joined the Yankees as a September call-up today. This isn’t terribly surprising; he finished the Triple-A season well and is already on the 40-man roster, so there was little reason not to call him up. Remember, Brackman was on the roster last September, he just didn’t pitch at all. Still no update on Dellin Betances though, who apparently may also get the call this month.

In an unfortunate bit of news, Lance Pendleton was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Kontos. That’s a shame, a damn shame. I’ll miss you, Pants Lendleton.

Update: Via Marc Carig, Ryan Pope cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minors. He was designated for assignment last week to make room on the roster for either Jesus Montero or Scott Proctor, take your pick.

    Time for a new Meme.

    But in other more important news , Kontos deserved a 40 man roster spot after his strong year in Triple A this year.

  6. Cris Pengiuci says:

    For shame! No Pants to be seen on the Yankees!

  7. Xstar7 says:

    The Yankees just got depantsed.

  8. Pat D says:

    All this talk about pants reminds me of something I saw years ago: 25 Star Wars lines improved by substituting the word “pants.”

    Now I can’t remember all of them, but here were some of the good ‘uns:

    “That blast came from those pants! That thing’s operational!”

    “You are unwise to lower your pants!”

    “You came in those pants? You’re braver than I thought.”

    “A tremor in the pants. The last time I felt it was in the presence of my old master.”

  9. LiterallyFigurative says:

    I see Paris. I see France. I see the Yanks DFA’d Pants.

    Glad to see Brackman up. Some mop up innings for the young arms gets the big pen arms some rest, while giving the kids a taste of the show.

  10. Evan3457 says:

    Goodbye, Pants. We hardly knew ‘ye. (SFW)

  11. Melky says:

    Pope removed for Jesus. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

  12. Jorge says:

    I knew this day would come. It doesn’t make it any easier, though. Goodbye, sweet Pants.

  13. Tom Zig says:

    Pants Lendleton = Milton from Office Space?

  14. Will says:

    begin sarcasm/

    So let’s say the Yanks end up sending a B squad to Baltimore on Thursday….





    Have Noesi start, followed by Kontos, Brackman, Laffey, Proctor.

    Lineup could look like this:

    CF Golson
    SS Nunez
    1B Posada
    LF Jones
    DH Montero
    3B Chavez
    C Cervelli
    RF Dickerson
    2B Pena

    Laird can play 1B/3B/LF, both Montero and Posada can be the backup catchers!

    \end sarcasm

    Why was Pants DFA’d when Brackman is already on the 40-man?
