Yankees activate Austin Romine off DL, option him to Triple-A


Just a procedural note, but the Yankees have activated catcher Austin Romine off the 60-day DL and optioned him to Triple-A Empire State according to Donnie Collins. His 30-day rehab window had expired after missing the first half of the season with a back problem. The 40-man roster is now full, but the Yankees still have eight players on the 60-day DL.

    If they need another roster spot they probably drop pena or laird from 40 man. Even if another team picks them up it’s no loss.

    Even after the activation of Romine, looks like the roster is at 39. Either way, you figure Feliciano and Pettitte will be activated sometime in mid-September. Pena is already off the 40 man roster so someone else will need to come off.
