Yankees option Casey McGehee to Low-A Charleston


To make room on the 25-man roster for the recently-acquired Steve Pearce, the Yankees have optioned Casey McGehee all the way down to Low-A Charleston. The River Dogs have already been eliminated from postseason contention, so McGehee can return to the big leagues when their regular season ends next Monday rather than wait the full ten days. I thought they would make a similar move with David Phelps since he just started last night and Thursday’s off-day would allow them to shuffle the rotation, but they opted to play with a short bench instead. Weird.

    Aren’t he and Pearce basically the same crappy player?

  2. Robinson Tilapia says:

    The Bridge to Qualls apparently ends at Sam Pearce.

  3. Mark says:

    Does he actually have to go down there and report, or is this a paper move, and he just sits out a week?

    Now batting cleanup for the New York Yankees…..Sam Pearce! LOL! You thought the offense was bad before. I think Martin is batting 5th. Our only saving grace is Ricky Romero has sucked this year.

    But I bet you could start a pretty good softball team with them

  10. Ken says:

    All those folks who were so happy to see Ramiro Pena go down must be weeping now. Pena could outhit McGeHee anyday!

  11. Hall and Nokes says:

    Rajai Davis ruined him.

  12. Edmond says:

    Read an article about Cashman boasting how good he is at predicting talent, how he wasn’t surprised about what happened to Melky and Colon, and then I read this!!!! What does he think? Does he get drunk or hang out with stalkers, when making these decisions? I am still po’d at him about Pineda bust
