Yankees designate Ramiro Pena for assignment, call up six


Via Peter Botte, the Yankees have designated Ramiro Pena for assignment to clear room on the 40-man roster for Chris Dickerson. Unlike the first time he was designated, he will now need to be traded, released, or passed through waivers within ten days. Click here for an explanation of that weirdness.

Along with Dickerson, the Yankees have also officially recalled Frankie Cervelli, Eduardo Nunez, Cory Wade, Adam Warren, and Justin Thomas as rosters expand today.

  1. The Guns of Navarone says:

    Nunez at DH today. That just makes me so sad for some reason.

  2. While I understand Pena, I still think moving Betances to the 60D-DL would have been the easiest thing.

  3. draddE says:

    Hopefully the kids can give us a spark because the team is lifeless right now. No HRs in almost 3 games until Grandy hit that one in the 9th. I would play Frankie at C, Nunez at 3rd or DH.

      cervelli is not a kid

      • M-Three says:

        Cervelli shouldn’t have been called-up, it should’ve been Romine. Romine has the potential to be our future catcher and be a quality MLB player. Hopefully this last month makes the Yanks realize that Cervelli is a scrub and should be non-tendered this offseason.

  4. Tim says:

    No real impact players at all in that group except maybe Nunez on the basepaths. When will the Yankees have some impact playes to bring up from AAA? Next year with Tyler Austin? Or 2014 with Sanchez and Williams?

    At this point Lowe has proven that he’s still a Red Sox at heart…a mole destined to derail the Yankee season in any way he can…Of course they’re trying to do a pretty good job of it themselves. I still don’t understand why it took this long for the Yankees to bring up Dickerson…C’mon now…Ichiro, Steve Pearce. Ichiro fades into nothing when runners are on, and who the fuck was Steve Pearce to begin with. Dickerson must’ve done something to seriously piss someone off in management to be ignored this way.

    • Laz says:

      Yea, Lowe would really play himself out of more money by blowing it for the yankees so the Sox can sneak into the postseason.

  6. Defensive Indifference says:

    Fist pump.

    (*Helmet flies off in the process. Then makes an error bending over to pick it up.*)

  7. Loew looks like he’s done.

  8. smurfy says:

    Farewell, Ramiro. Thanks for all the great glovework. You swung a good bat, sorry you never could figure it out to make much contact.

    May you get another try with another team. Hope you’ve been saving your money.

  9. Stephen says:

    No Casey McGehee? Is he legitimately going to stay in Charleston or did I miss something?
