Yankees activate Curtis Granderson, and down Melky Mesa


As expected, the Yankees have activated Curtis Granderson off the 60-day DL in time for tonight’s game. He is in the lineup, batting fifth and playing left field. Melky Mesa was sent to Triple-A Scranton to clear a spot on the 25-man roster, and Thomas Neal was designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

    Well, closest thing to a major league lineup we will have.

  2. Robinson Tilapia says:

    Welcome back, King Curtis.

    Time to prove the non-believers wrong.

  3. Dalek Jeter says:

    We have like…6 major leaguers in the line up tonight, huh?

    A-ROD home run in Trenton
    Up your ass Bud

  5. Now Batting says:

    I hope he’s wearing body armor.

  6. Brad says:

    Does this mean I no longer have to see Neal’s asinine tweets in the sidebar here anymore?

      Do you mean the sidebar on Lohud? There are no tweets in the sidebar here (at least not that show up for me).

      But other than that, I know what you mean. Like that one he puts up EVERY single morning. That’s part of why I’m not on twitter.

  7. W.B. Mason Williams says:

    Here’s hoping for Neal to revive his stock.
