Yankees officially activate Jeter, send Preston Claiborne to Triple-A

By

As expected, the Yankees have officially activated Derek Jeter and his strained calf off the 15-day DL. He is in tonight’s lineup, batting second and playing shortstop. Preston Claiborne was sent to Triple-A Scranton to clear a roster spot. Their season ends one week from today, so Claiborne will be eligible to return to the club next Tuesday, before the ten-day period expires.

    Makes sense sending him down and keeping Joba(sarcasm)

    Remember, every game counts right now

    I haven’t seen a good reason why they didn’t send down Warren instead of Claiborne. Warren has options left, right? Girardi will use Claiborne in a tight winnable game, (say 4-4 after 5, Hughes at 100 pitches) whereas he has shown less willingness to do that with Warren. You have Huff as the long man – who should be ready to go since enough days have passed since the doubleheader. You don’t even have to mess with Joba.

    Now of course the only reason we are complaining about this is because of the effect on this team. This move has no long term implications.

    I just don’t think Cashman wants to release him and show that he was wrong.

    Cashman Failed

    I wonder if Joba has dirt on Cashman.

    Has Hughes cleared waivers? he soooooooooooooo needs to go!
