Game 141: Rebound

The Yankees have called up right-hander Matt Daley from Triple-A Scranton, the team announced. To make room on the 40-man roster, Corban Joseph was called up and placed on the 60-day DL. His season ended in May due to a shoulder problem. The move was made to add bullpen depth for the rest of the season and tonight’s game in particular.

Daley, 31, missed most of 2011 and all of 2012 following shoulder surgery. The Queens native had a 2.02 ERA and ~1.65 FIP in 53.1 relief innings across three minor league levels while coming back from the injury this year. He spent parts of three seasons in the big leagues with the Rockies, pitching to a 4.71 ERA and 3.86 FIP in 80.1 total innings from 2009-2011. Daley is a soft-tosser in the Cory Wade mold, not a guy who will come in and blow people away. He’s been in the organization for two years now and there’s a chance he could factor into the 2014 bullpen plans.
