Greetings from Tropicana Field
The Yankees have not made a roster move today to call up an outfielder, believing they can get through another day and wanting to keep an extra arm in their tired bullpen.
But there are some rumblings filtering through the Internet that Sergio Mitre’s spot on the pitching staff might not be safe: there is a report that states the Yankees and Reds are discussing a trade that would bring former Red Sox Bronson Arroyo to New York.
Seems the Bombers are also kicking the tires with the Mariners on Jarrod Washburn (again), and have been linked to scouting Cliff Lee and Ian Snell, among others. So, yes, if the Yankees do wind up making a move, it looks like it’s going to be for a pitcher.
More in a bit.
