Yankees recall Pendleton, option Sanit

The Yankees re-arranged the long relief role in their bullpen on Saturday, recalling right-hander Lance Pendleton from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

New York optioned right-hander Amauri Sanit, who struggled to throw strikes while mopping up the final inning of a 13-2 victory over the Orioles on Thursday in Baltimore.

“We just talked to him about becoming a little more consistent with his arm angles, dropping him down maybe a little bit more, and more consistency in strikes,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Sanit had a 8.53 ERA in three appearances for the Yankees, spanning 6 1/3 innings. This is Pendleton’s second stint in the big leagues, having also been with the team from April 15 to May 11.

He allowed no runs and four hits in 6 1/3 innings over four appearances, including three perfect innings in his big league debut on April 15 against the Rangers.
