Shawn Kelley returns to Yankees bullpen

Shawn Kelley will return to the Yankees bullpen tonight. Kelley has not pitched in a big league game since May 6 due to a lumbar spine strain, but has re-joined the Yankees in Seattle and has been activated from the disabled list.

In a corresponding roster move, the Yankees optioned right-hander Matt Daley to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Also prior to tonight’s game, the Yankees acquired left-hander David Huff from the San Francisco Giants in exchange for cash considerations. Huff, a familiar face who was with the Yanks last year, will be used as a multi-inning reliever. Left-hander Wade LeBlanc was designated for assignment.

Yanks definitely need more hitters. This lineup only has 1 true power hitter that pitchers can come to being afraid of in Tex, the rest of the lineup is made up of old guys who are past their prime who are nothing more than temporary quick fixes, and injury prone. The numbers definitely back this fact up as Yankees rank:

14th in BA .254
15th in hits 572
20th in Runs 262
21st in HR’s 53
22nd in RBI’s 245
18th in BB’s 191
17th in OBP .317
19th in SLG % .381
20th in OPS .697

Is it any wonder why this offense is at best inconsistent at best and mediocre at worst? This team won’t win anything with mediocre numbers like that. Priority come trade deadline will be for more offense. With the way things are going this team could most likely be sellers. Wouldn’t mind seeing guys like Phelps, Warren and Gardner on the trade block.

Sorry Koto, I know you hate him but you won’t see Gardner traded. Outfield is thin as it is and Beltran & Soriano are not even average defensively. Won’t happen.

Tanaka 2 more first half wins and we won’t be seeing you anymore. Glad you make that guarantee. Tanak has a high homerun total but he’s exceeded your expectation Dakota.

You actually almost, came close to posting a somewhat halfway,intelligently decent post for the very first time piñata girl. Almost, that is. Try using some common sense before you post anything. Who is to say that including Gardner in a trade package wouldn’t get this team a better OF’er than this team already has. Beltran, and Soriano area mediocre defensively, but they are better offensively, while Gardner is average offensively but very good defensively, in other words all three are one dimensional players, but at least Gardner has the most value and as we have already seen would draw the most interest. If it means getting a player who could improve the OF down the road, then pull the trigger on the deal for a more complete player. Gardner doesn’t make this a better team, and this team didn’t really miss him when he went down for most of the season.

Again think before you post, or at least start wearing a helmet to those kids parties, those blows to your head are starting to effect your thought process piñata girl.

Asia, they will not be trading Gardner, get over it, you lost Melky years ago. They have turned down multiple trades for Gardner already. Your boy Phelps rocked your A’s last night ha ha hah!

You still sound bitter about your #1 girlfriend going down in flames. Anyone with any amount of intelligence, I guess that leaves you out, could see that coming.

Maybe you should go rock Granderson’s world at his place. LMFAO!!!!

Can you translate Asia? I don’t understand your posts or what they have to do with this blog.

I respectful disagree Ron. It may be because of the starting pitching wearing on them but the bullpen is s*it also. They keep bringing up Double A guys. I don’t have a number but they have used a lot of bullpen guys this year.

Yanks don’t need hitting. If the team was hitting like the back of their baseball cards say we would be in 1st place. This group of misfits need to sack up and play like men. Right now the whole league is laughing at them and walking all over em like they are a AAA team. Everybody wants to play for a winner. Someone needs to tell these fools that you can’t play on a winning team unless you walk, talk, act, and PLAY like your a winner. Shake that line up up Joe. Do’t give anybody something they don’t deserve.

Yanks need hitting. Yanks need starting pitchers. Bullpen is NOT the problem . All that happens is Cashman continues to reign unchecked.
