Bryan Mitchell optioned

The Yankees have optioned Bryan Mitchell to Double-A. No corresponding move has been made yet. The Yankees could move Ivan Nova to the 60-day DL today if he and the team doctors decide he needs Tommy John surgery. That would create a 40-man roster spot for the club.

Postgame notes: “That was a moment, right there”

Dean Anna is the backup to Derek Jeter. He’s the guy who was picked to pitch in a blowout yesterday, and he was not supposed to be in the lineup today. The Rays would obviously rather pitch to him with the bases loaded than face Jacoby Ellsbury with runners at the corners. “I kind of […]The post Postgame notes: “That was a moment, right there” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Long walk to glory for Anna

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- If you didn't know better, you might be tempted to believe Joe Maddon thought Dean Anna really was a pitcher. After all, the last time Maddon saw him, Anna was inducing David DeJesus to pop up a 55-mph nothingball to end the eighth inning of Saturday night's 16-1 Rays blowout of the Yankees. So now, here was the same guy, all (a listed) 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds of him, in the on-deck circle as Jacoby Ellsbury stepped into the batter's box with runners at first and third and two outs in the top of the 12th inning of a 1-1 game.

Postgame notes: Trapped at the Trop

St. PETERSBURG -- Brett Gardner doesn't hit many home runs, but when the final tally on his career is added up, it will show one fewer home run than he should have had. Gardner was victimized twice in the fourth inning of Sunday's 5-1 Yankees win over the Tampa Bay Rays, first by the acting job of right-fielder Wil Myers, who pretended he caught Gardner's drive to the top of the wall when he really trapped it on a carom, and again by first-base umpire Rob Drake, who called Gardner out when he should have treated the play as a live ball, which is what it was.

Rapid Reaction: Yankees 5, Rays 1 (12 innings)

St. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Yankees can take this one and run with it, a marathon of a game decided after 4-1/2 hours by a walk. After blowing a lead on Friday, and getting blown out on Saturday, the Yankees will take it heading into a three-game series at Fenway with the Red Sox. They overcame three errors, some questionable managerial strategy, at least one head-scratching call by the umpires, and five-inning hitting drought to outlast the Rays, 5-1, in this Easter Sunday Eggstravaganza.

Dealin' Dean Anna mops up

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Dean Anna is a shortstop by trade and a ballplayer by nature, but he hadn't thrown a pitch, he figured, since he was an 11-year-old Little Leaguer back in Harvey, Ill. So when New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi told him Saturday night that he was his eighth-inning guy, Anna wasn't quite sure what to think. Or to feel. Anna knew it wasn't an opportunity, or an honor, since the Yankees were in the midst of being crushed, 16-1, by the Tampa Bay Rays -- although the score was a mere 14-1 when Anna got the call.
