RHP Matt DeSalvo: Optioned to AAA Scranton.
LHP Sean Henn: Recalled from AAA Scranton
C Wil Nieves: Designated for assignment
Jose Molina is in Minnesota and the Yankees are trying to arrange for him to fly to New York tomorrow morning. They are waiting to DFA Nieves to make sure Molina arrives.
Cashman said the opportunity to upgrade to a more experienced player was something he could not pass up. Molina is a .238 career hitter but he has playoff experience and a strong throwing arm.
Cashman called the pace of trade talks across the game “glacially slow” and said he did not expect the Yankees to make a major move. That, of course, could change at any second.
