With Pettitte officially back, Sardinha is out

Andy Pettitte officially accepted arbitration with the Yankees, which puts him back on the 40-man roster.

To make room, OF Bronson Kiheimahanaomauiakeo Sardinha was designated for assignment. Sardinha appeared in 10 games last season and was on the postseason roster.

The Yankees are running out of mariginal players to take off the roster. At some point soon they’re probably going to dump Carl Pavano. But for insurance reasons, The Rajah of Rehab will probably be signed to a minor-league deal.

I dubbed Pavano the Rajah of Rehab back in 2006. But the Post calls him American Idle, which is better.

Either way, he’ll be out soon.
