The Yankees tonight added Morgan Ensberg to the 40-man roster. He will make $1.75 million.
He has no options, so this mean that Ensberg is going to make the team. Now that he knows his status, Ensberg said his next move would be to get a new number. He does not want to wear 21. “I can’t wear Paul O’Neill’s number,” he said.
In a shocking move, Carl Pavano was placed on the 60-man disabled list for the fourth consecutive season. That has to be some kind of record. The Yankees also reassigned OF Justin Christian to the minor-league camp.
