Here’s a press release the Yankees sent out today:
With todayâ€™s day off for the Yankees, here is a minor league update on Wilson Betemitâ€™s rehab â€¦
The Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees defeated the Durham Bulls, 9-5, in Sundayâ€™s game. Wilson Betemit was 1-for-3 with a double and 2BB, playing 1B. Collectively, he is 5-for-13 (.385) with 3R, 4 doubles, 2 RBI and 3 BB in four games played with Scranton/WB (2-3B, 1-1B, 1-DH), batting leadoff.
Suffice it to say, there hasn’t been much interest in Betemit’s rehab. There’s little doubt they will activate him at some point. But isn’t Alberto Gonzalez a more useful player?
