Two minor-league moves of note:
Chad Jennings reports that Alan Horne is close to being able to return to the Scranton rotation. He has been out with a minor arm injury.
And George King of the Post had a note today that Dan McCutchen will be promoted to Scranton.
Keeping in mind that I’m half awake, here’s a list of minor-league pitchers who could help the Yankees this summer:
J.B. Cox (AAA)
Mark Melancon (AA)
Dan McCutchen (AAA)
Alan Horne (AAA)
David Robertson (AAA)
Steven White (AAA)
Chase Wright (AA)
Dan Giese (AAA)
Obviously all of these guys won’t be in the majors. But depending on need, you could see some of them. Robertson is an intriguing player who could be valuable as a trade chip. Heard some talk the other day that Arizona likes him.
If the Yankees make some kind of move in July, Brian Cashman has some pieces to put out there.
