Yankees promote 1B Miranda

Here’s a little news: The Yankees have summoned Juan Miranda from Triple-A Scranton. Not sure whether he will arrive in time for tomorrow’s game or not.

Miranda is a 25-year-old Cuban defector who signed with the team in 2006. He hit .287/.384/.449 for Scranton in the regular season with 12 homers and 52 RBI in 99 games. I don’t know that anybody considers him the first baseman of the future but maybe he’ll get a few at-bats down the stretch.

The only other healthy 40-man roster players not in the majors are Ian Kennedy, Shelley Duncan, Chase Wright, Jeff Marquez and Justin Christian.

No word on whether any of those guys will be called up. Shelley should be in case any kids in Boston need a ball signed.
