Claggett on the way

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Aug 05, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Anthony Claggett is headed to Toronto and will join the Yankees today. He was 4-6 with a 3.02 ERA in 32 games at Scranton. Claggett was on the 25-man roster on April 18 and allowed eight runs on nine hits in 1.2 innings against Cleveland.

The Yankees don’t much trust Sergio Mitre (shocking, I know) and want Claggett here to suck up innings rather than wear out the bullpen ahead of the Boston series. Makes sense.

The scenario could be Cody Ransom gets DFA’d, Claggett is here for a day or two and at some point Ramiro Pena rejoins the team. We’ll find out soon enough.
