Here’s a little breaking news via Chad Jennings:

The Yankees have promoted OF Freddy Guzman to the majors. RHP Anthony Claggett was DFA’d to make room for him on the 40-man roster.

Guzman has played only 37 games in the majors, none since an eight-game cameo with Texas in 2007. He was 19 of 89 in those games but stole 22 bases. The Yankees appear to be considering him for a postseason roster spot as a pinch runner. In theory, they could go with one less pitcher in the first round and keep Guzman.

Guzman started this season in the Red Sox organization and bounced around before the Yankees acquired him from Baltimore on Aug. 31.

Also, Ian Kennedy will be pitching for Scranton on Wednesday in the International League playoffs. He’s expected to start and go 3-4 innings. Good step on the road back for Ian.
