Golson and Huffman in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre lineup

Just checked with some people who are with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees in Norfolk.

As of right now , the two Triple-A outfielders currently on the 40-man roster — center fielder Greg Golson and corner outfielder Chad Huffman — are both in the lineup. That’s with batting practice just ending.

If that changes, that would seem to be a good indication of which direction the Yankees are leaning should Curtis Granderson indeed end up on the disabled list.

UPDATE, 6:28 p.m.: Sorry. Just listened to the Girardi audio. Sounds like they could call-up a pitcher for the time being. That seems to be a possibility, anyway. Get a reliever for a few days to help the short-handed bullpen, then maybe call-up an outfielder to fill Granderson’s spot after a few days.

UPDATE, 6:39 p.m.: The top relievers in Scranton have been Jonathan Albaladejo, Royce Ring and Mark Melancon. For whatever it’s worth: Albaladejo and Ring pitched yesterday. Melancon did not.
