Joel Sherman is reporting that Juan Miranda is being called up from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to give the Yankees a lefty bat. Obviously he won’t be starting ahead of Mark Teixeira at first base, so I have to assume the Yankees see Miranda as a designated hitter against right-handed pitchers.
Of course, it might not matter today. Right now it’s pouring outside my hotel window in Detroit.
As for a move to make room for Miranda, Boone Logan and Kevin Russo would seem to be the most logical candidates for an option back to Triple-A.
