The Yankees are prepared to add a releiver before tonight’s game, but they’re watching the weather to make sure the game is going to be played before they commit to a call-up.
A source has indicated that Mark Melancon is the most likely addition. Melancon was with the Yankees briefly this season, and he hasn’t allowed a run in his past 5.2 innings with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. In that time he’s struck out 13, walked two and allowed four hits.
Boone Logan could be optioned to make room on the roster, but I’ve heard the Yankees might send Greg Golson down in order to keep the extra reliever.
