Ramiro Pena just talked to Donnie Collins after tonight’s Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees game.
Pena confirmed that he has been called back to the big leagues. I have to assume he’ll fly to Dallas in the morning and join the team in time for this weekend series against the Rangers.
It could be that Eduardo Nunez will step into the Eric Chavez role at third base, and Ramiro Pena will step into the Eduardo Nunez role at short. Or maybe the Yankees will stick with Nunez as the No. 2 guy at every infield position, leaving Pena as a defensive replacement for the late innings. Either way, Pena’s role is probably limited.
