No second lefty for division series

Our good friend David Waldstein is reporting that Raul Valdes will not be on the roster for the division series. He’ll instead go down to Tampa to stay loose in case the Yankees want him in a later round. My guess is the Yankees would have carried him if they were playing Texas.

No Valdes eliminates the possibility of a second lefty in the Yankees bullpen, because not only is Aaron Laffey not going to make the roster, he no longer has a locker in the Yankees clubhouse.

Notable players who do still have a full locker: Valdes, Chris Dickerson, Austin Romine, Francisco Cervelli, Luis Ayala and Hector Noesi.

Notable players who do not still have a full locker: Laffey, Greg Golson, Ramiro Pena, Brandon Laird, Dellin Betances, George Kontos, Andrew Brackman and Scott Proctor.
