Ivan Nova is on his way to throw a bullpen and expects to start Saturday, meanwhile, the Yankees just sent this announcement…

The Yankees have acquired INF Matt Antonelli off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles.

Antonelli, 27, has appeared in 29 games with Triple-A Norfolk this season, batting .204 (19-for-93) with four doubles, one home run, seven RBI and 19 walks. He has appeared in games at first base, second base, third base, shortstop and left field. Selected by San Diego in the first round (17th overall) in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, he saw his lone Major League action with the Padres in 2008, batting .193 (11-for-57) with six runs, two doubles, one home run and three RBI in 21 games as a September call-up.

Antonelli is anticipated to join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this weekend. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees transferred LHP Cesar Cabral (left elbow fracture) to the 60-day disabled list.
