The Yankees have officially announced their Brian Roberts signing, adding him to the roster in place of Alex Rodriguez who’s now on the restricted list. Despite the obvious injury concern, Joe Girardi has said he expects Roberts to play a lot next season.
“I think he can help us a lot,” Girardi said. “I think it’s something, I’ll sit down and have a conversation and try to get a feel what he thinks the optimal level of games that he’s going to play, but we’d like to play him pretty often.”
With a couple of player moves now official, and the Rodriguez decision announced, let’s do a chat tomorrow. We’ll chat right here on the blog at noon on Wednesday. Hope you can stop by for a while. See you then!
