Yankees News: Swisher, Aceves, Oppenheimer, A-Rod 8

The Yankees have a tough series coming up this weekend, not only because they are facing the Blue Jays, but because they have Ivan Nova, Javier Vazquez, and Phil Hughes on the mound. This will be a big test to see which will be reliable for the playoffs.

Here are some notes:

  • Nick Swisher is day-to-day after leaving yesterday’s game with stiffness in his knee.
  • Alfredo Aceves suffered a setback yesterday and was scratched from his rehab appearance. This could be it for him this season.
  • Yankees amateur scouting director, Damon Oppenheimer, is a candidate for the Diamondback’s GM opening.
  • Alex Rodriguez has officially dumped his agent Scott Boras.

That’s all for now. I’ll have some more updates later on today so stay tuned.

    Question — Does Montero compete for a position on the major league team next year, or does he at least start at Scranton again? Related to that, is Cervelli useful as trade bait? For instance, I saw that the Dodgers are looking for a starting catcher for next year. Is he good enough to be a starting catcher elsewhere?

    2011 is all you can hope for with Aceves. Hopefully he has surgery soon and doesn't wait. If he has surgery before October then he should have no problem being ready by spring training. Any later than that and he could start eating into next season.
