The Yankees just sent out a release with their official roster for the ALDS. Here’s the breakdown:
Catchers: Posada, Cervelli
Infielders: Teixeira, Cano, Jeter, Rodriguez, Berkman, Pena
Outfielders: Swisher, Granderson, Gardner, Thames, Kearns, Golson
CC Sabathia, Pettitte, and Hughes are going to be the starters so that leaves A.J. Burnett, Sergio Mitre, and Dustin Moseley as the potential long-men. Although I have to think that Burnett would only be used in an emergency and Mitre could be a middle reliever who goes one or two innings at a time.
The only move I’m really surprised about is Ring because the Twins are a little bit left handed heavy. Ring really pitched terribly in every opportunity so I probably shouldn’t be surprised.
