Yankees News: Roster Decisions


The ALDS starts tonight as the Yankees go to Minnesota to take on the Twins at 8:37. CC Sabathia gets the ball as he takes on fellow lefty Francisco Liriano in game one.

Here are some notes:

That’s all the news catching us up on the roster decisions. I think it is straight forward. Guys like Nova, Ring, and Gaudin were almost expected to make the roster, but all were left off because they just pitched terribly.

Nunez could have made it over Pena, but in reality these guys are only really going to come in for defense late in games and Pena is the better defender and has more experience at different positions. That’s the bottom line. When you look at it that way there wasn’t much of a choice.
