The Yankees are bringing long reliever Lance Pendleton back to the big leagues. A source indicated this afternoon that Pendleton will be at Yankee Stadium tonight, giving the Yankees another multi-inning reliever.
No word on a corresponding roster move, but my guess would be that Amauri Sanit is involved.
My guess is that Jennings’ guess of Sanit being sent down is correct. Sanit hasn’t been impressive since being called up and has shown no knowledge of the strike zone whatsoever.
This is Pendleton’s second stint with the Yankees this season. His last one was pretty successful. In four appearances he didn’t allow a run over 6.1 innings.
