Yankees Shuffle Their 40-Man Roster

The Yankees made a couple minor roster moves today when they reinstated infielder Reegie Corona to Triple-A and reinstated Joba Chamberlain and outfielder Justin Maxwell from the 60-day DL, according to Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News.

What this means is that Corona is now off the 40-man roster and can be claimed by any team in baseball. Not that it matters much to the Yankees as he has a weak bat and missed all of the 2011 season with a shoulder injury and has since been passed by both Eduardo Nunez and Ramiro Pena as a major league option.

Joba and Maxwell are now back on the 40-man roster which is significant for Maxwell as it is a sign that the Yankees have him in their plans for 2012. Probably just as another option behind Chris Dickerson.

Pedro Feliciano, Damaso Marte, Sergio Mitre, and Colin Curtis are still on the 60-day DL. It’s probably just a matter of time before Marte and Mitre are released. It’s more of just a formality really.

The 40-man roster is currently at 39 players.

    And why add Deleon, Braboy, Heredia, and Perez? Wouldnt you want to add Phelps, Warren, Banuelos, and Adams (if healthy)? I'd even consider moving Golson off and adding Parraz. Does anyone know why Vazquez isnt considered for a DH against lefty pitching? He seems to crush the ball (along with strike out, but so does Granderson).
