I guess today wasn’t exactly a great day for me to stay away from the computer to run errands. While I was away, the Yankees announced the Carlos Beltran signing became official. There had been a delay in making the deal official but it was due to Beltran not being in the city to take the physical. Now that it’s cleared up, the Yankees can move on and give Beltran his Yankee press conference.
Speaking of the press conference, the YES Network will air the event tomorrow morning at 11:00 a.m. The number Beltran will wear with the Yankees won’t be a surprise. He’ll wear #36 so if you bought a Kevin Youkilis jersey (without the name on the back) last season–you now own Carlos Beltran.
Roster Move: Since the Beltran signing became official, the Yankees have designated Brett Marshall for assignment.
