Here are a few Yankees roster moves before tonight’s series opener against the Oakland Athletics.
1) Mark Teixeira is back in the Yankees lineup after missing the Twins and Mariners series with a sore wrist. He’s batting cleanup and will be the first basemen.
3) The Yankees have claimed LHP Wade LeBlanc off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and as a corresponding move, the Yankees have placed Michael Pineda on the 60-day disabled list. The disabled list is retroactive, meaning it won’t have much effect on when Pineda returns.
