Just a day after the Masahiro Tanaka news, the Yankees are making some roster changes. Here were the moves that occured within the last hour.

Jeff Francis: Let’s start with the trade the Yankees made. The Yankees acquired Jeff Francis and cash considerations from the Oakland Athletics for a PTBNL. Francis was 0-1 with a 6.08 ERA in 13.1 innings for the A’s.

Matt Daley: The Yankees have called up Matt Daley from Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre to give the bullpen some depth. As a corresponding move, the Yankees have designated Jim Miller for assignment, just one day after he gave up five runs on six hits in relief resulting in a 9-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians.

    this is really a non-move…Cashman's looking for that needle in the haystack…can't blame him but this is a nothing move…does he give the bullpen some needed rest? maybe that is the only hope here…mop up man…

    Francis had started games for Reds (AAA and MLB) until he was traded to Oakland where he had yet to start a single start. I am pretty sure he will start this Sunday and rest of the season.

    McCarthy and Francis need a reversal of misfortune to help Yankees.

      I thought Francis could be a starter too…but Girardi said he's not stretched out. If he wants to make the rotation, he has to be able to throw more than 30-40 pitches.
