The New York Yankees have activated Carlos Beltran from the 15-day disabled list after completing three rehab games with the Tampa Yankees. As a corresponding move, the Yankees have sent Rob Refsnyder to Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre.
With Refsnyder’s demotion, it appears both Brendan Ryan and Stephen Drew‘s jobs are safe. Ryan was activated from the disabled list on Friday and Girardi implied he would use Drew as a utility infielder yesterday. But with Refsnyder back in Triple-A, you wonder if the Yankees will go back to using Drew as the every day second basemen.
Beltran was placed on the disabled list with an oblique injury. He was hitting .260/.309/.430 with seven homers and 30 RBI’s in 66 games this season.
