Here are some minor notes following yesterday’s 4-3 win over the Seattle Mariners last night.
— Carlos Beltran completed his third rehab game last night, going 0-for-2 with a walk and Beltran is expected to leave Tampa sometime this morning. But Joe Girardi told the media last night that Beltran won’t be in the lineup this afternoon.
“I heard that he came out OK,” Girardi said following the game. “I haven’t had a chance to talk about what we’re going to do. It would be pretty hard to put him in the lineup.”
— The Yankees have also made a minor move, adding Branden Pinder to the roster. It’s rumored Bryan Mitchell was optioned to Triple-A Scranton as the corresponding move but the Yankees have yet to confirm. I’ll update this portion as soon as the Yankees officially announce the corresponding move.
Update: The Yankees have confirmed Bryan Mitchell has been sent down to Triple-A Scranton to make room for Pinder. Joe Girardi wants Mitchell to be stretched out and he wasn’t getting much work in at the Major League level.
