Now he and pitcher Josh Towers were removed from the Yankees 40-man roster and are now free agents,  according to Chad Jennings of the Journal ...

Thoughts on World Series Roster Moves

Brian Bruney

As I suggested yesterday, Eric Hinske was added to the Yankees World Series roster to be an extra bat off of the bench. He is taking the spot of the fast Freddy Guzman who really serves no purpose on the Yankees. Frankly, I’ll be surprised if Freddy Guzman ever plays a meaningful game for the ...

Guzman and Kennedy On The Move

According to Peter Abraham of the Journal News, the Yankees have promoted outfielder Freddy Guzman to the majors and assigned pitcher Ian Kennedy to triple-A Scranton. In order to make room for Guzman on the 40-man roster the Yankees have designated Anthony Claggett for assignment and he’ll now have to clear waivers to remain under the ...
