Yankees Trade Juan Miranda to DBacks for RHP Scott Allen

The Yankees traded first baseman/DH Juan Miranda to the Arizona Diamondbacks for pitcher Scottie Allen according to the Yankees PR Department. This was probably the minor deal Brian Cashman was talking about earlier in the week, not the Rafael DePaula move. Miranda was signed out of Cuba in 2006 and despite putting up decent numbers ...

Notes from Cashman: Nova to the Rotation, Joba to the bullpen, Aceves, and More

No, Brian Cashman and I don't pass notes to each other the way the girls in school used to. This is just a summary of the press conference he gave yesterday after the first day of the GM meetings in Florida.  Obviously we owe Chad Jennings of the Journal News credit for most of the ...

Activate Posada -> Send Russo Down -> DFA Moeller -> Call Up Curtis

The Yankees catcher Jorge Posada is probably coming off the DL today, but there is no clear choice of whom the Yankees will send down to the minors when they activate him. It could be back-up catcher Chad Moeller, but because of the nature of Posada's injury and the position he plays that's probably not a ...

Now Juan Miranda Gets Called Up

Yankees minor league first baseman Juan Miranda would probably be in the major leagues if he were on at least 15 other teams around baseball, but he's a Yankee and stuck behind Mark Teixeira. It did make for interesting news the other day when he was almost called up only to find out that it ...
