Peter Abraham is reporting that the Yankees have sent Shelley Duncan to Triple-A Scranton to make room for Alberto Gonzalez. Unless Jason Brown is deactivated again (and considering Posada isn’t getting DL’d, and carrying three catchers on the active roster makes no sense, that seems likely) there could be a trickle-down effect here in Trenton.
I’ll be at Waterfront Park tomorrow afternoon, and will have the latest if there are any corresponding moves.
Odd situation for the big league club today, too. Ian Kennedy gets scratched from his start because it was raining and they didn’t want to waste him — according to Pete, anyway — so Brian Bruney starts. But Kennedy comes in the game to pitch the 7th, 8th and 9th.
So they waste him anyway. Strange.
The gents over at River Ave. Blues have their take on this here.
Yankees lost, 4-0…TO THE ROYALS. Alberto Gonzalez went 1-for-3 in his season debut.
