Chad Jennings reports that the Yankees have sent Sidney Ponson to Trenton.
Other than costing the Thunder a few cents to update their “Road To The Majors” plaque on the concourse, there’s little significant impact to be had here.
Ponson is expected to start one of the two games in the Yankee-Shea doubleheader at the big league level on Friday, and will likely never throw a pitch for the Thunder.
The only possible scenario in which that would happen is if the Yankees instead chose to call-up Jeff Karstens for the start, which in all honesty would probably be the better choice considering Karstens 40-man roster status and hot streak in Triple-A.
