From MLBTR, we learn that the Pirates have claimed Anthony Claggett off waivers from the Yankees. Claggett was designated for assignment on the 14th in order to free up a roster spot on the 40-man for speedster Freddy Guzman. The Pirates already have Ross Ohlendorf, Daniel McCutchen, and Jeff Karstens pitching for them, [...]
From Chad Jennings:
In a move that seemed to catch every player in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees clubhouse offguard, the New York Yankees called up speedy outfielder Freddy Guzman this morning.

Well, I guess it’s 5 starts after today’s game against Texas.
From George King III (NY Post):
Joba Chamberlain isn’t wild about the innings limit on his right arm and how it has led to long stretches of inactivity in the second half. But he admits his arm is in very good shape.

Much has been made about the Yankees’ lack of a long reliever on the roster this season, and Aceves will certainly fill that role. I think promoting Aceves at this time makes sense given the possibility of [...]
Peter Abraham is reporting that Damaso Marte has been put on the DL and Anthony Claggett has been brought up. I guess some people owe Joe Girardi an apology. So far, the Yankees have lost their #2 starter, their 3B-man and cleanup hitter, their starting RF, and both of their 8th inning guys. It [...]
According to MLBTR, the Tigers released Gary Sheffield today, eating the 14 million dollars he is owed for 2009 rather than have him remain on the roster. This got me to thinking about the trade that the Yankees made with the Tigers after the 2006 season, in which the Yankees sent Sheff to Detroit [...]
