I keep reading that General Joe wants a long reliever and a lefty in two of his three bullpen spots after Mo, Joba, Farnsworth and Hawkins.
Pete Caldera has an interesting feature today on who’s fighting for what spot. After reading it, I think this is how the Yankees bullpen will shape up this spring:
Jeff Karstens or Darrell Rasner
And, Bruney, Ohlendorf, Veras, Ramirez and Albaladejo will start the year at Triple-A. It’s just a hunch, but, I think Joe’s going to want to start the year with the experienced guys coming out of the pen.
