Via Newsday –
The Yankees on Monday sent pitcher Shane Greene to Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes-Barre to reduce their mound staff to 12. With Cervelli going on the DL, that means two players will be called up Tuesday, including a catcher. The Yankees are expected to call up John Ryan Murphy instead of Austin Romine, who spent a few days with the club last week.
For the infield spot, the Yankees could add former Oakland and Detroit player Scott Sizemore. The 29-year-old played two games in the majors in the previous two seasons because of injuries, but he is batting .344 in 10 games for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Or the Yankees could add corner infielder / outfielder Russ Canzler. The 28-year-old, who has appeared in the majors with Tampa Bay and Cleveland, is batting .276 in nine games at Triple-A.
Infielder Corban Joseph, who appeared in two games for the Yankees last season, is another possibility. The 25-year-old is hitting .217 in seven Triple-A games.
None of those players is on the 40-man roster. The Yankees could create room by moving infielder Brendan Ryan (back) to the 60-day DL.
And, people thought that Slim Pickens died in 1983.
