The Daily Yankeeland - 5/29

Views from the Facade - 5/29

The Yankees begin a four game series tonight in Cleveland. Jorge Posada is expected to be activated before this evening’s game. The question now is, who will be removed from the 25-man roster? The best move would be to designate Angel Berroa for assignment and carry three catchers for a few days or at least until the Yankees are satisfied that Posada is really good to go. Then the Yankees could either send Francisco Cervelli to Scranton to play ever day or keep him as Posada’s back up and send Kevin Cash back down.

Once the Yankees go with two catchers they can recall another bat, perhaps Juan Miranda or John Rodriguez. A lot will also depend on how quickly Melky Cabrera rebounds from his banged up shoulder. Right now, the Melkman is available for pinch-hitting duties.

Former Yankee David Dellucci was DFA’ed by the Indians earlier today.

Probable Pitchers for the Series

Friday: Andy Pettitte (4-1, 4.30) vs. Cliff Lee (2-5, 3.04)
Saturday: CC Sabathia (4-4, 3.42) vs. Fausto Carmona (2-4, 6.42)
Sunday: Phil Hughes (3-2, 5.16) vs. Carl Pavano (5-4, 5.50)
Monday: Joba Chamberlain (2-1, 3.97) vs. Jeremy Sowers (1-2, 7.71)

CC Sabathia, Alex Rodriguez
and Mariano Rivera were among those in attendance at last night’s Cleveland Cavaliers-Orlando Magic NBA playoff game.

Tino Martinez and Lee Mazzilli will represent the Yankees at this year’s amateur draft. When did Mazzilli stop working for SNY?

Jesus Montero slugged a pair of home runs for Tampa yesterday and could be headed to Double-A ball in Trenton very soon.
