Yankees Bring in Ryan As Nunez Continues to Play Goalie With the Baseball

He didn't save money on his car insurance. He found out he's now in a pennant race.
With Derek Jeter out indefinitely with ankle soreness, the Yankees knew they had to do something to strengthen their defense at shortstop. Eduardo Nunez continues to be unreliable defensively so expect to see Brendan Ryan replace him in the late innings.

Ryan was acquired from the Seattle Mariners after Tuesday night's game for a player to be named later. Though he won't be eligible for the post-season (you have to get there first) his defense will be a big boost up from both Nunez and Jeter at this point.

He's not likely to get many starts, however, since his bat is lacking. Just a .238 career hitter, Ryan hit just .198 for the M's this season. The '70s porn 'stache will have to go though. Everyone has to sacrifice in tough times.


  1. This is a no value added move

    Same # of errors as nunez with a tooth pick for a bat

    This smacks of desperation , also tells me Jeter is DONE

  2. You can't go by number of errors. Nunez can't make routine plays and they don't care about Ryan's bat. He's a late inning replacement for Nunez.
