After we learned Nady would be out for the season it became clear that the Yankees would need another bat. Cashman downplayed the rumors but today we learned that Eric Hinske will be coming to the Yankees. Eric Fryer (the guy we got for Chase Wright) and Scott Erickson will be going to the Pirates. The Pirates are also picking up some of Hinske's contract.
Hinske will be in uniform tonight, Ramiro Pena is being sent down to AAA where he'll get regular playing time. My first reaction is that I like this deal but I didn't look to carefully at the numbers yet.

Yesterday Chase Wright was DFA'ed to make room on the 40 man roster for Pettitte. I`m not a big fan of Wright but somebody will pick him up because of those gaudy AAA numbers.

So there were a bunch of promotions/demotions yesterday:
- Mark Melancon and Chase Wright were promoted to Scranton
- To make room for them, Wilkins Arias and Steven White were sent down to Trenton
- Eric Wordekemper was sent down to Tampa. This season has been a major disappointment for him
- Zach McAllister won pitcher of the week in the Florida State League
- Brandon Braboy won pitcher of the week in the NY-Penn League
- Brian Baisley won hitter of the week in the NY-Penn League

Yesterday Ian Kennedy pitched for the Gulf Coast Yankees making his first start since he strained his lat. We don't know how many pitches he threw exactly but he was supposed to throw under 50 pitches. His numbers were: 1 Run on 3 Hits with no walks and 7 strikeouts over 3 innings. Chase Wright also pitched in that game.
