Brian Roberts was designated for assignment just a short time ago. It happened because Stephen Drew and Martin Prado were added to the roster.
According to LoHud:
"Stephen Drew will be the Yankees regular second baseman, and Martin Prado is going to get the bulk of his time in the outfield, mostly in right field. 'We’re obviously trying to improve our offensive output and give Joe’s a lot of flexible options,' Cashman said."
And remember our minor league infielder Rob Refsnyder? Chad Jennings of LoHud also wrote this:
"Cashman says Rob Refsnyder will focus on second base the rest of the season in Triple-A with an eye toward making him a big league option next year. Still no plans to call him up."
I liked Brian Roberts, but he never seemed to gel with the fans, and never really caught fire. He's a damn good teammate from what I hear and he had his moments... I wish the guy well.
