BEN GAMEL CALLED UP
Quick note about a minor league hopeful many of us Yankee fans are falling into deep like with. It's Ben Gamel and many of us, including the Yankees liked what they saw this spring.
Well, the word is the Yankees have called up the outfielder and have optioned James Pazos, the same guy they called up yesterday when they put Alex Rodriguez on the 15 day DL with a hammy.
Here's the report by YES Network:
"Yankees have called up outfielder Ben Gamel from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and he will be in uniform for the Yankees for Thursday night's series finale in Baltimore.
To make room on the 25-man roster, the Yankees optioned LHP James Pazos back to Triple-A.
Gamel, 23, was hitting .286 with one home run, nine RBI, seven stolen bases and a .709 OPS in 23 games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season."
I'm happy for Gamel, and I'm happy we all get to see him again!
