Small note, but just wanted to keep you in the loop on recent roster moves by our beloved New York Yankees. We signed lefty pitcher Tommy Layne... I know... AREN'T YOU LIKE SO EXCITED!
MLB Trade Rumors writes: "The Yankees have announced that they’ve signed lefty Tommy Layne to a big-league contract. The signing will require a 25-man roster move, which has yet to be announced."
