New York Yankees
The Yankees have yet to announce an official move, but it is believed that reliever Hector Noesi will be sent down to Triple-A Scranton to make room for right-hander Freddy Garcia, who is slated to start Monday's game.
Noesi was not listed on the Yankees roster posted in the locker room before Monday's game.
"Of course," Noesi said when asked if he thought he'd be back in the Bronx soon.
Garcia hasn't pitched in roughly three weeks due to a cut on his right index finger.
In 24 appearances in 2011, Noesi is 2-0 with a 3.42 ERA.
NO BP FOR TEX? Mark Teixeira's name was not listed among hitters batting in pre-game BP. Could be an oversight because Teixeira was listed in the lineup. Or it could mean Teixeira needs a rest because he's dealing with an ailment.
