Watching these games with my wife's family on the cape is torture. "So, you think they test these guys for steroids in their first season or what?"

Hanser Alberto has some skills, especially against lefties. He was on NY's 40 man for a couple of months this winter before they needed the spot.

Come on, Nestor, don't make Ottavino come in.

Yeah, he has not especially impressed offensively either, not going to miss him if and when he gets bumped back to AAA or dumped totally.
Hey, at least Ford got his chance. He earned it. Maybe someone like the Orioles will grab him in the off-season.

Curious to see the moves before tomorrow, I said it above, but I'd like Mantiply DFAd (they need the 40 man spot), Lail and Valera sent back down, and Loaisiga and Thairo activated/brought up. Loaisiga has had three days rest now, let's get him up here.

I think LAD/HOU/NYY are now a combined 29-6 since the trading deadline, quite the race for home field advantage (for the record, I will be stunned if NY ends up ahead of either of the other two).

Mantiply hangs on in the organization for now, but at least these three are off the MLB roster. The corresponding moves haven't been announced yet, but if one is Loaisiga, they need a 40 man spot for him. Thairo and Loaisiga, please!!

"Following tonight’s game, the Yankees made the following roster moves: - Optioned LHP Joe Mantiply and RHP Brady Lail to
@swbrailriders
- Returned “26th man” INF Breyvic Valera to
@swbrailriders. "

Not sure if they're allowed to DFA Camarena from the minor league IL, but that might have to be the move to clear a 40 man spot.

Rumor on Twitter is that Adonis Rosa is coming up, he is less disposable than Mantiply/Lail but also not an impact guy. I'm super confused about what they're doing with the 40 man, especially with Loaisiga and CC back later this week, but I guess we'll see.
