Yankees News and Notes

Rafael Soriano was placed on the DL today but there is no structural damage.  He just has elbow inflammation.  It is good for the Yankees to give him the rest and get him back in shape in a couple of weeks.  Chris Dickerson was called up to the major leagues, he found out around midnight last night on the bus coming back from Pawtucket to Scranton. 

Nick Swisher was out because he was sick.  He was throwing up after the game last night.  It might be best for him to have a couple of days off to clear his head and maybe he can get going once he feels better.  He landed at 2:30 in the afternoon today and went right to the ballpark. 

Joe Girardi would not committ to a new eighth inning guy saying that Joba Chamberlain and Dave Robertson will both be in the back end.  It means that depending on the day and the matchups I guess, that is what he will go too.  The Yankees do like to use Robertson more to get out of jams and Joba to start innings.  They used Robertson first tonight followed by Joba. 

Girardi said he had no doubt today of where he was putting Jorge Posada in the lineup.  He said "To me it was the place to put him today."  "There's a lot of things I look at, and I just thought it was the place to put him." 

Carlos Silva is starting for AAA Scranton on Thursday.
