Based on information on Peter's blog,
Yankees called up Juan Miranda and optioned Dave Robertson back to minor
So, I guess Yankees front office read my blog(Just Kidding!). Yankees makes this move one day after I recommend Yankees to find someone who can hit and play 1B/3B decently.
Based on what I saw from Juan Miranda in spring training, I don't think he is the answer in the long run for two reasons.
First of all, I don't think his defense is decent at 1B and I don't think he is able to play 3B.
Secondly, he is another left hand bat.
That being said, he is the answer at this moment for three reasons.
First of all, he is on 40 men roster and from our farm system. Why not give him a shot now.
Secondly, we need to give Teixeira more breaks because of his left wrist injury when you consider Swisher is our everyday right fielder.
Thirdly, we need someone is able to hit that Miranda may be able to do it when you consider Matsui's left knee gives him trouble, Posada just comes back from major shoulder surgery and Damon is getting old.
