In light of Joba being on a pretty strict pitch count, the Yanks have called up reliever Scott Patterson from SWB. To make room on the 25 man roster, we designated Morgan Ensberg for assignment.
Letting Ensberg go is a good idea. The ex-Atty. General (Gonzalez) has shown to be a capable 3B fill-in for A-Rod and has been better both in the field and at the plate then Ensberg. Having Betemit, Duncan and Ensberg is a waste of a roster spot.
The 29 year old Patterson has a career 1.76 ERA in the minors. In 138ip, he's allowed 92 hits, 28 walks and 156 strike outs. Scott's first appearance for the Yanks this year will be his major league debut.
