With the New York Yankees coming off a dominating win against Kansas City, here’s the news and notes you need to know.
In Wednesday, May 17, 2017’s edition of New York Yankees Bronx Bomber Buzz, we take a look at some minor league roster moves as well as another chapter of the saga between Dellin Betances and Randy Levine.
First off, the New York Yankees made three minor league roster moves on Tuesday. One of which includes utility man Rob Refsnyder reporting to Triple-A Scranton following a minor stint in the majors.
The two other moves included catcher Francisco Diaz being promoted to Triple-A from Tampa as well as Abiatal Avelino being demoted from Triple-A down to Double-A Trenton.
Next up, the saga between Yankees president Randy Levine and Dellin Betances continues due to some recent comments made by Levine regarding the New York-native.
“He’s going to do great,” said Levine when asked on his thoughts on Betances being the temporary closer. “He’s ready. I have full confidence he’ll do a great job.”
This is the complete opposite of what Levine stated a few months ago when he claimed that Betances was the reason for poor ticket sales as well as not being closer material.
It seems as if the Yankees’ President realizes the mistake he made a few months back and wants to make amends with the flame-throwing right-hander.
