The Yankees recalled pitcher Nick Goody from Triple-A, the team announced before Sunday's game. Goody produced a 2.70 ERA over 3 1/3 innings earlier this season.
Following Wednesday's loss to the Astros, the Yankees optioned right-hander Nick Goody back to Triple-A. Goody was recalled prior to the game, and pitched a scoreless inning of the 6-2 defeat. The Yankees are expected to make a corresponding roster move in time for Thursday's game.
Yankess reliever Nick Rumbelow has been optioned down to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Rumbelow pitched in Tuesday's 15-1 rout by the Astros, and he allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits in his inning of work. In need of a fresh arm in the bullpen, the Yankees recalled fellow right-hander Nick Goody from Triple-A as a corresponding move.
There was no good news for Nick Goody on Thursday. One day after his promotion from Scranton-Wilkes Barre, the reliever was optioned back to the same team by the Yankees. Goody did get to pitch during his short stint. He hurled a scoreless, hitless inning Wednesday night in Cleveland and has allowed one run on 2 1/3 innings in three appearances this season.
The Yankees selected the contract of pitcher Chris Capuano and recalled pitcher Nick Goody from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday. To clear two spots on the roster, pitcher Branden Pinder was optioned to Triple-A and infielder/outfielder Garrett Jones was designated for assignment.
