Yankees' Caleb Smith: Added to 40-man roster
Smith's contract was selected from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.
Smith has served primarily in a starting role at Triple-A this season and has thrived in that capacity, submitting a 2.07 ERA and generating 86 strikeouts over 87 innings. The Yankees have an opening in the rotation with Michael Pineda (elbow) set to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery, but it appears Smith's Triple-A rotation mate, Luis Cessa, is the top candidate to assume Pineda's spot. Smith will likely instead serve in long relief while he remains with the big club.
