Yankees Pick up Long and Durazo
Monday, May 22, 2006

In the wake of the unfortunate series loss to the Mets (which was nearly a sweep if not for Wagner’s lapse in control on Saturday), the Yankees have decided to reclaim some control over their depleted lineup. The Yankees’ disabled list now boasts the names of eight players that are supposed to populate the roster—Chacon, Matsui, Sheffield, Crosby, Dotel, Pavano, and Sturtze—and their record is suffering the consequences. As was rumored last week, the Yanks signed 30-year-old Terrance Long to help Cabrera, Bernie, and Damon in the outfield, and while he hasn’t been a dominating presence at the plate (his OPS topped out at .788 back in 2000), he has proven himself capable of playing outfield on an everyday basis. The Yanks have also picked up Erubiel Durazo, a first baseman/DH who has played for Arizona and Oakland and their minor league clubs. Durazo has shown glimmers of excellence in terms of average and power: he hit 22 homers in 142 games with Oakland in 2004, and his MLB batting average is .281 (.288 in AAA this year). He’ll start out in AAA Columbus but will likely be brought up as Torre continues to hammer out the best lineup he can with his starters laid up.
