Albaladejo to join Yankee bullpen

Jack Curry reports that right handed reliever Jonathan Albaladejo will be called up today when Andy Pettitte is placed on the D.L. I’ve been waiting for this move for a long time as it just seemed inevitable. In fact, I was starting to get annoyed that the Yankees had not called him up earlier. However, all is well now. Hopefully he can stick around this time around in the majors, he has to better than Chan Ho Park, Chad Gaudin, or Dustin Moseley. You may remember Albaladejo from his previous stints in the majors, but he is a different pitcher now. Mike Axisa did a nice write-up about the “new” Albaladejo about a month ago, but it still is helpful if you want to know why Albie is a new and better pitcher. I highly recommend checking it out.
