Matt Tracy, Tyler Webb, and Jacob Lindgren promoted; Mitchell optioned down likely to make room for Beltran

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Mitchell was sent down to Triple-A, likely to make room for Beltran to be activated. Several minor leaguers have been promoted as well.

Now that the Home Run Derby and All-Star Game are over, we've reached the boring part of the break. The Yankees have made some roster moves, though, and some prospects have been promoted, so that's somewhat exciting.

Bryan Mitchell has been optioned back down to Triple-A. He's been called up a few times this season, but has yet to make an appearance out of the bullpen. The move leaves an open spot on the Yankees' 25-man roster, which is probably for Carlos Beltran. If all goes according to plan, Beltran should be activated from the 7-day DL on Friday, which he was placed on after a ball ricocheted into his face during batting practice last week. If there's a plus side to this, the concussion was well-timed to match up with the All-Star break in order to give him some extra rest.

Several minor leaguers have been promoted, as well. Pitchers Matt Tracy and Tyler Webb are both moving from Double-A to Triple-A. Tracy has a 3.24 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and .286 BAA on the season. While Tracy has previously made brief stints in Triple-A, this is the first time for Webb, who started the season in Tampa. Overall, Webb has a 3.70 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 12.6 K/9, having struck out 68 batters through 48.2 IP.

Finally, recent draftee Jacob Lindgren is headed up to High-A Tampa. Though he's only pitched six innings total as a minor leaguer, he has already notched 13 strikeouts. That's a casual 19.5 K/9. Give that man some stiffer competition.
