With rosters expanding to 40 men today, the Yankees will call up 1B Doug Mientkiewicz, who has missed 82 games to a fractured right wrist, INF Alberto Gonzalez , who came over in the Randy Johnson trade, and RHP Jose Veras. They will add more pitchers in a few days.


Add IPK to the list.

I like the moves.  We know who we're going to see in important spots (Mo, Viz, Joba) and who isn't going to get work unless it's a blowout (Britton, Bruney, Farnsworth).  You can add Veras to that second list.

Minky and Alberto will both make decent late inning replacements.  Alberto's glove is supposed to be one of the best in the minors.
