Yankees Recall P Brett Tomko from AAA

According to, the Yankees have finally given Brett Tomko his chance on the Major League roster after toying with a bevy of unproven and unprepared youngsters.

"The Yankees recalled RHP Brett Tomko from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Tomko posted a 0.64 ERA and a 17/4 K/BB ratio in 14 innings with Scranton. He'll take the roster spot of David Robertson and will pitch in middle relief."

All I can say is...IT'S ABOUT TIME.

New York now has two proven long men in their bullpen, able to compensate for virtually every occasion when a starter blows up in the early innings.

This should prove to be a major benefit for the Yankees, as they can now focus of using the "best of the worst" in their bullpen only during the season's closest games.
