Yankees sign Rene Rivera

According to Multiple Sources, the New York Yankees have signed catcher and former Met Rene Rivera to a minor league contract.Rivera who is 26 will report to Triple A Scranton. He has not had to much Major League experience., as he started his career with the Seattle Mariners in 2004 and played his last major league game in 2006. He was then brought to Spring Training by the Mets, but was later released.

I am guessing they just want to bring in a guy that has experience rather than rush Jesus Montero to help out Francisco Cervelli until Jorge Posada returns.

Buzz:: Mets Contact Rockies about Luis Castillo

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Mets have contacted the Colorado Rockies about acquiring Luis Castillo, as the Rockies are looking to improve from their utility man Melvin Mora.

I assume the Mets would eat a large portion of his remaining money if Colorado was interested in his services. I would pull any deal in a minute my only question is who would take his spot? Alex Cora, Ruben Tejada, or maybe their having Daniel Murphy work on second? Either way try to get it done Omar so we can finally end the Luis Castillo Era in New York.

Posada out 3-4 Weeks

The second Yankee in as many days has been placed on the disabled list for an extended period of time. Jorge Posada joins Nick Johnson on the disabled list and is scheduled to miss 3 to 4 weeks with a hairline fracture in his right foot.

In my eyes, though the Yankees still have big bats such as Jeter, Teixeira, and A-Rod, you have to say to yourself this is a problem now that Posada, Granderson, and Johnson are on the DL.
