According to MLB Trade Rumors, the New York Yankees will sign RHP Brian Gordon and place him on the 40-man roster in time for him to start Thursday’s game against the Texas Rangers. Brian Gordon, 32, hasn’t had much time at the Major League level, but he’s been around for some time and I have never heard of him until today. That doesn’t happen very often.
It is not 100% set in stone that he’ll be starting, but it is very likely at this point. Gordon’s numbers have been very good in Triple-A this season, but I was actually looking forward to seeing what Hector Noesi had up his sleeves. That is the life of a rookie I suppose. If the Yankees feel like Gordon gives them a better chance to win games then I’m all for it.
