Sergio Mitre Coming Back to the Bronx

SERGIO MITRE HEADED BACK TO THE BRONX

According to Tom Haudicourt of the Milwaukee Journal, Sergio Mitre is being sent to to the Yankees for cash considerations. He should be a viable bullpen option.

Mitre was designated for assignment on Monday, by the Brewers.

UPDATE 10:35PM EST: Buddy Carlyle has been DFA’d to make room for Mitre.

  1. The thing that makes me mad is that they DFA’d Buddy Carlyle. He was pretty good in the bullpen, and I had seen Mitre pitch in games when he was a Brewer for a good minute and a half, and what I saw wasn’t exactly pretty. Well, what’s done is done. Maybe David Robertson can teach him a few tricks about pitching in New York.

    • Don’t forget Mitre was a Yankee before hopefully he can pitch like he use to. It is a shame that Carlyle was the low man on the totem pole

      • Well, from the statistical point of view, here is what Mitre looks like this year: a solid 3.27 ERA, however 30 hits in 33 IP is a bit of a cause for concern for a bullpen guy, and 10 BB with only 14 K. But he should a minor, minor upgrade over what they’ve had of late.

  2. Nice to see Mitre back in the fold. He can be used in a lot of ways. He could make a spot start if someone goes down and was actually a pretty decent long man.

  3. yeah that was a great game.

    That SI team can really hit. They have a young second baseman in Angelo Gumbs who hit 2 HR’s and had a RBI double in a 6 run 8th inning! A 9-1 win was nice to see. Hey, they have won 9 in a row. They have good defense in the field, but they have a first baseman also named Nunez who made an error! What irony!

  4. Culver did not have a good day at the plate and neither did Mason Williams, but Culver made 2 6-3 DP’s on defense and did a nice job in the field. Him and Gumbs were a nice combo. Nothing seemed to get by them
