Miranda Promoted: Robertson sent to Scranton

The Yanks called up Juan Miranda to the big league club because of Hideki Matsui's lack of success so far this season, and Mark Teixeira's injured wrist. Miranda was hitting .361/.425/.667 at Scranton, with 3 homers in 13 at bats. To make room for him, the Yanks sent David Robertson to Scranton, despite him hurling 2 scoreless innings, with 3 K's, in his only appearance so far this year. If Xavier Nady does need surgery we could see Robertson come back up to take his place on the roster, but I would rather see a long-man come up. I like Robertson and want him in the 'pen, but the Yanks aren't going to put someone like Damaso Marte or Edwar Ramirez in the minors since they have more big league experience (and Marte is expensive), thus Robertson is forced back to triple A. He turned 24 on April 9th, so he's still yougn and we'll see him in the Bronx again sometime soon.
