Yankees recalled INF Gregorio Petit from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Petit has batted just .200/.256/.286 with 13 strikeouts in 35 at-bats this season with the Yankees. The 30-year-old utility infielder is not a fantasy-relevant player.
Jun 25 - 10:03 AM

Petit had been on the shelf with a right hand contusion since May 6. He hit .200/.256/.286 with 13 strikeouts in 40 plate appearances with the Yankees. He'll serve as minor league infield depth for the time being, though could see additional major league time if the Yankees are in need of a utility bat off the bench in the future.

Tuesday's starter, Chase Whitley, will take his spot on the active roster. Petit, 30, was batting .208 (5-for-24) with three doubles and five RBI over 13 games with the Yankees this season. The Yankees don't figure to go without a backup middle infielder for long, so it's possible that Jose Pirela (concussion) could be activated soon.

Yankees purchased the contract of INF Gregorio Petit from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Apr 5 - 8:39 AM

Petit wasn't going to break camp with the Astros, but he'll have a shot to be a backup infielder with the Brendan Ryan-less Yankees. The trade is indicative of how serious Ryan's calf strain might be. Petit, 30, batted .278/.300/.423 in 37 games with the Astros last season.
