OF/1st baseman Steve Pearce is back with the Yankees. Steve started the season as a non roster invite with the Twins and was released and picked up by Scranton where he hit .318 with 11 HR before being shipped to the Orioles in June.  He was designated for assignment in July and picked up by the Astros where he hit  .254 with 8 RBI’s over the last few weeks. Now he has been traded back to the Yankees for Cash considerations . The Yankees have designated Brandon Laird for assignment to make room on the 40 man roster and will make a corresponding move on the 25 man roster once he arrives with the team. His role with the team will most likely be pinch-hitting or spot starts against lefties where he is batting .277 this season. Another Right handed bat will certainly be a plus on this lefty heavy lineup.
