Looks like the Yankees have granted Erik Kratz’s wish. In case you haven’t noticed, the ex-Yankee has tweeted on multiple occasions in advocation of Trey Amburgey getting a chance in the majors (here, here, and here among many other tweets). And now, Amburgey reportedly will join the Yankees for tonight’s game against Boston.

No word on a corresponding roster moves, but we could see Darren O’Day shifted to the 60-day IL to open up a 40-man spot. Then, the Yankees should option one of Brooks Kriske or Albert Abreu to Triple-A in order to open up a 26-man spot. Alright, now that roster machinations are out of the way, let’s get to know Amburgey a bit more.
