Yankees | Hinske left off ALCS roster

Marc Topkin, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports New York Yankees OF Eric Hinske was left off the team's ALCS roster and was replaced by OF Freddy Guzman. "We thought we could use another speed guy in this round," manager Joe Girardi said. "We've had some success doing those type of things late in games. And in a seven-game series, felt that it could come up late in games. As we saw the games against Minnesota were very close. And sometimes you can use a couple of pinch runners. And if Gardy gets a start, then you don't have a pinch runner. It just frees us up to do more things."
