The New York Yankees recalled INF Alberto Gonzalez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Friday, June 21. He was hitting .224 with eight RBIs in 23 games at Class AAA. "Hopefully he'll bring some offense - a little bit more offense," manager Joe Girardi said. "He's a shortstop that can play anywhere, so that gives us some freedom." Gonzalez will be used in a utility role at shortstop and third base.

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said INF Jayson Nix is basically the everyday shortstop and 3B David Adams is the everyday third baseman for the time being. INF Alberto Gonzalez is strictly a backup.
Fantasy Tip: This gives Nix and Adams more concrete short-term value for AL-only leagues until Derek Jeter (ankle) and Alex Rodriguez (hip) return sometime after the All-Star break.

In corresponding moves, INF Alberto Gonzalez had his contract purchased from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) was moved from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Gonzalez on the 40-man roster. Nunez's DL stint is retroactive to Monday, May 6.

The New York Yankees acquired INF Alberto Gonzalez from the Chicago Cubs Friday, May 10, in exchange for future considerations.
Fantasy Tip: The Yankees are banged up, period, but especially on the infield. Jayson Nix has been starting at shortstop with Eduardo Nunez (rib cage) and Chris Nelson has been filling in at third base. Kevin Youkilis (back) remains on the disabled list. Gonzalez will serve as infield depth, but with Nunez expected to come back soon, he might not see much time. Reserve him strictly for deep AL formats.
