Wonder if moving Andujar to the 60 day IL is just a book keeping move to open up a 40 man slot or does it indicate some sort of set back when he started the rehab last week?

Given that the September roster expansions are now limited to 28 players, it seems unlikley we'll see Andujar (or Frazier) again this season barring any further IL stints by the current OFs on the 26 man roster.

I like Allen and I don´t know why Davis continues to be ahead of him.

I think Britton's career with the Yanks is over.
