Edwar Ramirez called up

The Yankees have finally made the right move.

The Yankees have promoted 26-year-old right-handed reliever Edwar Ramirez from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and he will report today to provide support for a bullpen that has been wretched.

Ramirez, who threw three scoreless innings and struck out six Friday night, was 0-0 with an 0.67 ERA in 15 appearances with Scranton. In 26 2/3 innings, he allowed 13 hits and nine walks, and struck out 47.

To make room for Ramirez, the Yankees are expected to send infielder Chris Basak down to Scranton (source).
Unfortunately, I can see Joe Torre never using him in a big spot. He never trusts rookies in big spots.

He'll still use Mike Myers, Kyle Farnsworth and a tired Scott Proctor when he pulls his starter after throwing 60 pitches.

I also still want Chris "Great" Britton called up.
