Russ Canzler
Apr 14: Canzler will likely be called up to the Yankees on Tuesday, mlb.com's Bryan Hoch reports. With Francisco Cervelli (hamstring) headed for the disabled list, the Yankees have need of a backup first baseman. There's still some chance the team could ask one of its utility infielders -- Dean Anna or Yangervis Solarte -- to fill the role, but it sounds like Canzler should get the call-up. Canzler, 28, is a solid Triple-A player with very limited major league potential. He'll likely be limited to an occasional start or two at first base and maybe a handful of pinch-hitting appearances.
