Yankees add Ramirez, Henn to bullpen
NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees tweaked their bullpen Wednesday, recalling relievers Edwar Ramirez and Sean Henn from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
The club optioned Jeff Karstens and Jim Brower to its top farm club one day after they pitched poorly in a 12-0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.
Bodog.com has the Yanks listed at +300 to win the World Series this season.
Karstens got a spot start Tuesday night and allowed five runs and five hits in three innings to drop to 0-3 with a 11.20 ERA this season. Brower, who relieved Karstens, was charged with six runs - four earned - and five hits in two-plus innings.
Henn is 2-0 with a 4.26 ERA in 21 games with New York this season. Ramirez has appeared in three games with the Yankees this year, going 1-0 while allowing four runs in 2 1-3 innings.
Brower, who was promoted Aug. 6, appeared in three games. He left the team briefly to be with his wife, Jessica, after the birth of the couple's first child.
