Yankees' Pirela could eat into playing time of Drew, Gregorius
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(12:10 pm ET) Yankees infielder Jose Pirela is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday, and that could be bad news for Stephen Drew and Didi Gregorius, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Pirela has been out since he suffered a concussion during spring training.
And, despite the fact that Pirela has just 24 big-league at-bats on his ledger (all coming at the end of the 2014 season), Heyman believes he could cut into the playing time of Drew and/or Gregorius, each of whom have gotten off to slow starts this year.
Drew is hitting just .167 on the year and Gregorius has committed four errors at shortstop.
Meanwhile, Pirela was hitting .579 (11 for 19) at Triple-A this season as part of his rehab. He had a home run and four doubles as well and could see time at both middle-infield positions for the Yankees.

|(4/30/15) Yankees infield prospect Jose Pirela is set to move his rehab assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after one game with Class A Tampa and two with Double-A Trenton.
Pirela played both second and third with Trenton, but the presence of Rob Refsnyder at second in Scranton could have Pirela focused on third base there.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told lhblogs.com that it has yet to be determined what the team will do with Pirela upon completion of his rehab. He could remain at Triple-A or promoted to the big leagues.
His performance at the plate has not been encouraging. He is 1-for-14 during his rehab stint.
