Listen: Andy Leone, Blake Swihart And Sandy Leone discussed on Yankees Baseball (Air Only)
"Each other a lot they were teammates in Cleveland. And then, of course, we're broadcast not partners, but work together an ESPN they have known each other for for a very very long time. And they're extremely good friends, and they just gave each other little hug their down that. Town at home plate. Here comes Chris sale. And he is flanked by sandy Leone. They just got from back from Pawtucket and during the spring the Red Sox front office and whoever makes these decisions coaches and ipad guys, they had to decide between San Dillion was just a catcher and Blake Swihart who can catch. He's not that great defensive catcher and not that great handling pitchers, but he can play on the positions. He can play the outfield you can play the infield. So finally, Dave Dombrowski said the the decision was his and today, they designated Blake Swihart for assignment and got Cindy Leona here. You got some veteran pitchers on this staff, and they are very veteran pitches have a routine, and I guess Andy Leone is very good defensive catcher. They love the way he sets up. They love the way. He calls a game. They love the way he frames, and he caught all I think pretty much all of sales starts last year. I seem to remember him. Sorry. Every time we saw him. Sandy Leon was behind so vicious or wondering if it's going to make any difference. So Blake Swihart was designated for assignment. And sandy Leone is back, Andrew Benintendi. They he might be able to pinch it if necessary he fouled a ball off, his ankles, very swollen. And he is very sore as for the Yankees. If you're just turning on your radios did not hear the. Injured list has gotten bigger. Greg bird is on it. He tore the planter fascia in his ankle. So he's a walking. And we will see what happens links goes on. And we'll be back with the starter. Tonight's game after this."
