Speedy outfielder Greg Golson will be available on the bench for the doubleheader today, taking Alfredo Aceves’ place on the active roster. Aceves was inactive the last few games and his back did not get better, forcing him to the disabled list.
Aceves is the second long reliever the Yankees have lost this year, joining Chan Ho Park. Both were having good seasons too.
The Daily News is reporting Park will throw rehab games today and Friday, in order to return possibly Sunday or Monday.
