My prayers have been answered! With the Single-A Florida State League season officially over, Preston Claiborne is back in the Bronx to rejoin the New York Yankees bullpen.

Claiborne was sent down by the Yankees on August 26th to make some room for fresh arms in the bullpen, solely because September 1st was only a few days away, and the Yanks would be able to call him back up once rosters expanded.

In his rookie season, Claiborne has appeared in 37 games for the Yankees since being called-up in late April. He's been one of the best pitchers in the bullpen, posting a 2.78 ERA with a 36/11 strikeout to walk ratio.

Yesterday, the Yankees made five initial September call-ups, including three pitchers -- Dellin Betances, Brett Marshall and Cesar Cabral. The Yankees active roster now stands at 30 players.
