WHO REPLACES NADY?

With Xavier Nady headed toward Tommy John surgery, the Yankees are short a right-handed bat.

These are the top candidates to fill the roster void, at least temporarily:

Austin Jackson, Shelley Duncan, Todd Linden, Justin Leone and Angel Berroa.

(Click on name for current stats.)

The pickings are slim, so I would imagine a trade for a solid righty bat is in the works.

The issues with 5 listed above is that none of them are on the 40-man roster, so it's more involved than a simple call-up.

The Yankees seem not to want to rush Austin Jackson to the big club, but a 2 week stint while a trade is worked out might not be a bad thing.

Juan Miranda is having a solid start at Scranton, but he is a lefty.

UPDATE:

About an hour after I posted this, the Yankees announced they have recalled pitcher David Robertson from Scranton.

I figured they'd call up a bat.
