Yankees promote Whelan for bullpen help

With Rafael Soriano and Joba Chamberlain, among others, ailing, the Yankees would benefit from some extra bullpen help. For now, Kevin Whelan has been recalled from Triple-A and will join the Yankees Friday in the Bronx.

Whalen has served as the closer for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. He has 18 saves, a 1.67 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 27 innings. The 27 year old has been in the minors for seven seasons without ever having received a promotion to the majors, but he's certainly earned his trip this season -- even if the promotion is out of necessity.
