Via Chad Jennings:

Forgot to mention this pregame, but when Girardi was asked whether Royce Ring would be the last of the September call-ups, he hesitated. Then he said, “Don’t write that.” Sounds like there’s a good chance someone else will be here eventually. Andrew Brackman?

The most likely players to get called-up are those already on the 40-man roster. The players on that roster that aren’t already here are Brackman, LHP Steve Garrison, RHP Hector Noesi, RHP Romulo Sanchez, and IF Reegie Corona.

Sanchez is currently on the DL, but may be coming off soon so it doesn’t necessarily rule him out. Corona is an infielder and would be overkill as the Yankees don’t really need another infielder. It could be that they can DFA Corona and put somebody else on the 40-man.

So Brackman, Garrison, Noesi, and Sanchez are the most likely suspects. Stay tuned…
