Via Josh Norris:

To make it all clear: Andrew Brackman and Dellin Betances are headed to NY to get a taste of life in the show, not to pitch at all; and just in from Damon Oppenheimer, Jesus Montero will be joining Betances and Brackman. However, H\he will also be inactive.

So Montero, Brackman, and Betances have been called up, but they aren’t active and can’t play. This is purely about getting the experience of being around a big league club in a playoff atmosphere. The Yankees have done this from time to time with different players over the years.

All three players have had big years in the minor leagues. Montero is probably the closest actually playing in the major leagues after spending an entire season at Triple-A, but Brackman might not be far behind. Betances will probably not get called up next season until September at the earliest. If there is a run of injuries that could change though.

Here is a look at each player’s stats:
