It's been a busy last week of moves for the Yankees. After all, this team is playing hot and you'd expect there to be some shuffling to keep things as high as possible.
Ben Heller got his chance to make a name for himself in the Yankees bullpen a couple of days ago.
Almost as quickly as it started, however, it ended. The 25 year old has been sent back down to AAA.
Heller made one appearance, giving up a hit and walking a batter in 0.1 inning. Last season, in four appearances for the team, he pitched to a 6.43 ERA in seven innings.
Heller was a 22nd-round pick by the Cleveland Indians in 2013, coming to New York in last year's Andrew Miller trade.
