Bye, bye Berroa, hello Ramiro

In keeping with this year's tradition of keeping super-young prospects on big-league rosters (See: Porcello, Rick; Perry, Ryan; Cahill, Trevor; Anderson, Brett and Zimmermann, Jordan) Ramiro Pena has won the battle with Angel Berroa to be the Yankees' utility infielder.

Pena's a defensive wizard and had a surprisingly robust spring with the bat. Once Alex Rodriguez returns Pena, just 23, should head to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for more season. Or, if he plays his cards right, he could stick and Cody Ransom could head down.

Either way, congratulations, Ramiro, knock 'em dead.
