The Daily News’ Sam Borden reports that relievers Paul Quantril and Mike Stanton will be sent packing by the New York Yankees.

One Yankee insider wasn’t certain what method the Yanks might use to cut ties with Stanton and Quantrill, but indicated the Bombers were looking to get younger in their bullpen. Earlier yesterday, reliever Jason Anderson was called up from Triple-A Columbus; he joins Scott Proctor (above), a hard throwing righthander who was also promoted recently.

Adds the New York Times’ Tyner Keppner,

Quantrill and Stanton shook hands and exchanged hugs with teammates and club personnel after Wednesday night’s rainout at Camden Yards. Quantrill would not comment after leaving the clubhouse, and Stanton said, “You can read between the lines.”

I certainly can. Those Yankees are very affectionate.
