    Charles Gipson signed?

    Looking at the Columbus roster, they have Gipson listed on the roster. I didn't see any announcement, but I suppose that if it's listed on the Clippers website, it's probably for real. Check it out at their site here. I've liked Gipson for his speed in his Seattle days. He's not much with the bat or power, but the Yankees don't need that anyway. Latham is probably a better all around player than Gipson, but Gipson's versatility to play both infield and outfield, and be a pinch runner extraordinare that the Yankees haven't had since Homer Bush may earn him a trip to the big club if Latham has some lapses, or if there are more injuries to the infielders.

    Source: Gipson Joining Yanks

    By Ken Davidoff

    Minneapolis - It may be early in the season, and they may be off to the best 17-game start in their history, but the Yankees already are attempting to improve their roster.

    According to multiple sources, Charles Gipson will join the Yankees early this week, most likely Tuesday in Anaheim, Calif. Gipson will replace Chris Latham as the reserve outfielder, and he also has experience at shortstop, so he will give Joe Torre another option if rookie Erick Almonte continues to struggle.

    Gipson, 30, began the season with Triple-A Columbus. He spent parts of the past five years with the Seattle Mariners, recording a .236 batting average with no homers and 27 RBIs in 331 games.

    The Yankees signed Latham to a $400,000 contract during the winter, and he has played in two games, picking up two hits in four at-bats. He is out of minor-league options, and Gipson currently is not on the Yankees' 40-man roster.

    Latham will have to be moved to another team or simply released in order to make room for Gipson. The Yankees apparently hope to get something done with Latham in the next couple of days; hence the delay on Gipson's arrival.

    How is Latham out of options? Isn't he a career minor leaguer? Who would claim him?

    Gipson would give the Yanks some speed off the bench as well. With the Yanks firing on all cylinders right now (knock on wood) Latham's role has obviously become very limited. Gipson might offer the team a little more flexibility. He probably wouldn't be needed as a defensive replacement since both of our corner outfielders play their positions pretty well but he could very well be used as a pinch runner late in a close game.

    Overseas Business

    By Ken Davidoff

    Hideki Matsui came to the Yankees from the Yomiuri Giants, and now the Yankees might send a player to their new business partner, although Chris Latham is not quite Matsui's equal. According to a source familiar with the situation, the Yankees are working on selling Latham's contract to the Giants. That would allow the Yankees to bring up Charles Gipson from Triple-A Columbus. The Yankees view Gipson as an upgrade over Latham.
