NEW YORK — The New York Yankees have shuffled infielders, promoting Alberto Gonzalez from the minors and cutting Reid Brignac.

The Yankees made the moves before Friday night's game against Tampa Bay.

Gonzalez was selected from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He was acquired from the Chicago Cubs in May and spent a week with the Yankees. In his last game for the Yankees, he started at shortstop and later pitched to a batter.

Brignac was obtained from Colorado in mid-May. He hit .114 in 44 at-bats for New York.

The Yankees also acquired minor league pitcher Yoshinori Tateyama from Texas for future considerations and sent him to Triple-A. The right-hander made 53 relief appearances for the Rangers in the previous two years.

In other moves, former big league outfielder Corey Patterson and lefty Mike Zagurski joined Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
