The Yankees sent Hector Noesi down to Triple-A Scranton, but he may be back in the Bronx soon.

Noesi was sent down to make room for Freddy Garcia, Monday night's starter.

According to Joe Girardi, Noesi has to remain in the minors until the season ends on Sept. 5.

"He's ptiched very well. But our bullpen right now is a six-man buillpen," Girardi said. "So our starters have to give us some length."

In 24 appearances in 2011, Noesi is 2-0 with a 3.42 ERA.
