Many of us thought we’d never see him back in pinstripes, but Mighty Matt DeSalvo is headed back to the Bronx to start one game of a doubleheader next Saturday.
Here’s the problem with DeSalvo: he doesn’t have overpowering stuff, so he has to work the edges. If he’s getting the calls, he can be fine. If he’s being squeezed, he’s going to get killed when he puts one over. That’s not exactly the kind of pitcher you want on your roster full-time, but he can suffice for a spot start.
