Wanted: A starting pitcherBy
So Ian Kennedy has been sent back to AAA, and all of a sudden, the Yanks have a giant rotation hole. Phil Hughes throws on Tuesday for Scranton and won’t be back in the Majors until at least next weekend. Carl Pavano is still a start or two away from rejoining the Yanks provided he doesn’t chip a nail or stub his toe. So where does that leave the Yanks? Chase Wright threw an uninspiring game on Saturday; Kei Igawa could make his less-than-triumphant return to the Majors; Darrell Rasner, barely serviceable in relief on Friday, could make a Wednesday start. No matter how you slice or dice it, whichever pitcher is facing the Twins on Wednesday will be far, far from our first choice of Yankee hurlers in the midst of a do-or-die stretch of baseball.
