You’ve probably heard by now, but just in case: The Yankees have recalled RHP Alfredo Aceves from AAA Scranton. To free up room on the 25-man they’ve optioned RHP Anthony Claggett. This gives the Yanks a long man, though they probably don’t much need one at this point. I have a feeling this move is in anticipation of a rainout tonight. Aceves would probably start one game of a doubleheader tomorrow. That would keep the rotation on regular rest. If they were to go Hughes-Joba tomorrow, they’d have to find another starter to fill in on Saturday in Baltimore, since they wouldn’t dare throw either on three days’ rest. If the game gets called tonight, look for an Aceves-Hughes doubleheader tomorrow.
