Early Spring Training rotation announced


Real live baseball is just a few days away, and Bryan Hoch has the Yankees’ early Spring Training rotation for us…

March 3rd vs. Pirates: Chad Gaudin, Sergio Mitre, Al Aceves
March 4th @ Phillies: CC Sabathia (vs. Roy Halladay)
March 5th vs. Rays: Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain

The best part? All three games are on MLB Network (the Pirates and Rays games will be on YES as well), so we get to the see the Yanks in action. Based on how these things usually go, each of those guys mentioned above with throw two innings max, and the rest of the game will go to the lesser-knowns of the staff. We might even have ourselves an Andrew Brackman sighting.

Chad Jennings has the pitching probables beyond those first three games above, and he also mentions that Sabathia didn’t throw today because of the rain. He’s going to throw tomorrow instead, so don’t worry about it. Rumor has it Chan Ho Park should be in camp by then as well, though he’s about a week behind everyone else. Hooray for Spring Training!
