In which we honor Sabathia's workhorse-ability
Baseball America's Top 20 Latin Summer League Prospects

Just when it appeared that the Yanks would go with Garcia and Colon in the Nos. 4 and 5 spots, Ivan Nova made them think again. True, we can’t read too much into his six no-hit innings from last night, just as we can’t look too much into the previous start, when he got shelled.

There are more pitching matters, too, including the recent wave of cuts that sent Andrew Brackman to minor league camp.

    a few options we can go with:

    1. DFA or trade Mitre, Nova to the pen as long man, Garcia/Colon in 4/5 (If Garcia/Colon stink move Nova to the rotation bring up one of Brackman/Pope/Warren/Noesi as the longman)

    2. Mitre on the DL to start, Nova to the pen as long man, Garcia/Colon in 4/5

    3. Keep Nova in AAA, Mitre as the longman in the pen Garcia/Colon in 4/5 (if one of stinks bring up Nova)

    4. Nova in the 4th spot, winner of Colon/Garica in the 5th, Mitre as the longman in the pen (if Colon/Garcia winner stinks bring up Brackman/Noesi or move Mitre to the 5th slot and bring up Prior/Pope/Warren as the longman)

    Personally I like #3. Lets explore if theres any regular season value from Garcia/Colon, and realistically Colon is looking better than Garcia. The only leg up Garcia has is he pitched in 2010.
