Silva set to throw batting practice

By

Via George King, scrap heap pickup Carlos Silva is scheduled to throw batting practice in Extended Spring Training for the first time since signing with the Yankees a few weeks ago. He had been working under a conditioning program and throwing bullpens so far, but moving on to face live batters is the next step toward minor league games. I’m not sure what Silva will give the Yankees, if anything, but they need the pitching depth and it doesn’t hurt to have him as an option.

    The Yankees could seriously put together the heaviest rotation of all time

      There’s that word again: “heavy.” Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the Earth’s gravitational pull?
