Game 77: De Facto AceBy
With CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte both on the disabled list, Hiroki Kuroda as taken over the role of staff ace by default. Adam Warren & Co. took a pounding last night, so the bullpen is a little short and fans are pretty annoyed after two straight losses (the horror!).

Today’s game starts a little after 1pm ET and can be seen on YES locally and MLB Network nationally. Enjoy.
Roster Move: The Yankees sent Warren back to Triple-A after last night’s game and recalled D.J. Mitchell, who threw 103 pitches on Tuesday and should be good for long relief today. Hopefully that’s not needed. Joe Girardi said that David Phelps will likely start Wednesday and throw 80-85 pitches.
