Aardsma allows four runs in latest minor league rehab outing

By

In his second minor league rehab outing following his late-June setback, right-hander David Aardsma allowed four runs (three earned) while recording two outs for Short Season Staten Island. He allowed a homer to first batter of the game, and the rest of the inning went single, single, reached on an error, double, pop-out, walk, strikeout swinging. The reliever who followed him stranded all three inherited runners.

Aardsma, 30, threw 27 total pitches and was hitting 89 mph early in the outing according to Pinstriped Prospects. Obviously it would be nice if he came out and dominated, but that’s not really the point. Joba Chamberlain tore up the minors during his rehab stint and look how that turned out. The important thing is that Aardsma is healthy and on his way towards being ready to contribute next year, just because time is running out for him to join the bullpen this season.

    Sounds like he’d fit right in with our current bullpen.
