Aardsma escaped bases loaded jam in latest rehab outing


In his latest minor league rehab outing with Double-A Trenton, David Aardsma pitched out of a bases loaded jam and tossed up a scoreless inning. The first three batters of inning reached base on a walk, a single, and a another walk, but the right-hander struck out the fourth batter before getting a 4-6-3 double play. He threw just 15 of his 30 pitches for strikes.

I believe the plan is for Aardsma to pitch again in tomorrow night’s game, which would be the first back-to-back appearances of his rehab assignment. Don’t quote me on that though. Either way, Aardsma hasn’t pitched all that well during this last few weeks and it seems unlikely that the Yankees would activate him off the DL before the end of the season. If they do, I doubt he sees any meaningful innings.
