Aardsma walks a batter, throws scoreless inning in latest rehab outing


In his latest minor league rehab appearance with Double-A Trenton, right-hander David Aardsma walked a batter in an otherwise uneventful inning. The runner was thrown out trying to steal second and the other two outs came on fly balls. Ten of his 17 pitches were strikes.

Aardsma pitched last night, and this was the first time he appeared in back-to-back games as part of his rehab from Tommy John surgery. His 30-day rehab window expires on Wednesday and the minor league season will be over tomorrow no later than tomorrow, so it’ll be interesting to see what the Yankees do with him next week.

    Do the Yankees have to move him off the 60-day DL and back onto the 40-man, or can they simply tell him to go home and then they can figure out when to put him on the 40-man after the season is over?

    I think they call him up, what do they have to lose? The guys we have in there aren’t getting it done. Call him and Montgomery up and take a shot that they perform better than the ones we have.
