Some Pitching UpdatesPosted: April 29, 2011
Here are some updates on some pitchers in the Yankees organization and other stuff:
- Phil Hughes will go to see the specialist in St. Louis on Monday to confirm whether he has TOS.
- Kevin Millwood might have kissed his chances of pitching in pinstripes good-bye with a bad start for Triple A Scranton last night. His line was 2 IP, 7 H, 6 ER, 1 BB, 4 K. We’ll see what happens on Sunday though.
- Via Marc Carig, the Yanks say that Carlos Silva, after going through a conditioning program since signing, is now ready for extended Spring Training. His opt-out clause doesn’t come into play until June so we’ll see then.
- Rafael Soriano has apparently turned to Mike Gonzalez, Orioles relief pitcher and former teammate with the Braves, to help him with his struggles. The two became good friends when they were co-closers for Atlanta in 2009.
- MLB Trade Rumors posted a list of all of the free agents after the 2012 season. I know it seems far away, but it’s interesting. The pitchers include Zach Greinke, Francisco Liriano, Matt Cain, and many more.
