The Handling Of The Rotation

Yesterday, the Yankees announced that AJ Burnett, Ivan Nova, and Bartolo Colon would pitch against the Angels this week. It seems like this is what it’s gonna be for at least the next couple of weeks: figuring things out as they go. I don’t really mind this loose use of the starting pitching because it gives them a way to give Freddy Garcia, Bartolo Colon, and CC Sabathia some extra rest. CC will start on Friday with an extra day off and Garcia will start on Sunday with two extra days with Phil Hughes sandwiched in between them. Since the Yanks didn’t make a deal for a starter at the deadline, they’re gonna have to keep the guys who have made them successful (Garcia, Colon, Sabathia) fresh for the end of September and October.
