Disabled Arms

Great news From NY as the Yankees have placed both Mike Mussina and Carl Pavano on the disabled list to join fellow starters, Chien-Ming Wang and Jeff Karstens.

Yankees Vet Mike Mussina Joining Teamates on the DL

Missing so many starters for the next following weeks is really going to test the Yankees pitching staff, and the young prospects who are about to be called upon.

With so many injuries to the pitching staff here is who the Yankees will be starting the next following games:

TuesdayChase WrightJust called up from AA Trenton, his pitching has been pretty impressive from what I’ve heard but who knows.

Wednesday – Kei Igawa – He’s been shakey at best…

Thursday – Darrell Rasner – Solid outing last game vs. Oakland going 5.1 scoreless innings…

Friday – Andy Pettite (@ Boston) – Yankees most reliable pitcher so far, hopefully he has a solid game on Friday in the first Yankees/Red Sox battle of 2007.

So, I mean, I can sit here and tell you the Pitching situation could be a lot worse, but I’ll tell you another thing it could be a lot better…

The more and more I read other blogs the more I see how upset some people are the Yanks called up Chase Wright, I think the intention was not to rush up Hughes, who hasnt even been pitching up to par in AAA ball this season.

This next week should be real interesting…

Matsui Hits 15 Day DL, Yanks Call Up Thompson

For only the second time of his career, Hidek Matsui will be back on the DL for his second straight season after straining his left hamstring April 7th versus the Baltimore Orioles.

Matsui Back on the DL

The Yanks are calling up 27 year old outfielder Kevin Thompson and plan to have Johnny Damon ready for the upcoming series against the Twins.

All Praise to Cashman that he didn’t trade Melky Cabrera to the Pirates for RP Mike Gonzalez. Look, our outfield is in need of Cabrera, our bullpen is superb, and Cashman is proving to us again that he really knows what hes doing.

Yankees Current OF:

LF- Cabrera CF- Damon RF- Abreu Backup- Thompson

Ahhh man, if the Yanks could bring back Bernie…
