The Yankees announced yesterday that their fifth starter, Phil Hughes will be skipped the first time through the order and will not start against the Rays the second series of the season. Here is the updated pitching probables for the first week…
Tue April 6: James Shields v Kevin Millwood (Bal)
Wed April 7: Matt Garza v Jeremy Guthrie (Bal)
Thur April 8: Jeff Niemann v Brian Matusz (Bal)
Fri April 9: David Price v Javier Vazquez (NYY)
Sat April 10: Wade Davis v CC Sabathia (NYY)
Sun April 11: James Shields v AJ Burnett (NYY)
All of the sudden, that series versus the Yankees doesn’t look so winnable.
