Steve took a look at scheduling a Wang return to the rotation yesterday. He concludes that we may be waiting a little bit until Wang gets a chance to start again. With Joe Girardi backing up Joba Chamberlain as a starting pitcher, the demotion to replace Wang looks to target Phil Hughes.
From David Pinto:
Erik Boland posts the Yankees lineup, which includes Berroa at third, Gardner in center, and Melky Cabrera in leftfield. Damon and Matsui are on the bench. The Indians are throwing a bad left-handed pitcher tonight, Jeremy Sowers, one that right-handers eat up. So Girardi takes the opportunity to rest his older [...]

Mendoza was used as a spot starter, long reliever, and late inning specialist on a regular basis, filling all three [...]
Chien Ming Wang had what has to be considered his best outing of the year yesterday. He pitched 3 scoreless innings, his stuff was sharp, he kept his 2 seamer down and threw plenty of strikes (28/42 66%). Ground ball-flyball ratio was 4-1, that’s vintage Wang right there. Wang himself said it was the best [...]
This may not be a big deal, but as I was reading Lane Meyer of Nomaas’s excellent interview with Damon Oppenheimer, director of scouting for the Yankees, this response jumped out at me:
Lane Meyer: Last we spoke there were no budgetary constraints vs. prior years due to the economy or other things [...]
