- No make-up date has been set for last night’s rainout. Baltimore doesn’t come back to New York until the end of July for a three-game set from Friday, July 29, through Sunday, July 31, and while the Yankees have Thursday the 28th off, the Orioles do not. The Orioles’ final trip of the season to the Stadium is Monday, September 5, through Wednesday, September 7, and both teams have Thursday, September 8 off. While the Yankees have to fly out for a west coast swing starting Friday, September 9, it seems like it would behoove the two teams to pick Thursday the 8th at 1pm. Surely an afternoon game on Thursday still gives the Yankees enough time to travel to LA and not feel ultra-jetlagged come Friday night.
- Tuesday night’s starting pitchers — A.J. Burnett and Chris Tillman — have been pushed back to tonight, which means that Phil Hughes will get an extra day of rest as he takes the Thursday night start in place of Ivan Nova. Jake Arrieta will stay on schedule to pitch Thursday evening for the O’s.
- Freddy Garcia is still expected to make his starting debut at some point this weekend, as the Yankees will play five games in a row for the first time this season, though whether he is still slated to pitch Friday night against Texas remains to be seen.
- Speaking of Texas, Josh Hamilton fractured his shoulder and will be on the shelf of 6-8 weeks. Tough break for the lightning-hot Rangers, although with the way their squad has been swinging the bats and pitching, I’m not sure they’ll even skip that much of a beat. You could have worse problems than having to replace Hamilton (.375 wOBA, 44 plate appearances) with David Murphy (.411 wOBA, 18 PAs).
- Dan Haren, who the Yankees may have tried to trade for last July, threw a one-hit shutout against the Indians, halting the Tribe’s eight-game winning streak.
- Pedro Feliciano experienced a “slight pinch” in his arm during yesterday’s throwing session, and will undergo another MRI. It sounds like we may not be seeing Pedro for some time. In other bullpen injury news, Luis Ayala apparently strained his lat and is headed to the DL. No word yet on who is replacing him.
