There is some great information in today’s pre-game notes from the LoHud Yankees blog. I’ll do my best to distill the crucial information here, but I suggest you check it out in its entirety.
- Russell Martin is sitting today due to back stiffness, but Girardi does not anticipate a prolonged absence
- Brian Cashman expects David Phelps to rejoin the team fairly soon
- Ryota Igarashi was recalled to take Andy Pettitte’s roster spot
For those of you who may be interested in prospecting, Diamondbacks prospect Trevor Bauer will be making his Major League debut tonight, against the Atlanta Braves. I will certainly be bouncing back and forth between his half-innings and the Yankees game.
