For what it’s worth, Meredith Marakovits notes that Vidal Nuno is listed on the roster as a starting pitcher now. As I mentioned yesterday, Nuno is the only pitcher on the Yankees’ roster that’s stretched out enough to start for a reasonable number of innings. The plan is likely to start him against the Angels, and then switch him with David Phelps to gain the platoon advantage. As Phelps builds up his pitch count, the Yankees will probably make the real decision on who becomes the regular starter. I also expect to see Manny Banuelos bumped to Scranton or Trenton soon.
Anyway, here’s tonight’s lineup against the Red Sox.
