This is getting ridiculous. The Yankees have already been struggling with their starting pitching due to the calvacade of injuries that has been decimating the staff. The hitlist includes their #1, #2, #5 and #6 starters: Wang (Hamstring), Mussina (Hamstring), Karstens (Broken Leg) and Pavano (Forearm).
So they call up the Golden Boy Phillip Hughes last week, and after a decent performance last week, he completely dominated last night in Texas. He went for 6.1 innings, giving up no hits, and striking out six batters......and he is now out for 4-6 weeks with a hamstring injury. Ugh.
I hear Cashman is now in the market for a jacked knuckleballer with some big league experience who can help right this sinking ship:
