Yankees Notes: A-Rod Injured, McAllister Traded, Nova to be Called Up

The Yankees offense had been hot coming out of Detroit, but they were stopped last night by King Felix Hernandez who struck out 11 batters as they lost 6-0.

Here are some notes:

Obviously the biggest news here is that McAllister was dealt to Cleveland. McAllister was once considered a top prospect in the Yankees organization, but the Yankees seem to have soured on him after a poor season in Triple-A this year (8-10, 5.09). This is a case where he might end up being a decent back-of-the-rotation type, but the Yankees don’t need that. They have Nova who they think more highly of now and Dellin Betances, Andrew Brackman, and Manny Banuelos behind him who they also like more. McAllister is worth more to the Yankees as trade fodder than as an actually player.

    So glad to hear that Nova is getting called up, and also that he is going to be used in the rotation. I’m guessing he is going to fill in for Phil Hughes a couple of starts and maybe give the other guys like Javy a day off here and there.
