The Yankees have a tough series coming up this weekend, not only because they are facing the Blue Jays, but because they have Ivan Nova, Javier Vazquez, and Phil Hughes on the mound. This will be a big test to see which will be reliable for the playoffs.
Here are some notes:
- Nick Swisher is day-to-day after leaving yesterday’s game with stiffness in his knee.
- Alfredo Aceves suffered a setback yesterday and was scratched from his rehab appearance. This could be it for him this season.
- Yankees amateur scouting director, Damon Oppenheimer, is a candidate for the Diamondback’s GM opening.
- Alex Rodriguez has officially dumped his agent Scott Boras.
That’s all for now. I’ll have some more updates later on today so stay tuned.
