Brian Gordon came out of no where to make a couple emergency starts for the Yankees over the past few week and just as fast as he came he is gone. The Yankees sent Gordon to the SK Wyverns for cash considerations, according to Chad Jennings of the Journal News.
Gordon, 32, made two starts for the Yankees and put up a 5.23 ERA over 10.1 innings. He was not bad, but certainly not great either. It’s good for the Yankees to get something out of him. With the return of Bartolo Colon and Phil Hughes Gordon is no longer needed and Ivan Nova would certainly get the call to start before him. Hector Noesi and David Phelps would also be options to get an emergency start.
