“I am not in it so I don’t know,’’ Yankees GM Brian Cashman said of the bullpen market.
Joba pitched again last night for the High-A Tampa Yankees and could potentially pitch again today as they want to test him on back-to-back days before activating him. If he does pitch again today, he could be back as soon as Friday for the Boston series.
With Joba coming back the Yankees have no big need to test out the bullpen market. The pen has struggled a bit lately, but adding Joba to it means that Cody Eppley can go back to pitching meaningless innings and they can get rid of Chad Qualls.
