Vazquez’s start pushed back
Via Ben Shpigel of the NY Times:
After pitching poorly in four of his five starts for the Yankees this season, Javier Vazquez will have his next outing pushed back. Instead of pitching Friday night in Boston, Vazquez is scheduled to start Monday night in Detroit.
“We’ve got to find a way to get him back on line,” Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman said. “It won’t be easy and it probably won’t be quick, but he’s going to do everything he can to get this back in the right direction.”
Phil Hughes will start on Friday in Boston, and he will be followed by C.C. Sabathia and A.J. Burnett.
Definitely not the wrong move, but, right now, Detroit is a tougher offensive team than Boston. Hopefully, after some mechanical tinkering, that won’t matter and Vazquez will pitch like he can against the Tigers.
