ph_134321.jpgIt looks like the Opening Day pitcher for the Yankees could be the Rajah of Rehab himself, Carl Anthony Pavano.

Mike Mussina pitched today and will start again on Thursday. Joe Torre just said they would not start him on April 2 on three days’ rest.

Andy Pettitte (sore back) needs another bullpen and a start before he’s ready. There is little chance he will be ready for April 2.

That leaves Pavano, who is scheduled to make his final start of the spring on Tuesday. That would line him up to face Tampa Bay at Yankee Stadium.

Torre said the staff would discuss the situation on Monday. But right now, it looks like Pavano.

What a shocking turn of events.

The good news is Pavano would be pitching on 643 days of rest.
