Updates on the rotation and Damon

Just talked to my colleague Brian Heyman. Here is what he’s reporting:

The pitchers will all be moved back a day. So Pettitte on Thursday, Moose on Friday, Igawa on Saturday and Rasner on Sunday. Pavano won’t pitch until the team gets to Minnesota on Monday.

Johnny Damon was out of the lineup with a sore right calf. Robinson Cano was hitting leadoff and Melky Cabrera was in center.

“It felt like cramps the other day,” Damon said, “but this is definitely much worse than that.”

Now, before you panic, Damon tends to overplay injuries. This is a guy who played last season with a broken bone in his foot. Joe Torre sounded far more optimistic. This seems to be a day-to-day kind of thing.

Before anybody asks, they’re not bringing Bernie off his couch in Westchester. That ship not only has sailed, you can’t see it any more.
