The Yankees need to call up a starter to pitch Tuesday. That pitcher would likely also face the Red Sox on Sunday.
Based on the minor-league rotations, here are your three choices:
LHP Chase Wright: Last pitched on April 11. He has been dynamite, throwing 14 scoreless innings and allowing four hits. He has walked one and struck out 19. He’s also on the 40-man roster.
RHP Phil Hughes: Last pitched April 12. He has allowed seven runs on nine hits in 10 innings. Not on the 40-man roster. I also do not think the Yankees would mess with their development plan for him.
RHP Tyler Clippard: Last pitched April 11. He’s been OK (0-1, 4.00) in two starts. He is not on the 40-man roster.
My guess would be Wright. He is off to a great start and they wouldn’t have to risk losing a player. It would be quite a rise for Wright, who spent six seasons in rookie or Class A ball before starting this season with Trenton.
