No decision yet on Joba

Just spoke to Brian Cashman. He is deep into draft preparations and has not spoken to Joe Girardi about the pitching plans for Monday and Tuesday. They need to see how Joba feels first.

“We’ll talk about it tomorrow,” Cashman said.

Cashman said the Yankees are having a tryout at the Stadium on Saturday and have players coming in from around the country. There’s another event on Sunday at Legends Field.

I also asked Cashman about Dellin Betances, who is on the disabled list. He has a “tired shoulder” and was shut down as a precaution. This season has been the most he has thrown over an extended period of time. The numbers bear that out:

2005 High school in Brooklyn: 41.2 innings

2006 rookie ball: 23.1 innings

2007 Class A ball: 25 innings

2008 Class A ball: 55 innings

What’s the world coming to? You get the GM of the Yankees on the phone and the conversation turns to the draft and Class A pitchers.
