Big day for Brackman

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Feb 15, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Here are the groups of pitchers in the bullpen today:

1: Aceves, Hughes, Pettitte, Wang

2: Coke, Marte, Ramirez, Tomko

3: Brackman, Jackson, Melancon

4: Claggett, De La Rosa, Hacker, Texeira

This will be the first time Brackman will be able to show the Yankees what he can do. He was rehabbing while in camp last season and never threw off the mound. Since being picked in the first round in 2007, he has thrown only 31.2 innings. Those came in the Hawaiian Winter League last fall.

“Today is a big day for me,” he said. “I just need to get out there and pitch.”

Brackman was 270 when he came to camp last year. He is 232 now.
