No big surprises here, but Joe Girardi has officially announced his rotation for the Baltimore series.
Friday: A.J. Burnett
Saturday: CC Sabathia
Sunday: Andy Pettitte
If Pettitte can’t go for some reason — he’s scheduled to throw a bullpen tomorrow — then Javier Vazquez will make Sunday’s start. Assuming everything goes to play, though, Vazquez is a full-time reliever.
Girardi said he expects to stay on rotation after the Baltimore series, with a five-man rotation of Burnett, Sabathia, Pettitte, Ivan Nova and Phil Hughes.
