The Yankees will play simulated games at the stadium on Tuesday and Wednesday.
“You’re going to see all of these guys that didn’t have a chance to get it going in the division series,” Brian Cashman said.
For tomorrow’s game, that means six pitchers facing four batters: Joba Chamberlain, Sergio Mitre, Dustin Moseley, Boone Logan, Dave Robertson and Kerry Wood will pitch to Francisco Cervelli, Greg Golson, Austin Kearns and Ramiro Pena.
Chamberlain, Mitre and Moseley didn’t pitch in the ALDS. Logan, Robertson and Wood did pitch, but they’re all short relievers who were probably on schedule to throw some sort of side session anyway.
I have no idea if the regulars will be playing field like an intrasquad game, or if this will be like a normal sim game with no one in the field and results determined by a coach. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.
The team hasn’t announced who will be pitching or playing in Wednesday’s game. A.J. Burnett might make some sense, but that’s pure speculation.
