Pitching matchups at Kansas City

My parents saw Yankee Stadium for the first time last week. They flew out for a few days, then we all made our way to Missouri yesterday. Mom and Dad headed for the farm in Sikeston, and I came over here to Kansas City for the beginning of the Yankees midwest road trip. Two small bits of news — well, one bit of news and one worthwhile photo — from Twitter yesterday:

1. Dellin Betances is heading to Triple-A. Following quickly behind Manny Banuelos, the Yankees tall right-hander is taking the final step in the Yankees minor league system. Betances, Banuelos, Jesus Montero and Alex Rodriguez on the same minor league team? Probably worth seeing.

2. Brett Gardner stays comfortable on the team charter. This picture comes from Phil Hughes, who got a little creative with Twitter last night and decided to give a glimpse of the team flight to K.C. Well done.

As for the rotation… Joe Girardi said everyone is pushed back a day after yesterday’s rainout, so it looks like the Yankees starters will lineup this way against the Royals.
