McCarthy to debut Wednesday; Whitley in bullpen for now

Brandon McCarthyHere’s the upcoming plan for the Yankees reconstructed rotation.

Monday: Shane Greene
Tuesday: Masahiro Tanaka
Wednesday: Brandon McCarthy
Thursday: TBA

Because McCarthy is in line to make his Yankees debut on the day Chase Whitley was scheduled to start, Whitley will move into the bullpen for the time being. If the Yankees don’t need out of the bullpen, then he could be a candidate to start Thursday or during the weekend Baltimore series.

“Right now he’ll be in the bullpen until we get this ironed out,” Joe Girardi said. “If we don’t need him out of the bullpen, he could start again for us. … A lot of this depends on tomorrow.”

Speaking of tomorrow, that will be Shane Greene’s second big league appearance but his first big league start. He got off to a slow start this season, but in his past two Triple-A starts, he’s pitched 13 scoreless innings with six hits. Given the fact that Whitley is approaching his career-high in innings and hasn’t looked particularly sharp lately, it seems there could be at least a chance for Greene to impress the Yankees on Monday, earn another start over the weekend, and possibly move Whitley into a bullpen role that should keep his workload in check.

“Every opportunity is an opportunity to shine and get more opportunities,” Girardi said.

By the way, the Yankees will eventually go back to a full bench, but that won’t happen tomorrow. Girardi said he wants to carry 13 pitchers until he has enough guys rested and available to feel comfortable carrying only 12. At some point, the Yankees will add a bat to replace Alfonso Soriano, we just don’t know when or who.

    This bullpen is ready to implode. Three relief pitchers today. All of differing abilities and roles. Each gave up a run. The Yanks aren’t good enough to sustain that. It seems Warren and Betances look worse every time they are out there now.

    Maybe the All Star break will give them a blow. But I think the Yanks are in dire need of at least one more arm. One good arm today coming in in the 7th would have made this game a cinch. Instead it was a nail-biter.

    I talked about this in the morning. If Greene pitches well Monday, the Yanks have a chance for a three part upgrade. Greene replaces Nuno. McCarthy replaces Whitley. And Whitely to the pen.

    Boy, an effective Whitley in the 7th inning today would have worked perfect. Could have pitched 7th and 8th and wouldn’t have needed Drob for the ninth.

    Starter and Bullpen depth tied at the hip now.

    As Blake said, an ugly win but better than a loss any day.

    No doubt Tulo is putting up big numbers again this year. Not sure I want his $16M contract for someone turning 30 yo this year, signed through 2021? and an injury history that leaves me feeling queezy as he ages.

    What is it about the road and Yankee bats?

    Ok, yesterday was real bad, but overall, the Yanks hit well in this series. And if you look just at their road production, this is actually a pretty good offensive team. If the Yanks could score at home as well as they score on the road, they would be about 5th or 6th in the American League is scoring. Not great but above average. If the Yanks played all their games at home, they’d be last in the American League in runs scored.

    Is it the park? Is the team too tight at home? The aren’t quite as bad at home at the Mets but they are real bad. Worst in the American League.

    What gives?

    It is very odd the way the yanks have played at home this year. The park fits guys like Ellsbury and McCann perfectly where they should succeed.

    Yanks usually are dominant at home, where playing .500 at road would get them to playoffs. Hopefully things change in 2nd half.

    If Whitley can duplicate what Warren gives, Warren can be stretched out to start.
    The pen is the key to who starts.

  7. MTU July 6th, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    If the Yankees are going to make a real run they’ll need a #2 type starter.

    And a bat.

    If you want to hit the tennis courts, do it fashionably with a magenta, orange or chartreuse bag. Functionality is the key here, of course. Tumi’s bags offer enough space for apparel and footwear, as well as a compartment for your racquet, rubberised mesh side pockets to hold balls, a water bottle pocket, removable shoulder strap and niche compartments for essentials like a phone or PDA..
