Igawa skipped, A-Rod shelved
If you haven’t already heard, Kei Igawa will be skipped on Thursday. The Yankees have not immediately announced a replacement but it appears to be Ian Kennedy. Darrell Rasner, Andy Pettitte and Chien-Ming Wang will be the probable pitchers for the Subway Series.
Alex Rodriguez will not play in rehab games this week and will not appear vs. the Mets. The Yankees said that his right quadriceps is improving but it’s not where they need it to be yet.
Diehard Yankees fans shouldn’t need this primer, but if you were a Tampa Bay area resident and opened up your newspaper this morning, here’s what you’d find — a nice little trip down memory lane of the Yankees’ all-time greatest moments and players. It makes for a fun read.
