Aceves: Shoulder feels better

Alfredo Aceves had not even picked up a baseball in four days because of his fatigued right shoulder, but the Yankees reliever made 20 throws off a bullpen mound and also long-tossed at Tropicana Field on Wednesday. He said the ball was “jumping out of my hand.”

“I feel great,” Aceves said. “Today in the morning when I woke up, I felt strong in my shoulder. I thank God.”

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that he would probably not use Aceves on Wednesday but that he should be available on Thursday at Chicago, allowing them to consider dropping one of their 13 pitchers and make a move to add a bat off the bench.

Girardi said that the Yankees are “much closer” to addressing that move either Thursday or Friday. The preference is to add a right-handed bat for that series. Shelley Duncan’s name has come up in that discussion, but it is not the only option.

Why is Girardi putting Bruney in to pitch the 9th. I know we’re leading 6-0 but Bruney has been useless since coming back from injury. Six runs could vanish in a hurry with the Rays. Get him out of there and for my money he needs to be traded or sent to the minors to get in some more innings and correct whatever his mechanical problems have been since coming back from injury. Hopefully Girardi will put Mo in before we blow this one.
