Gaudin to start Thursday
RHP Chad Gaudin will start Thursday at Toronto instead of RHP Sergio Mitre, the Yankees have announced. They want to be cautious with Mitre as he comes off Tommy John surgery. They’ll revisit the rotation when that Sept. 7 doubleheader gets a little closer. Mitre tossed on the field today and said he felt OK, but acknowledged he was “questionable” to start vs. the Blue Jays.
“Our biggest concern is, coming off the injury he came off of, we don’t want him favoring that,” Girardi said.
