Yankees bolster ‘pen with Towers
Josh Towers spent a lot of time at the Rogers Centre wearing a Blue Jays uniform, and now he will get at least a couple of days wearing a Yankees uniform. The right-hander was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday morning to help out in case of emergency.
The Yankees were going to make that move for Monday’s doubleheader but figured it’d be a good idea now, with Chad Gaudin and Joba Chamberlain having pitched short in the first two games.
Speaking of Monday, CC Sabathia will pitch Game 1 vs. the Rays and A.J. Burnett has Game 2. Mariano Rivera threw about 20 pitches in the bullpen here and said he feels “excellent.”
