Javy gets another chance

With a little more rest and – the Yankees hope – a clearer head, Javier Vazquez will have another chance to turn around his disappointing start tonight against the Tigers at Comerica Park.

“I’m feeling good,” Vazquez said. “I’m looking forward to [Tuesday]. It seems like a long time since I last pitched.”
Well, it has been. Vazquez last pitched on May 1 against the White Sox, lasting three-plus innings and hit for five runs on seven hits. Inbetween starts, he’s worked with pitching coach Dave Eiland and thrown a pair of bullpen sessions that were a little more vigorous than usual.
“I tried to be close to 100 percent, game speed,” Vazquez said. “Usually my bullpens are nice and easy. This one, I pushed it a little bit.”
What will the net effect be? It’s impossible to know for sure, but at the very least, Yankees manager Joe Girardi thinks Vazquez might come back with a clearer head.
“I hope so,” he said. “That was the idea of giving him the time to slow things down and get back on track. You never really know until you get out there, but I’ve said all along that I believe Javy is going to help us. He’s gotten off to a slow start and he has an opportunity to turn that around for us.”
