CC Sabathia, not David Phelps, to start tonight at Orioles
BALTIMORE – The Yankees have adjusted their rotation, sending left-hander CC Sabathia to the mound on Friday against the Orioles in place of right-hander David Phelps.
Pitching coach Larry Rothschild said that Sabathia was always scheduled to pitch tonight, but the team gave the wrong probable pitchers to the PR staff.
Phelps will pitch Saturday, Rothschild said.
The Orioles are starting left-hander T.J. McFarland in the opener of a three-game series at Camden Yards.
