The Card Game

with 6 comments

10 AM  Tuesday is the official time for WC Rosters  picked this stuff up  ay RAB

Chris Capuano, Caleb Cotham, Nick Rumbelow, Branden Pinder, and Jose Pirela confirmed they are not on the wildcard game roster. Nick Goody and Chris Martin also had their lockers cleared out, indicating they’re not on the roster either. Cotham, Rumbelow, Pinder, and Pirela will go to Tampa to work out and stay sharp in case they’re needed later in the postseason. Capuano will remain with the team in New York. [Jennings, Brendan Kuty]
Also not on the wildcard game roster: Chasen Shreve. Hard to believe given how good he was in the first half. Based on all that, it appears James Pazos, Andrew Bailey, and Bryan Mitchell will be in the wildcard game bullpen alongside Andrew Miller, Dellin Betances, Justin Wilson, and Adam Warren. [Marly Rivera]
Both Slade Heathcott and Rico Noel said they believe they are on the wildcard game roster. Also, the Yankees have at least tossed around the idea of starting John Ryan Murphy and Chris Young tomorrow night because Dallas Keuchel dominates lefties. [Jennings, Buster Olney]
Brian Cashman said the Yankees hope to replace departed assistant GM Billy Eppler internally, but they will also look outside the organization “because there are some talented people out there.” [Joel Sherman]

Joel Sherman Scouting Report

Keuchel is a better Jimmy Key: athletic, great fielder, repeatable delivery, pinpoint location, groundball-inducing maestro, superb changeup, fearless. The unknown is the short rest. In 2013, he started two days after an 11-pitch relief outing. But between starts he has never gone shorter than four days.

  3. Its better not to read the scouting report,Keuchel dominated them twice,their only hope he is on 3 days rest for the first time. I was shocked to hear CC checked into rehab the day before the playoffs! I just think the timing is very curious,wonder what precipitated it. I listened the the press conferences of GeniusJoe and Cashman,just a lot of bs,no real facts on why it happened at this time.

    • I agree Big D. Very strange it happens now, of all times. I don’t have a lot of faith that they can get past tomorrow, but if they do, this will hurt. Soup Bone was pitching much better since he started wearing the brace. Eventually, it’ll all come out in the wash.
