The aftermath of Kyle Farnsworth trying to barehand a comebacker yesterday, via the Post:
Farnsworth needed three stitches between his right ring and pinkie fingers but said he doesn’t expect to miss significant time. It happened before.
“In (Class) A ball. It happened in the same exact spot. I got four stitches. I didn’t miss any time. They just taped it together and I still pitched,” recalled Farnsworth, who seemed more relaxed than his manager.
Since May 17th, Farnworth has pitched in 15 games for the Yankees and has an ERA of 6.00 in that span. Batters facing him during this time have fashioned a BA/OBP/SLG line of .345/.415/.724 against him as well.
Maybe the Yankees should think twice about running Kyle right back out there after this injury?
