• Hinske & Bruney In, Guzman & Cervelli Out

    Joel Sherman has the details.

    Eric Hinske makes sense. You’re going to need to pinch-hit for the pitcher in Philly. Brian Bruney? When was the last time he pitched to a major league hitter in game conditions, four weeks ago? That’s too long. Shoot, that’s an accident waiting to happen.

      Rather have Guzman than Bruney. Two pinch runners makes us much more dangerous in the late innings.

      With Gaudin most likely getting a start the Yankees need a new “mop up” reliever. If any parts of games 1-4 become a blow out expect to see Bruney throwing.

      Other than that, I wouldn’t worry about him getting any high-leverage outings.
