    Via LoHud -

    Freddy Garcia cut a finger on his pitching hand four or five days ago in a kitchen accident, according to Joe Girardi, so he has been scratched from tomorrow’s start and the decision about who to cut from the rotation will now be delayed. A.J. Burnett will take the start tomorrow, weather permitting, because the forecast sounds bad.

    Amazing that this development was kept quiet for days until Phil Hughes had a solid start today.

      This is a break in the rotation version of musical chairs. If AJ doesn’t step up tomorrow how does anyone make an agrument he belongs in the starting rotation. The hope would have to turn to Hughes stepping up and becoming the second starter.

      Not surprisingly, the game has already been rained out today with rain forecast all day. I wouldn’t be surprised if A.J. just got skipped altogether.
