Hughes scratched by Yankees because of back spasm
Question of the Day
When the Tampa Bay Rays manager woke up, he learned Hector Noesi was going in the first game and Sabathia was pitching the nightcap.
“It had an odor of that,” Maddon said. “I don’t know if that’s exactly what was going on. I’m OK with gamesmanship. I’m into gamesmanship. It’s part of the dance, and I’m good with all that stuff.”
Maddon had lined up his pitchers the way he wanted. Figuring Sabathia (19-8) would start the opener, he slotted James Shields (15-11) for the first game and Jeremy Hellickson (13-10) for the second. He sent both starters home early Tuesday night, then after the end of the game texted them which end of the twinbill they would start.
“I don’t want to keep throwing different thoughts into my pitchers’ heads,” he said.
“It’s kind of lingered on,” Girardi said. “We’re going to have to see how he physically does and if he’s able to make another start for us. I would think that that would be possible.”
Just 5-5 with a 6.00 ERA, Hughes was sidelined from April 15 to July 6 because of an inflamed right shoulder.
NOTES: Tampa RF Ben Zobrist missed Tuesday night’s game, a day after the birth of his daughter, Kruse. He was expected back sometime during the day game.
