New York Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild indicated that the team may go with a six-man rotation to open the season to reduce early-season strain on arms. The Yankees have a stretch of 30 games in 31 days starting April 17. The team is already dealing with several injury questions in their starting five. Ps Bryan Mitchell, Esmil Rogers, Adam Warren and Chase Whitley are building up stamina this spring, and each of them could be used as either starters or relievers.
Fantasy Tip: None of the Yankees' options for the sixth rotation spot to begin the season are really worth consideration in standard fantasy baseball leagues, mainly because this scenario is likely to be short-lived. However, whoever is slated to be the sixth rotation arm to start the year may be worth a small investment as a late-round flier in AL-only leagues.
