Yankees could go with six-man rotation for a while


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/17/2015) The Yankees begin a stretch on Friday of 30 games in 31 days, so manager Joe Girardi said the team is considering adding a sixth starter to the rotation, reports MLB.com.

"Weather could play a role, so you just have to wait and see, but it's something that's in the back of our minds. We've kind of prepared ourselves for it."

Pitchers Bryan Mitchell , Esmil Rogers and Chase Whitley are among the candidates to fill the potentional sixth-man spot.

A's RP Evan Scribner starting to earn more confidence from Melvin


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Athletics pitcher Evan Scribner is slowly starting to see his role in the A's bullpen expand.

While Scribner started the season as a long reliever, manager Bob Melvin said he's starting to see a more valuable role for Scribner, reports MLB.com.

Scribner has pitched 7 2/3 innings and produced a 2.35 ERA this season and Melvin said he may consider him for a set-up role.

"With [Dan] Otero being the primary right-handed setup guy, we're a little bit short one guy than we've had in the past," Melvin said. "With [Tyler] Clippard in the closer role now, we've usually used two righties, and [Ryan] Cook was one of those guys, so it could be Scribner."

Boyer hasn't pitched since April 12 when he gave up three runs on four hits to the White Sox without recording an out.
