Yankees consider six-man rotation when Masahiro Tanaka returns
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Yankees could utilize a six-man rotation upon the return of right-hander Masahiro Tanaka, per ESPN. Pitching coach Larry Rothschild indicated that arrangement could continue through 2015 as the team looks to protect Tanaka and his ailing elbow.

"We are going to look at every avenue possible," Rothschild said. "It doesn't mean we are going to do it."

Rothschild added that the Yankees could use a six-man rotation not just to protect Tanaka, but his other starters in the wake of the epidemic of arm problems in the major leagues.

Odrisamer Despaigne: Hitters have adjusted against me
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Padres rookie starter Odrisamer Despaigne has admitted that hitters have made an adjustment against him, resulting in some tough outings.

Among them was Friday night, when he surrendered three runs on five hits in five innings in Arizona for his second straight loss. Despaigne has yielded 20 earned runs on 39 hits in his last 31 innings pitched covering six starts to raise his ERA from a sparkling 1.31 to 3.44.

"The first five starts, hitters had no idea about me," Despaigne told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "I was the new guy. The last six of them, it's been different. Guys are making more adjustments, seeing me the second time, getting a better idea of how I like to work."

Despaigne found success in his early starts releasing the ball from several different arm angles.

Travis Snider raking while Gregory Polanco learning
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Travis Snider has continued to take away at-bats from far-more-ballyhooed Pirates rookie Gregory Polanco.

Despite an 0-for-5 night on Friday, Snider has earned the playing time. He owned an 11-game hitting streak previously in which he had six multi-hit games, scored seven runs and rose his batting average from .242 to .277. Polanco, on the other hand, has just one hit in his last 27 at-bats.

"Snider's been torrid," Clift Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Friday. "Thirty-five games left, another day, another opportunity for Polanco to get some work done. The good side of it is when we've  had some time to settle him down a little bit, when he has been back plugged in he's been very fresh and usually shows a lot of improvement."

Hurdle added that he wants Polanco to revert to the swing that proved successful upon his promotion from the minors. He began the season on an 11-game hitting streak that vaulted his average to .365 and allowed him to score 11 runs.

"I think we're trying to show him the fact once his front foot hits, that his hands are set in a position," Hurdle said. "There's been, I think, a little more movement than necessary with his hands. ... Sometimes you don't know whether it's fatigue, whether it's anxiety, whether it's the ptiches, but they're pitching him up a lot more. That's no secret. He's doing a lot more up-chasing than he had done when he first got here."
