While confirming that New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia and Rookie of the Year candidate Ivan Nova will be two of his ALDS starters, manager Joe Girardi refused to close the door on A.J. Burnett's possibly starting a game.
In an effort to have CC Sabathia lined up to start Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Sept. 30 at Yankee Stadium, he will not make another start in the regular season, New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.
With A.J. Burnett having his "typical terrible August," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said that the pitcher's five-year, $82.5 million contract will not prevent him from being dropped from the rotation.
