Javier Vazquez Shuts Down Phillies
Javier Vazquez had four strike outs in two innings and allowed a homer off Jimmy Rollins in the first against the Phillies. This was Vazquez's first game for the spring and he looked very good. He was on the Yankees in 2004 then was traded back to them this year. The Yankees rotation looks pretty good and they needed to fix up the back end which they did. Vazquez could be the answer for the Yankees, in his whole career he pitched 2490 innings and 2253 strike outs. This is a great pitching rotation: C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Brunette, Andy Pettitte, and Javier Vazquez, the fifth spot is still in battle between Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes and another competitor Sergio Mitre. I can't wait to see them in the regular season.
