PREGAME NOTES:

  • Ian Kennedy pitched his one inning for Scranton this afternoon and is already out of the game (His line: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER -- 12 pitches, 7 strikes). Kennedy is now slated to return to the rotation on Thursday against Tampa, contrary to the initial erroneous report by one George King.
  • Pete Abe reports that A-Rod's MRI has revealed that his quad injury is not healed enough to start playing rehab games. He will not be activated this week and is officially OUT for the Mets' series. Okay, that sucks.
  • The Yankee bullpen has been outstanding of late compiling a 1.05 ERA with an 0.70 WHIP over their last 8 games (25.2 IP, 11 H, 3 ER, 7 BB, 17 K). Keep in mind all three runs were given up by Joba Chamberlain with one swing of the bat by David Dellucci last Monday night.
  • Andy Pettitte is a lifetime 14-3, 3.62 ERA, 1.44 WHIP in 23 games (22 starts) against the Rays. He is 1-1, 4.50 ERA, 1.83 WHIP in 2 starts against them in 2008.
  • Matt Garza is a lifetime 0-1, 6.75 ERA, 1.95 WHIP in 2 games (one start) against the Yanks.
