Quick Hit: CC Sabathia’s Simulated Game & Opening Day Starter

Interestingly enough, and not coincidental because there are no such things as coincidences, both Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia will be on the mound this afternoon for the New York Yankees. These two pitchers are the two obvious choices for the Yankees Opening Day starters and if both pitchers pitched on their normal four days rest would line up to pitch the opener on March 6th.

Sabathia pitched a 30 pitch simulated game today while Masahiro Tanaka will start against the Atlanta Braves in their Grapefruit League game. Who will start on Opening Day? Nobody knows right now but it looks like the Yankees are at least open to the idea of having Tanaka start that game if he looks healthy and is up to the task. That is encouraging to me as a fan because we may start to see some change in how the team does things relying on the younger “unknown” over the veteran. Then again we’re still a little over three weeks away from the games counting again so a lot can change between then and now.

Stay tuned…
