Pavano to miss a start

Carl Pavano will not start for the New York Yankees on Sunday at Detroit because the right-hander has a sore shoulder.


The Yankees gave Pavano a four-year deal worth about $40 million to bolster their staff, but he is just 4-6 with a 4.77 ERA this season and does not have a win since May 22. He has allowed 129 hits, second-most in the AL, in 100 innings.


I wanted to say I told you so, but why there's no point to it

Pavs might have been an All Star if he stayed here. He was awesome at the Pro.



There's also a difference between the Yankee defense, and the Marlin defense.




As far as Sturtze starting, I'd take Sturtze any day of the week over Randy Johnson and Carl Pavano.

The MRI taken on Yankees right-hander Carl Pavano's sore right shoulder on Tuesday was negative, though it is uncertain when he will pitch again.


Pavano was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, and New York brought up 20-year-old outfielder Melky Cabrera from the minors.


Cabrera began the season with the Thunder and hit .267 with nine homers and 44 RBIs in 77 games. He was promoted to Triple-A Columbus on June 28 and batted. 324 with three homers and 11 RBI in nine games.


With Bernie Williams' defense in decline, New York has struggled to find a center fielder, trying Hideki Matsui, Tony Womack and Bubba Crosby there.


Pavano missed his last start after complaining of discomfort in his shoulder.


Pavano is 4-6 with a 4.77 ERA in 17 starts.


One candidate to take Pavano's place for his scheduled Saturday start is left-hander Darrell May, who was acquired last week from the Padres in the trade for Paul Quantrill.


May, who went 1-3 with a 5.61 ERA for San Diego, tossed seven solid innings of one-run ball, striking out seven in his first game with Triple-A Columbus on Monday night.


"That's a possibility. If we don't have Pavano, we can look at some options," Torre said on Wednesday. "Sturtze is one, but it really hamstrung us, having to go through the whole bullpen. We'll look for a starter for Saturday if it's not Pavano."





If the return date for Pavano is unknown, and he misses more than a couple of starts, will the Yankees pull the trigger on a trade for a starter? :plain
