Nice year for James Paxton, 15-6, 3.82, ERA+ 116. But you have to think the Yanks, when they got him, expected more than a total of 7 innings in 2 postseason starts, don’t you?
He’s got to be able to give more length next time out.
So when WILL next time out be? While Game 3 is scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday) at 4 PM, it is looking like Game 4 could be postponed.
Heavy rains are forecast for all, or most of the day Wednesday. This could work to the Yanks’ benefit, or maybe eventually against it, especially with how hard they are expected to utilize their bullpen. They could get an unscheduled off day between Games 3 and 4. However, there then may NOT be an off day between Games 5 and 6. We’ll see, and Aaron Boone and his coaching staff may need to do some readjusting.
The Yanks need to make a decision on Stanton soon. They could put him on the injured list, activate Voit, but if that is done, Stanton won’t be eligible for the WS roster.
