Girardi: Gordon Will Start Tomorrow

After their second straight 12-4 beating of the Rangers, Joe Girardi announced that Brain Gordon will start for the Yankees tomorrow afternoon vs. the Rangers.
"[Gordon's] had an outstanding season in Triple-A for the Phillies," Girardi said after his team's win Wednesday. "It is his day to start, he's actually on his regular turn. Seen a little film on him, not a ton, but a little bit. Seems to throw a lot of strikes, has good command, has a curveball, slider, changeup, and he's a veteran guy. I think he's almost 33 years old, and so we had Noesi up tonight, and he's more built up than Hector because of the way we had to use Hector."
Good luck, Brian. Maybe he can be this year's Aaron Small.
