Add minor league journeyman Brian Gordon to the list of candidates to start tomorrow against the Rangers.Who?
The Yankees signed the 32-year-old righty after he exercised an out in his contract with the Phillies’ Triple-A affiliate, Lehigh Valley. Gordon was 5-0 with a 1.14 ERA in 12 games (nine starts), and he said yesterday there is a chance he could start tomorrow in place of the injured Bartolo Colon.
“I don’t know if it’s 100 percent,” Gordon told the YES Network. “I was told to be mentally prepared to start [tomorrow]. That could change.”
The article goes on to explain about Gordon's story. In his career Gordon is 25-13 with a 3.09 ERA in 168 games (22 starts), all in Double and Triple A.
