They haven't been bad often, but when they have the Yankee bullpen has been really bad this season. The prime example of that is Cesar Cabral, who gave up 3 runs on 3 hits and 3 hit batsmen last night without recording an out. That was enough of a nothing in his all-or-nothing performance trend to earn him a demotion, which came by way of DFA after the game. Matt Daley was called up from Triple-A to take his place and could see action as early as tonight.
Because of the rainout earlier in the week, the Yankees will need a 6th starter for tomorrow's game. All indications are that Vidal Nuno will get that start and when he does it will likely be his last appearance for the Major League club for a while. David Robertson is scheduled to pitch in an ExST game today and if he does so without any problems, he'll likely be activated off the DL on Tuesday. With Nuno needing a few days off after making a start, he's a shoo-in to get sent down to Triple-A to clear a 25-man spot for D-Rob.
