|The Bombers are back at .500 after Sunday’s crushing of the Twins in Minnesota, and as long as the pitching holds up they should have no trouble continuing to win. Small will be off the DL and supplying his talents to the bullpen next month, and Dotel will join him in June. Johnson and Mussina are pitching like their old selves thus far, and Chacon and Wang have proved steady as well. Wright and Pavano are sucking up payroll without giving much in return, but I’m optimistic that the Yankees’ remaining pitching and impressive offense will be able to compensate with little trouble. They’re heading to Toronto this week, and then they’ll be back in the Bronx for series against Baltimore, Tampa Bay and Toronto, hopefully bringing their game up before heading to Fenway to battle the Sox.
The season is underway in the minor leagues, as well, and the Yankees’ clubs around the minors are all over the board. Here are the latest happenings on the farm:
