Let's Cut to the CHASE Tonight! (puns=gold)
Tuesday, April 17, 2007
chase wright. right. write.Wright's coach in Tampa, Greg Pavlik, is quoted as saying "he probably threw strikes, but probably walked a few more than he wanted to" about Wright. If that's not the stupidest thing you've heard today, it's time for you to hang around smarter people.

Thanks to the rare and apparently very contagious injury bug that has been spreading throughout the Yankees' clubhouse like the plague and has caused a rash of unfortunately-timed simultaneous injuries, tonight's game against Cleveland will feature a debut from 24-year-old Chase Wright. I'd venture to guess that most of us have not heard much about this lad since Prince Phil Hughes gets all the press (and the ladies' hearts), so here are his vital stats:

Age: 24
Throws: Left
Bats (hahahahaha): Left
Experience: 5 years in the Yankees farm system, from Gulf Coast to AA.
Career Highlights: Led the GCL with 39 walks in 2002; allowed just 2 homers in 81 innings during the 2003 season; had had arthroscopic surgery performed in August of '04 (not so much a "highlight", but finding info on him was tricky); led the Class-A Charleston team and ranked 4th among all Yankees minor leaguers with 110 strikeouts in 2005; and went 12-3 with a 1.88 ERA in 37 games (14 starts) for Class-A Tampa and was named Florida State League "Pitcher of the Year" in 2006.
2007: In his two starts at Trenton so far this year, he went 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA, 1 walk and 19 strikeouts in 14 innings pitched.

Any pitcher's first start is bound to be stressful (for them and for us watching!), and a short-notice call-up for a youngster has the potential to create nervousness that could rival that felt by an acrophobiac (me) being forced to go up a ski lift in a blizzard (again, me). I'll be keeping a close eye on Chase and a tight grasp on my optimism, but at the very least the lad ought to be able to stick it out long enough to give the bullpen a rest.

I hope.
