Yanks take gamble on Proctor

Scott Proctor that is and they will take the "gamble" and have him report to Scranton Wilkes Barre after he was released by the Atlanta Braves.  You remember the deal - July 31, 2007, the Bombers send a worn out Scott Proctor to the Dodgers for one time prospect Wilson Betiment.  Well that deal didn't work out but The Yanks later sent Betiment to the Chisox for Nick Swisher.  In between Proctor had Tommy John surgery.

Cut with a knife

Freddy Garcia has been scratched from his scheduled start Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays because of a cut on a finger sustained in a kitchen accident four or five days ago.

A.J. Burnett will start in his place and manager Joe Girardi will be able delay the decision on who gets dropped from New York’s rotation. Girardi has been promising for several days that the team would go back to a five-man rotation after Sunday. Well that's one way to do it.
