Getting the rotation ready to pitch its best in October is the real goal here.Deivi probably has innings restrictions too, but once Paxton and German are back, they will have a lot of flexibility, depending as always on who is actually healthy.
I am really appreciating the workhorse nature of Torre’s various staffs, in retrospect. Hopefully, Gerrit Cole falls in that category. Tanaka has really hung in there over his career. I think he is a really solid Yankee pitcher who just needs to win a WS to get in Cone’s neighborhood.
