Luis Cessa to start Wednesday against Phillies

The Yankees have shuffled their rotation a bit for this upcoming week, according to Erik Boland of Newsday.

The rotation against the Philadelphia Phillies, according to Marc Carig, will feature Jonathan Loaisiga, Luis Severino and Luis Cessa in that order, which likely means the rotation against the Boston Red Sox in next weekend’s AL East showdown will be CC Sabathia or Sonny Gray in games one and two, and Severino on regular rest for Sunday night.

By adding in Cessa, coupled with the off-day on Thursday, the Yankees have included an extra day of rest for their starters which is especially important for CC, who has proven to be a better pitcher when he has more rest. It also makes sense to line-up their best starters for such a pivotal series against Boston.

Cessa was activated from the disabled list following an injury to A.J. Cole. Cessa has appeared in just four games this season, tossing six innings and allowing two runs on three hits with seven strikeouts

As of right now, the Red Sox will throw Eduardo Rodriguez, Chris Sale, and David Price next weekend.
