Who says the New York Yankees are “light” on starting pitching this spring?
With veteran retreads Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon looking to join C.C. Sabathia, the Yankees could have three 300-pounders in their rotation. That would make them the fattest starting rotation in MLB history.
No wonder Yankees GM Brian Cashman didn’t want reliever Rafael Soriano. He doesn’t weigh as much as one of Colon’s thighs. Colon has been picked to start New York’s first Spring Training game Saturday.
