Yankees' game vs. O's washed out on Tuesday
By Thomas Boorstein / MLB.com
Tuesday's game between the Yankees and the Orioles was postponed about 10 minutes before the scheduled 7:05 p.m. ET first pitch. A makeup date has not been announced.
A.J. Burnett, Tuesday's scheduled starter, will pitch Wednesday against Chris Tillman. Phil Hughes will then take the mound Thursday against Jake Arrieta.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the team still had to decide who would start Friday's game. Freddy Garcia, who had his start rained out on April 6, had been scheduled to start. Ivan Nova, who pitched Saturday in Boston and had been scheduled to pitch Thursday, could be pushed back a day. The Yankees' next off-day is Monday -- five games away.
"We do play five days in a row, so you will see every starter," Girardi said.
Garcia pitched Sunday in relief in Boston.
