Yankees May Go With 3-man Rotation Against Angels

The Yankees may go with a three-man rotation against the Los Angeles Angels in the AL championship series.

Manager Joe Girardi says the shortened rotation would allow him to keep Joba Chamberlain and Chad Gaudin in the bullpen.

Such a plan would have CC Sabathia starting Game 4 on three days' rest. Sabathia is used to short rest from his time with the Milwaukee Brewers last year.

New York is coming off a first-round sweep of Minnesota. The Yankees open a best-of-seven series at home against the Angels on Friday night.
