Kennedy Sent Down

Ian Kennedy has been sent down to AAA in order to make room for today's starter Darrell Rasner.

The big news today: Ian Kennedy, 0-2 with an 8.37 ERA in six games (five starts) has been optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre until he gets straightened out.

That means Darrell Rasner, today's starter, gets at least one more start Friday or Saturday, with another pitcher -- the Yankees are leaning toward Kei Igawa -- getting called up this weekend to take Kennedy's spot.

"We feel he's close, but he's not where he needs to be," Joe Girardi said. "So we felt that it's best for him to go work that out down in Triple-A."

Is there anything more insulting for a starting pitcher than being replaced by Kei Igawa.
