With the exception of 40-year old lefty starting pitcher Andy Pettitte (1-0, 1.13 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP), the Yankees rotation has stunk things up so far this year. 32-year old lefty C.C. Sabathia (0-1, 7.20 ERA and a 2.40 WHIP), 38-year old righty Hiroki Kuroda (0-1, 13.50 ERA and a 3.75 WHIP), 26-year old righty Ivan Nova (0-1, 7.71 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP) and 26-year old righty Phil Hughes (0-1, 6.75 ERA and a 2.00 WHIP) were all lousy the first time around the rotation. The Yankees’ starting rotation is a combined 1-4 with a 5.48 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP so far this year. The Yankees thought that the starting rotation was going to be a strength for the team in 2013, so they need these guys to turn things around in the very near future.
