Bronx Baseball Daily:
One way or another, Yankees pitcher Hector Noesi will be a starter next season even if he has to start the season in the minor leagues, according to Chad Jennings of the Journal News.
“I have no intention of Noesi doing (using Noesi as a reliever) again,” Brian Cashman told Jennings. “I just think Noesi is a starter, so one way or another, that’s where he needs to be. I don’t want to waste his time as a long man if we can avoid it.”
The soon to be 25-year-old Noesi will go to spring training fighting for a spot in the Yankees rotation. Unless somebody gets hurt or Phil Hughes continues to disappoint, Noesi will be the odd man out as they already have five starters locked in. That makes it likely that he will start the season in the Triple-A rotation until a spot opens up in the Bronx.
Noesi has been pitching in the Dominican Winter League this offseason in order to be stretched out to start and has done a tremendous job so far. In nine starts he has a 2.66 ERA, 24 strikeouts, and seven walks in 40.2 innings.
