Yankees postponed, Sabathia to start tomorrow

The first game of the Rays-Yankees series has been postponed, even though it’s b-e-a-utiful here in Hanover, NH. 

The only change in the rotation is Andy Pettitte and A.J. Burnett switching places.  Everyone else moves over a day, starting with CC Sabathia pitching Saturday’s day-game.  After the Yanks finish with the Rays, they’ll visit the Red Sox at Fenway for a three-game set starting Tuesday.  Here’s what the pitching matchups look like, barring anymore rainouts:

vs. Rays Rays Starters Yankees Starters
Saturday David Price (1-0, 3.00) CC Sabathia (5-3, 3.46)
Sunday A. Sonnanstine (4-5, 7.07) J. Chamberlain (3-1, 3.71)
Monday Jeff Niemann (5-4, 3.77) Andy Pettitte (5-2, 4.33)
@ Red Sox Yankees Starters Red Sox Starters
Tuesday A.J. Burnett Josh Beckett
Wednesday Chien-Ming Wang Tim Wakefield
Thursday CC Sabathia Brad Penny

Update: The Rays moved Matt Garza out of Sunday's matchup, and will not pitch at all in the series.  This is good news for Yankees fans.

A makeup date is yet to be announced, but it will not be a doubleheader this weekend.  WFAN’s Sweeny Murti predicts it will be sometime on September.
