PANSY PAVANO HURT AGAIN!
Can the Yankees get a refund on this cluck?
NEW YORK -- Carl Pavano's comeback to the Yankees appears to be on hold once again.
Pavano, making his third rehab start on Wednesday, the second for Double-A Trenton, left the game after just one inning with tightness in his right triceps area.
The right-hander will be evaluated by Yankees team physician Dr. Stuart Hershon at Yankee Stadium on Thursday.
"We'll evaluate it and figure it out," said manager Joe Torre. "The fact that he warmed up and felt OK is puzzling, but it sounds like [he'll be going] back to Tampa to me."
This marks the second consecutive start in which Pavano has left early. Last Friday, he was removed after 63 pitches, despite being scheduled to throw 85-90. He cited soreness in his bicep.
"It's disappointing," Torre said. "I think it stops [the rehab assignment] short."
*****What a waste of money this pansy ass is!
