Matt DeSalvo, come on down

One of "The Rookies" will most likely be returning to the Yankees.

It looks like Matt DeSalvo is going to get another chance to prove to the Yankees he has what it takes to be a big league pitcher.

With the Yankees needing an additional starter for one of next Saturday's two games against the Devil Rays at Yankee Stadium, it appears DeSalvo is going to get the nod (source).

DeSalvo is 1-3 with a 5.87 ERA in six appearances (five starts). He has an outstanding 16:6 BB:K ratio as well.

In AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, DeSalvo is 6-1 with a 2.21 ERA in 11 starts. He has struck out 62 and walked 28 in 61 innings pitched.

Ugh, I can't wait until Phil Hughes comes back.
