As the season progresses, change in inevitable. The Yankees are far from shy from making moves during the course of the season. Players can be promoted and trades could be made. The Yankee rotation could very well see some new faces during the summer months.
CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes and A.J. Burnett will still claim their spots in the rotation. Sabathia and Hughes will continue their dominance this season and have the top two rotation spots locked up. Burnett is still a staple for this Yankee rotation, but if he continues to slide, he might not be so comfortable.
The back-end of the rotation on the other-hand could be a work-in-progress for the Yankees. Nova has the potential to create some noise, but the fifth spot in the rotation is still up in the air. There are some names that could easily jump in and hit the ground running.
The "Killer B's" as they are known throughout the Bronx, might be ready for the bigs. Manny Banuelos, Andrew Brackman and Dellin Betances each bring something to the table that has impressed Yankee management.
Baneulos is still young at only 19-years-old, so he is destined to spend more time in the Minors. Brackman had some success in AA last year, going 5-7 with a 3.01 ERA. He has made some head turns this spring and could see his name called in 2011.
Delin Betances has the greatest chance of being added to the Yankee rotation out of the three this season. He boasts a 6'8" frame and dominated in high-A and AA ball going 8-1 with a 2.11 ERA. His height sometimes causes his mechanics to get out of whack, but with work, this can be ironed out.
With a solid spring, it would be hard to keep Betances off the big league roster this season.
