Noesi a possibility for Thursday start
NEW YORK -- If Hector Noesi is to be tabbed for his first Major League start, the Yankees' rookie right-hander won't find out until Wednesday.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that the team continues to list Thursday's starter against the Rangers as "TBA," although Noesi will be up for the nod if he is not needed in relief before then.

"It's something we could definitely consider," Girardi said. "If I had to use him in the next three days, then we'd do something else."

Noesi was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday after being optioned on Wednesday. He is 1-0 with a 1.76 ERA in four relief appearances, finishing three games.

Now in his third stint at the big league level this year, Noesi was a starter at Triple-A, going 1-1 with a 3.92 ERA in four starts.

The Yankees need a starter with Bartolo Colon on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. If Noesi is used in relief, candidates at Triple-A include David Phelps and Adam Warren.
