Matt DeSalvo will be brought up Monday to get the start that was supposed to go to Roger Clemens.
DeSalvo will be eligible to return because Doug Mientkiewicz is going on the DL. It's a decent matchup for him against a struggling White Sox offense heavy with right-handed hitters. However, he's still a lousy play in AL-only leagues.
Kei Igawa, thought to be the leading candidate to start Monday for the Yankees, pitched seven innings and allowed three runs -- two earned -- for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.
He struck out nine in his best start since his demotion. With Igawa ruled out and Ross Ohlendorf on the minor league DL, it's hard to tell what the Yankees are planning for Monday. It's unlikely they could pull a reliever out of the pen. Chase Wright is an option, but he'd be going on three days' rest. Steven Jackson is Scranton's scheduled starter tomorrow.
