Harden Scratched from Tuesday Start

And so it begins...

The A's rotation is a mess right now, maybe Gaudin gets bumped up, but I don't know who else will start this series against Toronto.

Sorry for the confusion, the source says that Gaudin will in fact be moved up to start Tuesday. I guess Eveland gets one of the other starts and the A's will need to find someone else if Duch can't go.

This is what it says on the Oakland A's website...

Doesn't mention an injury and just says that he's now scheduled for Wednesday...

Tuesday: Gaudin gets the start here as Rich Harden, originally scheduled to make this start, gets pushed back a day. This will Gaudin's first start of 2008. The right-hander went 11-13 with a 4.42 ERA in 34 starts for the A's in 2007.

Wednesday: Harden, who gave up one run on three hits over six dominant innings to beat Boston in Oakland's second game, squared off with the powerful Red Sox again in his second start and held them scoreless while giving up five four hits over five innings. Because he's coming off a third consecutive season derailed by injuries, Harden is being handled very carefully and was lifted after just 86 pitches in his second start. He said he'd probably have been able to throw as many as 115, but the A's might not let him go past 100 against the Jays.

Still worth being suspicious about. They held him to 85 pitches last outing. Good info though.

No freaking way! I started him only because he was a 2 starter this week, now he will be lucky to get one start this week. I wish someone would offer me a trade for him.

Whether it came now, in a week, in a month, or in two months, would anyone be surprised? Honestly, it's completely a matter of when instead of if with Harden.
