He's among the top prospects in the Yankee's depleted farm system. He was 10-11 with the Columbus Clippers last year, with a 4.35 ERA. He had two complete game shutouts for Columbus last year, so he's either really on or really off. Is he for sure the Yanks #5?

DePaula came in relief in yesterday's game against the D-Rays. He did not look good at all, he was hit hard.

he did pitch 1 2/3 innings - 1 hit, 1 K - he was nasty in a short stinit last year

CBS has told me that he has been named the 5th starter - i think Lieber is still down for awhile - so DePaula is in

Hadn't heard that he had been named the 5th starter. But either way, it is just until Lieber returns, which is supposed to happen in around mid-May. Plus, if Depaula has a bad outing, they could easily go back to Donovan Osborne.

Torre said the decision to start De Paula was based largely on Chicago's lineup, which features right-handed sluggers such as Frank Thomas, Carlos Lee and Magglio Ordonez.

"They seem to be pretty right-handed," Torre said. "Mel [Stottlemyre] and I have talked about it for a couple of weeks, and that's the main reason. It's nothing that Osborne hasn't done, it just seems to be a better match."

De Paula made his big-league debut last season, pitching in four games for the Yankees. His one Major League start came on Sept. 26 in Baltimore, as he held the Orioles hitless over the first six innings. He lost his no-hit bid with one out in the seventh, leaving the game after 6 1/3 shutout innings.

"That was impressive," Torre said. "I liked that he threw strikes and changed speeds. You don't think that he's going to throw a no-hitter every time he takes the ball, but he has real good stuff."

De Paula struggled this spring, going 1-3 with a 5.40 ERA in five outings. He battled a lower back injury in mid-March, but rebounded to pitch well once he returned. Osborne, who went 4-0 with a 3.86 ERA in six games this spring, will continue to pitch out of the bullpen for New York.
