Gordon optioned out

To make room for Bartolo Colon, the Yankees have optioned out story-of-the-year, Brian Gordon. Joe Girardi said that Gordon hadn't pitched in awhile so they thought it was better to stretch him out at Triple-A, if they need him again.

That means Hector Noesi survives another day. Gordon was 0-1 with a 5.23 ERA. Noesi is 1-0 with a 3.68 ERA.

If you have forgotten how great Gordon's story is check out Ian O'Connor's column from the day Gordon made his starting debut at 32.
