Bartolo's hammy fine, set for next start on Tuesday

Joe Girardi watched the video of Bartolo Colon two-thirds of inning frame-by-frame. He talked with Colon. And, upon further review, he thinks that Colon's hamstring is fine and he is set to make his next start on Tuesday in Tampa.

"We didn't play defense behind him," Girardi said after looking at Colon's eight-run (three earned) outing.

Girardi added Colon's stuff wasn't that bad, even though his velocity was a tad below the 95 he has hit.

"There is no an injury," Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said. "As far as we can tell right now, it is not an injury situation."

The one thing Rothschild said Colon needs to get over is being skittish about his hamstring when he leaves the mound to field his position. Colon admitted to moving gingerly to guard against the injury.

One guy who was impressed was Aaron Hill.

"He's got probably the best sinker in the game," Hill said.
