Kuroda's injury would later be classified as a bruised right calf. After the game Girardi told the media that he would be "shocked" if Kuroda didn't make his next start against the Mets on Tuesday at Citi Field opposite Matt Harvey. Kuroda is a vital part of the Yankees chase to 28. He is basically the ace of the Yankees staff and losing him for an extended period of time would be devastating for the Yankees going forward. So hearing from Girardi that Kuroda will likely make his next is a promising sign for the Yankees.
The Yankees lost two out of three to an underwhelming Orioles team that was treading water before the Yankees came into town. Tomorrow the Yankees will have an off-day and will get back at it on Friday against Roberto Hernandez aka Fausto Carmona and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. The Yankee have not played well in Tampa over the past couple of years. David Phelps will get the start on Friday.
