Yankees calling up AAA pitcher Kris Wilson to replace Shawn Chacon.

RHP Kris Wilson will make his first start for the Yankees on Sunday. Wilson, called up from Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday, is replacing RHP Shawn Chacon in the rotation. ``I appreicate the opportunity,'' Wilson said. ``It's a great opportunity. It's fun. I'm going to go after them and throw strikes.''
I was wondering what the Yanks were going to do about Chacon, he has been horrendous this season.
I thought they might go after John Smoltz but apparently they think this kid could be the answer.
It's nice to see the Yanks farming some good young players the last couple of seasons with Robinson Cano last season and Cabrera this year and now this kid Wilson.
