Don't look now, but Kei Igawa has pitched a shutout

OK, granted, it is over a series of games, but here's Igawa's line for the spring: 9 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 2 BB and 6 K.

Could he emerge as the Yanks' best option at long reliever? Right now the pool of candidates includes Igawa, Jason Johnson, Brett Tomko (who's also had a decent spring) and, in spots, Phil Coke.

What do you think? If you were the Yankees, would you trust Igawa as the long reliever? Would you trust him at all?

Update: Ryan Madson, meet Austin Jackson. The former Thunder center fielder reached the Phils' setup man for run-scoring single in the ninth inning of this afternoon's 12-0 Yankees win at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla.

Jackson is now hitting .280 on the spring with a home run and 2 RsBI.
