Carlos Silva joins the Thunder

In a bit of a surprise, Carlos Silva has joined the Thunder pitching staff for the time being. He last threw on May 9, which would put him on track for an appearance of some sort tomorrow against Binghamton.

The way I see it, this could shake down in one of two ways:

1. Silva starts tomorrow's game and goes three or four innings, and Dellin Betances (tomorrow's scheduled starter) throws for the rest of the game.

2. Silva starts tomorrow's game, goes about five or six innings, and then turns it over to a regular assortment of relievers.

The latter scenario would push Betances to Sunday and Banuelos moving to Tuesday, which would put him at seven days of rest. Because of that, I'd think the Yankees would choose scenario No. 1, just to keep him on regular rest.
