After handing out mid-season grades to the New York Yankees’ lineup, I felt compelled to give the starting rotation the same treatment. Well, maybe not the exact same treatment.

Uneven Season From C.C. So Far

Uneven Season From C.C. So Far

While the Yankees have scored the most runs in baseball thus far, their starting pitching hasn’t lived up to its enormous potential.

Here is a look at the six starting pitchers the Yankees have sent to the mound this season. Be warned, this report card isn’t pretty in some spots.
