There’s a chance Nestor Cortes is Yankees’ Game 1 postseason starter

Two weeks ago, Yankees manager Aaron Boone appeared on “The Show” with Joel Sherman and Jon Heyman. He quite definitively said Gerrit Cole would be his Game 1 starter in the postseason. But now it seems like Nestor Cortes has a shot at taking those honors from New York’s high-priced ace.

In direct contrast to what Boone said in the middle of September, pitching coach Matt Blake shared that the Yankees haven’t mapped out their postseason plan just yet. The two reasons behind this included wanting to see how the rotation finished the regular season, as well as see who they’ll be playing in the ALDS.
