Even though I don’t agree with it, it makes sense. If he had another bad start, the Yankees do not want to bury their bullpen in the first game of a critical series against the Red Sox. Vazquez will have three extra days to prepare for his next start against the Tigers.

Vazquez is a professional, so I don’t expect him to make a big deal about this. He just needs to focus on fixing his mechanics.
