Aaron Harang was scratched from today’s start because of a stiff lower back. Hector Noesi will take his place.

Harang said he’s had back problems in the past and most often manages it with a chiropractor. He said he twisted his back Wednesday and it flared up on him Thursday. He told manager Eric Wedge on Wednesday that he was having some back issues.

Noesi will step in for him. Wedge said Noesi knows each time he pitches now, he’s pitching for his spot on the team. Wedge also said he didn’t think it was “fair” to move Brandon Maurer up. Maurer is scheduled to start Friday in Cleveland.

    Despite it being in Yankee Stadium, I don’t think you start Ibanez versus a good lefty like Petitte. Most of the time I wouldn’t play him against any lefty.
