According to Carl Pavano's agent, he will be getting the start on Saturday vs. the Orioles. This is probably because of Phil Hughes' most recent start. If Pavano pitches well and (less likely) stays healthy, he could stay in the rotation, allowing Hughes to eventually replace either Rasner or Ponson. Carl has incentive to pitch well, as a good performance could net him a contract this offseason.
