Yankees RHP Kevin Brown will miss at least one start after suffering from back pain during today’s ineffective start against the Tigers (4 runs, 6 hits allowed over 3 innings in NY’s 4-3 loss).

The giddy Tigers radio crew commented throughout that Brown didn’t seem to hitting the velocity he showed during the start of 2004….and with the regular season just a few days away, the excuse of just getting some work in wouldn’t wash. Which it clearly hasn’t.
