The New York Yankees have dealt with a short-staffed rotation due to injuries and Aaron Boone plans to use piggyback starters and his key relief pitchers in the postseason.

"We're going to be a little untraditional," Boone said. "The only one we might use as a traditional starter is [James] Paxton."

The piggybacking method falls in the same family as teams using an "opener" or "bullpenning."
