Hope everybody is enjoying their Memorial Day. Here's the latest on the batch of injured/rehabbing Yankees if you're near a computer:
- Michael Pineda is slated to pitch 2 innings in an ExST game in Tampa tomorrow. No word on how many of these games he's expected to pitch or what his pitch count will be.
- Carlos Beltran took 15 dry swings with a fungo bat today and felt good, and the plan is for him to take more tomorrow. According to Jorge Castillo, tomorrow's session will include 30 swings with a real bat.
- Via Dan Barbarisi, Shawn Kelley threw on flat ground from 75 feet today "with no issues". I imagine the team will see how he feels tomorrow before making a decision on the next step.
- If you missed it earlier, Mark Teixeira was scratched from the lineup with stiffness in his surgically-repaired right wrist. Sounds minor, some normal post-surgery effects. Details can be found in the post below.
Today is John's 82nd birthday
