MiL Rehab Roundup: 7/29/13

Another Monday, another round of rehab updates.

Jayson Nix- Was in the clubhouse before yesterday's game and will be activated from the DL to play third base in Tuesday night's series opener against LA.  He played in 4 rehab games, mostly with High-A Tampa, and went 1-14 with 1 BB, 1 HBP, and 2 K in those games.  David Adams has already been optioned back to Triple-A to clear a roster spot.

Michael Pineda- Made another shortened start for Triple-A last night, going 4 innings and giving up 2 ER on 3 H with 0 BB and 3 K.  He threw just 55 pitches in the game, so the team's innings management plans look to be in full effect.

David Phelps- Made a rehab start for Double-A Trenton last Tuesday and came through fine after allowing 2 ER with 3 BB and 6 K in 3.2 innings.  He threw a bullpen for the Yankee coaches on Friday and is scheduled to make another rehab start tomorrow.  His rehab window doesn't expire until August 22nd.

Curtis Granderson- Went 0-4 with 2 K as the DH for High-A Tampa yesterday, his 3rd game back on this latest rehab assignment.  Via Nicholas Flammia, the plan is for C-Grand to work out at the complex today and then join Double-A Trenton on Tuesday.  Joe has hinted that Granderson could be back as early as this coming weekend.

Francisco Cervelli- Had been progressing in his throwing and hitting drills before feeling some soreness in his hand late last week.  He's being re-evaluated and could be held out for a while as a precaution.  Starting to look like we might not see Frankie back this year.
