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.
