PREGAME NOTES:

  • Pete Abe reports that A-Rod is now running at "90 percent" and his MRI revealed a Grade 1 tear in his quad, improving from a Grade 2 a couple of weeks ago. A-Rod eyes a return to the lineup next Tuesday at the Stadium, which can't come soon enough as far as I'm concerned.
    Chien-Ming Wang is a lifetime 7-4, 3.53 ERA, 1.22 WHIP in 12 starts against the Rays, including a 2-0 victory at the Stadium on April 6.
  • Edwin Jackson is a lifetime 2-2, 5.40 ERA, 1.58 WHIP in 9 games (5 starts) against the Yanks. He is 1-1, 4.91 ERA, 1.36 WHIP in two starts against them in 2008.
    Yanks career numbers vs. Jackson can be viewed here. Rays career numbers vs. Wang can be viewed here.
  • For those of you keeping tabs on the TJ kids, the always astute Chad Jennings reports that J.B. Cox has been promoted to Triple-A Scranton and Mark Melancon has been promoted to Double-A Trenton. Also, Pete Abe reported last night that Humberto Sanchez is now throwing off the mound and is scheduled to get into a game around June 10.
