PREGAME NOTES:

  • Great news on A-Rod. Pete Abe reports that A-Rod has now been cleared to play some rehab games starting on Saturday. He will play in an extended Spring Training game on Saturday, an intrasquad game on Sunday, and another Spring Training game on Monday. Barring any setbacks this weekend, he will likely be activated on Tuesday.
  • Hard to believe, but the Yanks have averaged just 2.9 runs over their last 8 games.
  • As expected, Kei Igawa has been sent back down to Scranton to make room on the roster for Ian Kennedy.
  • Kennedy is a lifetime 1-1, 5.87 ERA, 1.63 WHIP in 3 starts against the Rays, including a no decision in his best start of the 2008 season (6 IP, 3 ER) on April 14.
  • Scott Kazmir is a lifetime 2-3, 3.00 ERA, 1.41 WHIP in 9 games (8 starts) against the Yanks, including 1-0, 2.66 ERA, 1.18 WHIP in 4 starts against them in 2007.
