PREGAME NOTES:

  • Jorge Posada remains on target for a mid-week return after making a couple of strong throws to second base in game action today. He will likely get a day off tomorrow and play in two more extended Spring Training games on Monday and Tuesday before he is activated from the DL.
  • Hideki Matsui is tearing the cover off the ball these days - hitting .548 (17 for 31) over his last 8 games while raising his average to an AL-leading .339.
  • On the other side of that spectrum, Derek Jeter is in a horrific 3 for 37 (.081) slide since he was hit on the wrist 10 days ago.
    Chien-Ming Wang is a lifetime 2-0, 1.71 ERA, 1.00 WHIP in 3 starts against the Twins.
    Boof Bonser is a lifetime 0-2, 9.31 ERA, 2.07 WHIP in 2 starts against the Yanks.
