PREGAME NOTES:

  • For those who haven't seen it, Phil Hughes reports on his own blog that he has been pain free for about a week and expects to start throwing soon.
  • Ian Kennedy "felt good" after throwing roughly 30 pitches during a bullpen session yesterday and will be headed to Tampa to continue his rehab. However, with Darrell Rasner pitching well and Joba Chamberlain in the rotation to stay, look for Kennedy to spend significant time in Scranton upon his return from injury.
  • Here's a disturbing trend - Chien-Ming Wang has walked three or more hitters in 6 consecutive starts. No Yankee pitcher has done that since Roger Clemens did it in 10 consecutive starts way back in 1999.
  • Yanks have never faced Dana Eveland.
  • Wang is a lifetime 1-0, 1.42 ERA, 1.18 WHIP in 2 starts against the Athletics.
