PREGAME NOTES:

Moose is seeking his 266th career win today, which would tie him with some guy named Bob Feller for 35th on the all-time career wins list.

Brian Bannister is a lifetime 1-1, 9.45 ERA, 2.17 WHIP in 3 starts against the Yanks. He is 2-6, 7.74 ERA, 1.72 WHIP in 11 starts on the road this season.

Mike Mussina is a lifetime 17-7, 2.96 ERA, 1.07 WHIP in 34 starts against the Royals. He is 14-4, 2.91 ERA, 1.18 WHIP over his last 21 starts since April 23.

Yanks' hitters vs. Bannister can be viewed here. Royals' hitters vs. Moose can be viewed here.

HUGHES TUNEUP: Phil Hughes is scheduled to make his fifth and perhaps final rehab start later today for Scranton and could return to the Yankee rotation as soon as Saturday against the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.

MATSUI COULD RETURN TUESDAY: Pete Abe reports that Hideki Matsui has 15 ABs during a simulated game in Tampa this morning and could return to the starting lineup as soon as Tuesday in Toronto if his knee shows no ill-effects.

If Matsui does return, he will be strictly limited to DH duties for the rest of the season.
