Playoff prices and injury updates

From The Times -

The Yankees announced ticket prices for potential home playoff games, with prices for most non-suite seats in the first round remaining the same as the regular season, and some even selling for less - $5 to $275 apiece.

That's nice of them (and a good PR move in light of all the commotion made about ticket prices early this year).

Brett Gardner expects to participate in batting practice on Tuesday, a sign that he's come closer to returning from the broken thumb that has sidelined him since July 26. Gardner said he hopes to be ready for a minor league rehab assignment as early as Thursday.

Girardi said Gardner would be thrown right back into the mix at center upon his return.

Girardi said pitcher Sergio Mitre, who in his last start was struck on the forearm, may still miss his scheduled start on Thursday. Mitre didn't throw his scheduled bullpen session on Monday, instead participating only in a "light catch."

"His start is still in question," Girardi said. "We'll have a much better idea tomorrow."

Girardi said right-hander Chad Gaudin is preparing to make the spot start if Mitre can't go.

The Yankees right-hander, coming back from May surgery to remove an aneurysm from beneath his right biceps, threw 45 pitches off a mound at the team's complex in Tampa, Fla., and pronounced himself all set to throw batting practice Wednesday.
