Apr 24 – Road to Recovery

medical(Bronx, NY) – Here is quick summary on 3 Yanks that are working their way back to normal.  Things have not been as smooth as the Yanks would like but given that these members of the squad have not been available or at their best, the current record of 9-6 is actually encouraging.

  • For the second straight day, Alex Rodriguez did some base-running drills in Tampa. According to the AP, Rodriguez ran four times from the plate to first after swinging a bat, and went from first to second six times.   The three-time AL MVP also took 28 swings on curveballs off a pitching machine for the first time.
  • Xavier Nady has opted to skip surgery and try to rehab his arm back into shape.  We wish him luck and will track as more info is available.
  • C-M Wang threw in extended spring training.   The results:  7 innings, 9 hits, 5 runs, 4 earned, 0 walks, 11 strikeouts,91 pitches / 70 strikes.
    • Good day,” Wang said. “Sinker down more, but sometimes got higher and the ball didn’t sink.”
    • from Nardi Contreras:  “What I saw today, he had the best slider I’ve seen since I’ve known Chien-Ming.   The slider has improved and the changeup is very good. His offspeed pitches are coming in really well”

  1. That’s right! Phil Hughes going to be called up and Wang put up on the 15 day D.L. to regain his arm strength!

  2. I think we are going to see Wang go on the DL and Hughes start in Wang’s place for a little while, or until Wang gets his stuff together.
