Rain Out Open Thread

The game has been postponed and will be a double header tomorrow. here are some notes.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday that Derek Jeter (calf) will still be the leadoff hitter when he returns from the disabled list.

Hardly shocking news and we probably wouldn’t have heard any different, even if Jeter wasn’t chasing 3,000 hits. Curtis Granderson is locked in out of the second spot in the order, so this likely means that Brett Gardner will be batting ninth on most days.

Bartolo Colon (hamstring) played long toss Tuesday for the first time since landing on the disabled list.

Colon has been out of commission since June 12 with a strained left hamstring. If he’s able to avoid setbacks, he could return before the All-Star break. The veteran right-hander has a fantastic 3.10 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 72 strikeouts through 78 1/3 innings this season.

Morning Bits 6/21/11

Nice start from Nova last night.  Let’s hope the winning continues again tonight.  If you want to see his start in a minute video clip click his name.

Here are your morning links…

* A-Rod is feeling O.K. but he is still a little banged up.

* Brian Gordon is ready for his second start with the Yankees today.

* SWB Warren had an impressive win last night.

Rafael Soriano (elbow) arrived at the Yankees’ spring training complex in Tampa on Monday morning.
Soriano is expected to begin a throwing program within the next few days. He’s already been playing catch for about a week but still needs to prove the health of his elbow by throwing off a mound. The right-hander is not expected to return to the major leagues until mid-July.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi confirmed Monday that Phil Hughes (arm) will make two more rehab starts.
Hughes struck out seven batters and hit 95 mph with his fastball in an impressive rehab debut this weekend with Single-A Staten Island. He will move along to Double-A Trenton for his next outing, then perhaps Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for his rehab finale. The young right-hander is on track for an early-July return
