What’s news today in the Bronx — Several injury updates to pass along…

Phil Hughes was so encouraging in his rehab start for Double-A Trenton, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman gushed that the right-hander seems good enough to get big league hitters out right now. As a result, the Yankees will meet to re-evaluate their plan for Hughes, considering ending his rehab assignment one start early and bringing him back to the Majors sooner than anticipated.

It appears increasingly likely that Bartolo Colon will be tabbed for a Subway Series start on Saturday against the Mets at Citi Field. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said that Colon will continue taking batting practice and fielding drills in New York, and if he can stay healthy, the start seems to be his.

Yankees captain Derek Jeter could play his first rehab game on Saturday at Double-A Trenton. Six hits shy of 3,000, he has been on the disabled list with a strained right calf and is continuing workouts in Tampa, Fla., going through baserunning, footwork, defense and lateral movement drills Wednesday.

Here we go again with Girardi resting half the team in 1 game…no martin, no granderson, no Arod….all in the same game!!!! 1/3 of the line-up gone…Jones in Pena in, Cervelli in….sheesh…give me a break!!! We win games despite our manager, thats all I can say…

“The Yankees are playing in a National League park this weekend, which means Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez will be in the lineup and in the field all three days. With no DH the next three days, Girardi decided to give those two a break today. “Sometimes you just look at your guys and you feel that they need a day off,” he said.”-Chad Jennings

Isn’t ARod a marvel. 3 strikeouts tonight. Some nights he is really off at the plate. And Tex isn’t getting it done tonight either.

Like

Good job Robertson. Now Mo should wrap this up in the 9th. Maybe the Yankees can get an insurance run or two this inning to give Mo a little more of a cushion to work with.

Like

Robertson should go to all-star game…best set up man I’ve seen this year and I watch “all” the teams…hes been unhittable…..I hope he gets a spot!!…He deserves it!!!

Like

Burnett over 100 pitches but pitched great game. Not his fault that Nunez threw the ball away, AGAIN! Hopefully Robertson can hold them and then Mo finish them off in the 9th. Yeh, itdibo, I enjoy the ride more when the Yankees are winning. Nice to see the Sox go down to defeat again tonight against the Phillies and the RAys lose too. We widen the lead.

Like

Nunez needs to do some work on his defensive play, particularly his throws. Too many errors and often in critical situations.

Like

AJ is great one inning and the next inning he gets hit all over the field and loads the bases. Go figure. Consistency is what AJ needs to capture. But is it too late for him at this stage of his career?

Like

Bob, I’m getting a kick out of ya…I’m the same way as soon as I say something about a player he does something good…I was watching Martin and thinking…come on man snap out of it…you’ve got to do better with the stick and bam he hits a 3 run homer and everything is great….baseball is a crazy game!! What do I know….lets just enjoy the ride and its our team so we “can” complain right??…enjoy buddy….come on Burnette…crank up a nice one tonite!!!

Like

I say that and then he triples. What do I know?

Like

Cano has certainly cooled off at the plate and his average has come way down from what it was early in the year. He’s certainly not the threat he was last year or was earlier this year. He always looks too casual whether that is his style or reality but it’s almost like he doesn’t care.

Like

Aj kills himself with stupid walks and not keeping men on base. He allows too many steals, too many walks and too many home runs. He gets himself in trouble constantly and then has to work to get himself out. It’s always a nail biter with AJ. He lacks control and location and gets behind too many batters.

Like

Tex and ARod have left 6 men on base between them in 4 innings. ARod strikes out with men on 2nd and 3rd. If you don’t take advantage of your opportunities early in the game it will come back to bite you later. Marcum is not a great pitcher. The Yankees owned him when he was with the Blue Jays. They need to bear down and start getting some runs. AJ needs run support. He gives up too many walks and home runs.
