Some injury news

  • A-Rod will most likely not play until Saturday, if then. However, he was encouraged after running and doing fielding drills before Thursday’s game.
  • Fabulous Freddy’s scheduled bullpen session was pushed and it is unclear when he will throw again. If he’s not ready to go on Sunday there’s a good chance he will be placed on the DL. AJ will go tomorrow and Philthy will pitch on Saturday, and if Fab Fred can’t pitch Sunday then SuperNova will take the mound in his stead.
  • Joba will be with the team during this series as he begins a weight-lifting program. He said he hopes to begin throwing in a few weeks and could return by mid-April. In addition to Tommy John surgery, he had an appendectomy and an abdominal infection. He’s lost some weight with the procedures.
