A few notes sent over from the Yankees with my comments in italics:

Earlier today, RHP David Aardsma was seen in Baltimore by Dr. Lewis Yocum (who performed Aardsma’s surgery) and Yankees Team Physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad. Both doctors recommended that Aardsma have two more weeks of rest without throwing and then commence a throwing program.

The chances of Aardsma having any meaningful impact this year take a big blow. It is still possible, but much less probable.

Earlier today, RHP David Phelps was transferred to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre from Double-A Trenton.

Phelps will continue to prepare to be a starter if the Yankees need one.

RHP Joba Chamberlain is scheduled to pitch two innings on Saturday with the GCL Yankees vs. the GCL Blue Jays (10:00 a.m start).

Joba threw 97-MPH in his first outing. If there are no hiccups, he should be with the big club next month.
