Here are a few news items from Brian Cashman:

* Miguel Cairo was officially signed today and added to the roster. No word on who is being bumped off the 40-man yet.

* Humberto Sanchez, contrary to popular belief, is being groomed as a starter and is targeted for the Scranton rotation.

* J.B. Cox fractured a bone in his throwing hand five weeks ago and won’t start a throwing program until the first week of February. Cashman refused to say how he broke his hand.

* Cashman talked in general terms about Bernie Williams. It seems like they’re waiting for Bernie to make some kind of decision. “His situation is that he’s a free agent,” Cashman said.

* Cashman expects Roger Clemens to pitch this season. But he doesn’t know where the Yankees stand with the Rocket. “He’s in a great position, he’s a free agent. They know where we sit and how we feel. … If he wants to do a second tour with us, we’d be happy to discuss it,” Cashman said. “Do I feel we have the inside track on the man? No.”

* Carl Pavano is not going into spring training as a rehab case. He has been fully cleared to be on the same schedule as everybody else.
