* Bobby Abreu was not taken for tests after all. But the news isn’t good. “He had a significant oblique strain,â€? general manager Brian Cashman said. “Those can be timely. You can be looking at as long as three weeks.” Torre told us Abreu would be ready for the start of the regular season. Cashman was far less optimistic. “Worst-case scenario is it’s one of those lengthy ones that gives him too short a period of time to get ready,â€? the GM said. “But it’s premature to be guessing. We have a lot of time between now and Opening Day.”

If you’re interesting in speculating about Bernie Williams, stop. Cashman made it clear that it’s not happening. That ship has sailed.

* RHP Humberto Sanchez had an MRI that showed inflammation in his elbow but no ligament problem. He is day to day.

* RHP Brian Bruney had an MRI on his left side. It was negative. He is a day or two from getting back on the mound.
