We talked to the skipper in the dugout before the game. He updated us on a few injuries. Bobby Abreu is getting close to swinging a bat, perhaps by the weekend. Brian Bruney threw 25 pitches in the bullpen today. Todd Pratt is a day or two away from playing.
No word on when Andy Phillips will return to camp.
Here is the audio from Joe:
Jason Giambi will play first base tomorrow when the Yankees play the Braves at Disney. There will be no DH for the game. “Time to let the Big G loose,” he said.
Saw Bubba Crosby in the Reds’ clubhouse. He was sporting long hair and a scruffy beard and had nothing but good things to say about his time with the Yankees.
