I heard that Rick Sutcliffe reported on ESPN that Carl Pavano is out for the season.
This is completely false. Pavano is with the team and has a throwing session scheduled. Torre, Cashman and Guidry all denied the report.
Meanwhile, Mussina has a bullpen session tomorrow and will pitch for Class AA Trenton on Friday in Harrisburg. If that goes well, he would start against Texas next week, probably on Thursday.
As for the 40-man roster move, they don’t need to make one. They can move Humberto Sanchez to the 60-day DL.
