brian_cashman_alcs.jpgJust spoke to Brian Cashman. Here are a few updates for you:

Phil Hughes: He will stay in rotation and start for Scranton on Sunday. “We want him to get his pitch count up and then we’ll evaluate where we stand on him,” Cashman said.

Joba Chamberlain: “Let’s let him enjoy AAA and we’ll see what happens. He’s starting tonight and he’s going to be in their rotation.” I asked him whether Chamberlain was a possibility for the major league bullpen. “Anything is possible,” Cashman said. “He needs to pitch in Triple-A right now.”

Jason Giambi: Cashman said The Big G will be the DH for Tampa on Friday and Saturday then be evaluated again. “It’s the first step in the process,” he said. “I have no idea how many games he’ll need.”

On the trade deadline: “It would be just words for me to say it’s picking up or it’s quiet. We’re all engaging each other trying to run into something that makes sense. That’s what will happen until Tuesday. Right now, I have nothing for you.”
