Vazquez: Too early to tell

Posted by: Rick Carpiniello - Posted in Misc on May 22, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Some quick pregame stuff: Joe Girardi said Javy Vazquez’s index finger wasn’t too bad today, still swollen, but that there won’t be any indication on the severity of the injury until he throws his bullpen session … or until they see if he can grip the baseball. Trainers are working on getting the swelling down now …

Alfredo Aceves, on the DL with a back injury, will go to Tampa Monday to begin throwing. …

Marcus Thames was available last night, and should be available again tonight, as a pinch-hitter. But Girardi said he’d be careful with him. “Even if he hit I might pinch-run for him,” the manager said.

CC Sabathia, tomorrow’s starter, said he’s started bunches of games against Johan Santana. But this will be his first opportunity to bat against Santana. The big guy said he’s “excited” about it … then added that he doesn’t know how excited he’ll be when it’s over.
