The Twitters are all abuzz with word of a Xavier Nady sighting. Per the Yankees PR Twitter account, Nady will begin a rehab assignment this Wednesday in Scranton. There is no indication yet as to how long Nady will be in Scranton. The rehab clock runs for 30 days, but I would expect him back in the Bronx by the first week of July. If he’s going out on rehab, the Yankees feel he can play the outfield. His return would bring some solid depth to the Yankees’ bench.
Update by Mike (5:40pm): Since we’re on the subject on rehab assignments, I just wanted to mention that Cody Ransom’s rehab and DL assignment both end this coming Wednesday. So unless Ransom manages to reinjure himself within the next two days, he’ll be replacing Angel Berroa on the roster later this week.
