Two days ago we learned that Joba Chamberlain is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment within two weeks. Here are some more injury updates courtesy of Chad Jennings and George King

  • CC Sabathia (groin) played catch prior to last night’s game and will throw a bullpen session — his first since going on the DL — on Friday. The team still expects him back right after next week’s All-Star break.
  • Pedro Feliciano (shoulder) threw a bullpen session in front of the braintrust yesterday. He’s currently throwing every three days but the plan is to bump him up to every other day at some point. Joe Girardi said there’s a legitimate chance the southpaw will help the team this season, but I wouldn’t count on it. Anything they get out of him is gravy.
  • Eduardo Nunez (thumb) is on the Triple-A disabled list and has just started taking batting practice. “He hopes to play in a couple of weeks or so,” said Girardi.
  • David Aardsma (elbow) went for various test following his recent setback, but the results aren’t available yet.

      Well you’re here, aren’t ya? It’s still early, posting this doesn’t mean the dude has no plans. I’m sure Mike will enjoy himself today.

    Good to see that CC doesn’t have a set back (so far), and good to see that Feliciano might have a shot of doing something. Maybe he can go all 2009 Damaso Marte on us this year.

    Real bummer about Aardsma though. Hopefully it’s nothing serious and he just needs to scale back the work load.

    Enjoy the 4th everyone! I’m going downtown myself to get some drinks with a friend. Anyone in the DC area looking for a bar, I’m going to be at Capitol City Brewery, they got some fantastic beer there.

    COME BACK TO ME NUNEZ

      He tried and dropped your invitation.

    That’s pretty expensive gravy.
