Carl "American Idle" Pavano is back on the New York Yankees ' radar. Pavano, who has appeared in 19 games in four Yankee seasons and cost them $40 million, is close to going on a minor-league rehab assignment. . . .
Phil Hughes , out with a fractured rib, is "Very close to throwing batting practice" according to Cashman.
Isn't that all Hughes was throwing BEFORE he got hurt? Isn't Pavano equally as close to going back on the DL, too?
Who do you think we'll see first in the Bronx, you know, actually playing?
