How's everybody feeling after the long weekend? Here's a roundup of some of the smaller goings on that you might have missed. - Masahiro Tanaka threw a 31-pitch bullpen session on Sunday and once again it was all good. Weather permitting, he'll make his next Triple-A rehab start tomorrow. I imagine his pitch count will be bumped up to 60.
- Still a lot of nothing on the Jacoby Ellsbury knee front. Joe acknowledged that Ellsbury will miss more than the minimum 15-day DL stint, but there has been no timetable given and nothing official on the diagnosis. Right now, we know it was a knee sprain that won't require surgery and Ellsbury is wearing a knee brace. That's it.
- Keith Law released his updated top 25 prospects list earlier today. The whole thing is Insider-only but the relevant information for Yankee fans is not. After a strong start in Double-A, Aaron Judge came in at number 16 on the list. If he keeps this up, he's going to be a household name nationally by the end of the year.
- Scheduling note- 3 future games with TBA start times were officially made 1:05 PM starts today.: June 21st against Detroit, August 23rd against Cleveland, and September 27th against the White Sox. So make sure you bring the sunscreen if you've got tickets for those.
- Staying on prospects, Rob Refsnyder's 25-game on-base streak was snapped last night. He hit .347 during the streak and Tamar talked about him last week. Defensive issues being what they are, the countdown clock for him to come up has to have started by now.
