Yankees Daily Injury Updates

Eduardo Nunez hit in the cage today and experienced no pain in that sore rib cage muscle and is expected to be back tomorrow against Kansas City. In an emergency situation he could play tonight but the Yankees want to give him one more day if they can just to be sure.

Chris Stewart is obviously okay after bunting that ball off of his knee in last night's win over Colorado. I know I am a little late to the party but I felt like it needed mentioning.

Kevin Youkilis did some work out for the first time since being placed on the DL with a lumbar sprain in his lower back. Youk is no where near ready to come off the DL just yet but any progress is progress at this point.

Joba Chamberlain threw a bullpen session today and expects to throw another one tomorrow in Tampa. If he comes through both of these tests then the Yankees will begin discussing a rehab assignment. Every sign points to Joba being activated the day he is eligible. My question is how can you send down Preston Claiborne when Joba is healthy?

Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
