New York Yankees Notes, Quotes 2009-05-12
--RHP Chien-Ming Wang is scheduled to make his first rehab start Tuesday night when he pitches for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes Barre. Wang is scheduled to throw 100 pitches. He has been on the disabled list since April 25 with hip weakness. He went 0-3 with a 34.50 ERA in his first three starts.

--RHP Brett Tomko was promoted from AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (Pa.) on Saturday to aid the Yankees' struggling bullpen. The veteran had competed for a job in spring training and had thought he earned one after posting a 1.17 ERA but was demoted. With the bullpen failing to come up with answers, the Yankees turned to Tomko, who had yielded one run in 14 innings at Scranton. He allowed the same amount on three hits Saturday against Baltimore. RHP Dave Robertson was demoted to make room.

--RHP Ian Kennedy, one of the Yankees' top minor-league pitchers, is scheduled to undergo surgery for an aneurysm in an artery in his right shoulder on Tuesday. Kennedy, who had struggled and lost his spot in the rotation with the Yankees last season, had been pitching well at AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (Pa.) before landing on the disabled list. An MRI revealed the aneurysm and Kennedy will be operated on by Dr. George Todd, who performed the same procedure on former Yankee David Cone in 1996.

BY THE NUMBERS: 2 -- Catchers the Yankees placed on the disabled list in a three-day span in the second week of May.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I needed to look in the mirror and grow up." -- Alex Rodriguez, after his return to the Yankees on May 8 following hip surgery and a tumultuous period of off-the-field headlines.
