News & Notes

- Johnny Damon was placed on waivers today by the Detroit Tigers and the Boston Red Sox put in a claim. Here's what Damon had to say:
"Right now, I'm not sure I want to leave Detroit," Damon told the media there on Monday afternoon, as quoted by Tom Gage in the Detroit News. "That's what is good about having time [to make a decision].

"But it feels weird. It's a pretty awkward decision -- probably tougher now [to go back to Boston] than it was leave Boston to go to New York.

"At this moment I'm not sure I want to leave Detroit for that. I'll have to think long and hard about it.

"I had a great time playing there, but once it became apparent that I wasn't a necessity to re-sign there, it started to get ugly.

"I have to think about if once again I'll be probably one of the nicest guys in baseball [in the opinion of the fans in Boston] but also the most hated guy in baseball [in the opinion of the fans in New York]. That's what it boils down to."

How would you feel if Damon went back to Boston?

- According to Chad Jennings, Joe Girardi said the Yanks are planning to get Andy Pettitte back on the mound on Friday to resume his rehab. He's going to play catch off flat ground first and if that goes well he'll throw a bullpen session.

- Derek Jeter is just getting a day off because he's played so much lately.

- Joel Sherman is reporting that once the rosters expand to 40, the Yankees plan on calling up Jonathan Albaladejo, Romulo Sanchez, and Juan Miranda.

- The Yankees have lost five of nine to the Blue Jays this year.
