Tonight's Lineups and Some News on Hughes & Cervelli

Here's the update on Hughes from Ian Begley:
Pitching coach Larry Rothschild observed Phil Hughes on Sunday during the righty's first long-toss session since going to the disabled list. Rothschild reported that Hughes "had some life" on the ball, manager Joe Girardi said after the Yankees' 6-5 win over Texas.


Hughes will likely throw a long-toss session Monday and will continue them after a day of rest in Toronto. The Yankees play a two-game series against the Blue Jays on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"Larry said it went well. He said he thought [Hughes] had some life on the ball when he was long tossing," Girardi said Sunday. "He'll go with us to Toronto and you'll see him long-tossing as well. Conditions might be a little more favorable inside but Larry thought it went well today."
And Cervelli via Bryan Hoch:
Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Class-A Tampa on Thursday, weather permitting, the team has announced.
