Updates on the Injured Yankees

SteveB over at NJ.com's Pride of the Yankees blog has the rundown. Here's a rundown of the more severe injured Yanks:
Eric Chavez (foot)--  The protective boot is off and he is walking fairly normally.  He will not resume any baseball activities until he is able to run, and there seems to be no timetable for that.

Pedro Feliciano (shoulder)--  Will begin a throwing program June 1 in an effort to rebuild strength in his shoulder in order to avoid surgery.

Phil Hughes (arm)--  Hoping to throw off a mound this week but nothing has been formally arranged.  He is continuing to 'long throw' and will accompany the team on its west coast trip later this week.

Rafael Soriano (elbow)--  He has been playing catch in the outfield before games and is expected to throw off a mound either Tuesday or Wednesday.  The Yankees want him to throw off a mound a few more times before sending him to the minors on a rehab assignment.

(Steve, I hope you don't mind me quoting so much).
Joba Chamberlain is also suffering from pink-eye, but is available to pitch and Nick Swisher, who has a gash on his right arm, remains questionable.
