- Despite what we’ve heard regarding Hiroki Kuroda being unwilling to waive his no-trade clause to come to the east coast, MLBTR reports that the Yankees are still among the teams pursuing him. As many have noted, Kuroda is likely the best starter available on a rather thin trading market.
- Good news on the injury front: Eric Chavez is expected to be activated on Tuesday, and if he can actually stay on the field his 124 wRC+ bat would be a huge boost to the Yankee bench. Rafael Soriano is also expected to return on either Wednesday or Thursday. If Soriano can get back to his normal self he’ll essentially function as the bullpen trade deadline acquisition the team has been trying to make. [via RAB]
- More good news on the injury front: Brian Cashman expects Alex Rodriguez to return to the lineup during the second week of August. As many have noted — myself included — the Yankee offense has taken a pretty substantial hit in the aftermath of losing its cleanup hitter, and so Alex’s return really can’t come soon enough.

- In extremely exciting news, Scranton starter Adam Warren is preparing to make his Major League debut this Saturday, starting one of the two games the Yankees play against the O’s in a day-night doubleheader. Many have been clamoring for Warren — who zipped up the Yankees’ top prospect list this past winter after an excellent 2010 campaign at AA — to get a chance to start, and it’ll be fascinating to see how Warren – who has posted a 3.26 ERA/3.80 FIP in 110.1 AAA innings this season, along with a 6.04 K/9 and 3.18 BB/9 — performs in the biggest outing of his life. As you’ll recall, the last Yankee to make his first career start in pinstripes was Ivan Nova last summer, and that went reasonably well. [RAB]
