D-Rob to begin rehab games Sunday


David Robertson, who is on the DL with a strained oblique, felt fine after a bullpen session on Thursday and is scheduled to pitch in a minor league rehab game on Sunday.

“I’m throwing and I feel good,” Robertson told Josh Thomson of the Journal News. “I felt like I tested it yesterday. I threw the ball hard. I threw the ball hard in all my bullpens. I really tried to make sure it’s ready. The last thing I want to do is say I’m fine and have something else happen. I’m trying to avoid that.”

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that it’s realistic to expect D-Rob to pitch Sunday, again on Tuesday, and then activated after that as long as there are no setbacks.
