NEW YORK -- Yankees infielder Brendan Ryan, on the disabled list since Spring Training with a cervical spinal nerve injury, is scheduled to begin a Minor League rehabilitation assignment on Sunday with Class A Advanced Tampa.
Ryan has been playing in extended spring games, so manager Joe Girardi said it shouldn't take him too long to be ready to join the Major League team. Girardi said he thinks Ryan has had about 20 at-bats in extended spring. The Yankees would like him to get about 50 before he returns, and they would also like to see him play on back-to-back days.
"I don't imagine it'll be too long," Girardi said.
