SEATTLE -- Shawn Kelley is expected to rejoin the Yankees' bullpen on Wednesday for the second game of a three-game series against the Mariners at Safeco Field.

Kelley made his second rehab appearance on Monday for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre against Toledo, facing four batters and pitching a scoreless inning around a hit.

"He could very well be with us tomorrow," manager Joe Girardi said. "Everything was fine, so we're expecting him tomorrow."

Kelley has not appeared in a big league game since May 6 due to a strained lumbar spine. He also has pitched for Double-A Trenton on his rehab assignment.
