A couple of notes via Peter Abraham of the Journal News:

Right handed pitcher David Robertson threw for the third time in the past week and seems ready to take the next step in his rehab from elbow pain.

He could be pitching by this weekend.

“I really liked what I saw when he was throwing. He was letting it go,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

Robertson will pitch from a mound either Tuesday or Wednesday and could be in a game after just two or three more sessions.

With the Yankees playing the Red Sox this weekend, he will likely pitch then if he can.

Also, right handed pitcher Chad Gaudin has been officially placed in the rotation taking Sergio Mitre’s spot.

Girardi has also informed reporters that he is in consideration for a playoff roster spot as a long reliever.

Gaudin has no record with a 3.20 ERA, 19 strikeouts and 11 walks in 19.2 innings as a starter. He is is 1-0 with a 3.68 ERA overall.
