More notes on the sick and afflicted

Some info on our beat-up players.

Wandy:
Optimistic about starting on Saturday, not Friday. He'll throw a bullpen today and know more after that, but his strained right hammy is improving,
I was getting treatment and exercises, and it feels a lot better. The key will be the bullpen because that's when I feel in during my follow-through.”
-
Berkman:
Probably won't come be ready when he's eligible to come off the DL on Friday.
Coop:
“I know (having him back) by Friday I'm not too optimistic."
Ed Wade:
"He was sore today after running in the outfield (Monday). We want to make sure it's resolved before he runs back out there and runs the risk of doing something that makes it even longer.”
-
Roy:
Feels better than he did on Monday, after throwing off flat ground and being examined by the doctor.
-
Aaron Boone:
Will play Monday, and Monday only, in a rehab start.
Boone:
“In a couple of days we'll map out a play (time) schedule. As of right now, just one game on Monday (is set).”
Wade:
“The plan is to run it out for the full 20 days."
-
Erstad:
Played five innings for Corpus last night in his first rehab start.
