Updates on Roy/Wandy, and LaHawk is getting his swagger back

On the heels of Bud Norris' superb start, we get some info on Roy and Wandy:

"I know I won't make (Tuesday) start, but the next start (Saturday) I may."

On throwing on flat ground for the third time on Sunday:
"I wasn't exactly dancing between raindrops, but I felt OK. I'm at least 75 percent right now. It will all tell when I get off the mound."

Roy will throw a light bullpen session today and may be available in relief on Wednesday.

(Today) will be a good test. And Wednesday I'll throw a pretty good one, and if I feel great I may try to throw an inning out of the pen and make sure I'm ready for game action on Saturday."
And Wandy is still optimistic about making his next scheduled start vs Milwaukee on Friday after getting an extra day of rest due to the scheduled off-day on Thursday:
“It's the same. It doesn't feel better, but it's not worse. They put me on some treatment, and I'm just going to test it a little with some light walking on the treadmill. The day off may help me. I'll keep getting treatment. I'll just see daily how it's improving.”
“I'm feeling better. I'm walking better, feeling better. Yeah, I got my swagger back.”
Aaron Boone will be sitting down with Ed Wade to map out a rehab assignment for the coming weeks.
