Didi Gregorius will begin a rehab assignment in Tampa tomorrow night. It likely will last less than 20 days, manager Aaron Boone said. After 2-3 games in Tampa, he'll probably be moved to Scranton for a few more. He's going to be in pinstripes really soon. Said Boone: "Since the surgery, it's kind of gone how we hoped. Every step of the way. And this is another indication of that, another big step in working his way back that looks like it's going to be sooner rather than later now ... Didi's just a ballplayer, man. He's tough. He likes to play. He likes all that goes with it. So I haven't been surprised at all. When I talked to him in the winter, it was like, ‘I'll be ready to go. I'm ready now.'"

As James Paxton indicated in Tampa today, tomorrow will be a big day in figuring out what his next steps may be. Aaron Boone just said he heard Paxton threw well, and showed "all the things we wanted to see." The problem, though, is Paxton still felt some discomfort in his knee. The goal is for him to feel good from a discomfort/soreness standpoint tomorrow morning. If he doesn't, they'll have to figure out what else he'd need to do next before returning to the rotation. Oh, and do the Yankees have enough pitching to possibly cover another one of Paxton's turns (not to mention CC Sabathia's), Boone smiled and said yes. "We'll have to mix and match and get creative," but the Yanks have that pitching, he said.
