Righthander Phil Hughes is scheduled to make his third rehab start at noon for Double-A Trenton, but when asked if there's "any chance" Hughes will be ready after Wednesday's outing, Girardi said: "I can't tell you that. I'm looking forward to his start to see how he does and to make a determination if we think he's ready, as well."

Eric Chavez (fractured foot) is progressing, taking ground balls, hitting and lightly running, but "he's still not where he needs to be," Girardi said.

Rafael Soriano (inflamed elbow) "felt good" after longtossing, he added.
