News on Duncan and Pavano

From George King and Joel Sherman:

Cashman couldn't guarantee Shelley Duncan will be ready when spring training opens. Duncan recently was treated for a blood clot in his arm.


With a need for space on the 40-man roster, the Yankees are about to approach "American Idle" Carl Pavano. Their plan is to release him then invite him to spring training on a minor-league deal. Pavano had Tommy John surgery last summer. The minor-league offer may have something to do with collecting insurance money on Pavano's four-year, $40 million contract that expires after the 2008 season. (New York Post)

Hopefully all is well with Duncan. The Yankees didn't offer arbitration to Doug Mientkiewicz, so their only other real first base options are Jason Giambi and Wilson Betemit.

No arguments on Pavano's situation. If he's not playing, he obviously shouldn't be on the Major League roster.

Invite Pavano to go lay on a train track.
