Yankees taking cautious approach with Youkilis

(Continued)

Youkilis said he hoped to play today, but Girardi shook his head and said, “We’ll make him go through some hoops first.”

As for Youkilis’ hint that he might not be as forthcoming with aches and pains, the manager said that would be addressed, as well.

“You don’t want something if it’s really, really minor to turn into something big,” Girardi said with a smile. “I will make that known to him.”

Notes & quotes: General manager Brian Cashman reiterated he will not be pursuing Johnny Damon for the outfield vacancy created by Granderson’s injury. “I love Johnny Damon, he was an awesome Yankee when we had him,” Cashman said. “But that was a while ago. It’s not something we’re going to pursue. That wouldn’t fit our needs.” Cashman said he received a text from Damon’s agent, Scott Boras, on Monday night and said the same.
