* Phil Hughes will throw two innings in the GCL on Monday. He will soon be activated off the DL and optioned. Cashman would not predict whether Hughes would return to the majors. Cash said that teams are clamoring for Hughes in trade talks but he will not deal him.
* Carl Pavano is scheduled to start a GCL game on Tuesday.
* Ross Ohlendorf has pitched so well as a starter for Scranton that he is being considered as a starter again.
* Cashman is not optimistic about making a trade. “But it only takes one call.” He drove up to Boston today and was on the phone the entire time.
* On the subject of Barry Bonds, Cashman would not rule it out because he never rules anything about. But he said he has not spoken to Jeff Borris, Bonds’ agent. So it’s not happening and never was.
* Brian Bruney needs more work on his velocity and command before they bring him back.
