YANKS' IRABU REPORTS IMPROVEMENT IN ELBOW

New York Yankees pitcher Hideki Irabu reported improvement in his injured right elbow and will throw off a mound later this week.

New York manager Joe Torre said Monday the team will decide following the session if the pitcher will remain in Florida when the Yankees break camp Friday.

Cuban defector Orlando Hernandez will likely throw batting practice against major league hitters Wednesday. He had his second bullpen outing Monday and looked impressive during a 13-minute, 72-pitch session.
