Kei Igawa arrived at the NY Yankees minor league complex on the 6th -- he got a physical and then did some running and played some catch.
Igawa - "If I'm going to be demoted to the minors anyway, I may as well start here and working on making sure I'm fully prepared [for any call-ups]. If I can put up numbers, I think I'll be able to play in the US next year as well. I really want to have a good season."
