Jaret Wright can't wait for Monday.
Sidelined since late April with an injured right shoulder, Wright will return to the Yankees' rotation Monday to start against the Devil Rays.
"I'm definitely looking forward to it," Wright said yesterday at the Yankees' spring training complex in Tampa. "It's been a long time down here. After everything that happened as far as thinking that it could be over for me when I hurt it and how it felt -- to work to get back again, it's exciting."
Wright has been on the disabled list since April 24, a day after leaving his start against the Rangers because of pain in his shoulder. This is the eighth time he has been on the disabled list in his nine-year career.
"I'll throw a bullpen [session] tomorrow and get ready for the start on Monday," Wright said.
* ANDERSON SITS AGAIN: Angels OF Garret Anderson was out of the starting lineup for the second straight game with a knee injury.
Anderson aggravated the tendinitis in his right knee while making a sliding catch Tuesday in the team's win over the Athletics. Manager Mike Scioscia expected him to return to the starting lineup for the series finale, but decided to wait another day.
Anderson is batting .288 with 13 homers and 73 RBI. Chone Figgins replaced him in left field.
