Albaladejo headed to disabled list

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on May 09, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees have already placed 11 players on the disabled list this season.

Make it 12.

Jon Albaladejo said his elbow felt like there was a needle going into it followed by a burning sensation. I have no idea what that means, but it isn’t good.

Joe Girardi said Albaladejo would go to New York tomorrow for an MRI and will be placed on the disabled list. Chris “Frequent Flyer” Britton will turn around and come back.

This marks the second time this season Britton has been optioned out only to return the next day when somebody went on the DL.

    Britton is destined to stay….

  2. Bob May 9th, 2008 at 11:00 pm

    Yanks should recall Gardner,need another position player until Arod returns

  3. Chris May 9th, 2008 at 11:00 pm

    Maybe they should stop sending Britton down, and keep their pitchers off of the DL

  4. ER May 9th, 2008 at 11:01 pm

    When the last time we won a game on FOX?

  5. Doreen May 9th, 2008 at 11:03 pm

    OH, really bad news, Pete. There’s really nothing more to say than that

    Someone’s trying to tell the Yankees that Chris Britton needs a chance! :)

  6. ER May 9th, 2008 at 11:04 pm

    Melancon.
    May be it doesn’t matter anymore. Trends set at start of the season tend to stay throughout the season. This is not a winning team. It’s all over. Just close the Stadium already before it gets worse.

  7. stuart May 9th, 2008 at 11:05 pm

    I feel bad for abeladajo but it is not like Koufax went on the DL.. The yanks have a 2 game better record then Detroit when Detroit has a terrible pithing staff and no pen.. they have 2 of there 3 best releivers out, and many other issues and they have a 2 game better record then the yanks and we are worrying about; karstens, and abeledajo, and whomever.

    we have no excuses as of May 9th we just suck.. Zero llate inning comebacks, no tough outs in the batting order none. How many guys will have 9 pitch AB’s?/None.. Jeter is the least patient hit so far in baseball and Cano is not far behind..

    again there pen has been very good and they have nothing to show for it. they should have 5 more wins on the season…

  8. Fran May 9th, 2008 at 11:06 pm

    At least Britton doesn’t have to come all the way back from SWB. Heard they tracked him down at the Indianapolis airport.

  9. Rocco May 9th, 2008 at 11:10 pm

    May be it doesn’t matter anymore. Trends set at start of the season tend to stay throughout the season. This is not a winning team. It’s all over. Just close the Stadium already before it gets worse.

    did you even watch the last 2 seasons?

  10. S.A.-I miss Ian Kennedy!!! May 9th, 2008 at 11:10 pm

    Feel bad for Alba.

    So…Igawa.
    That didn’t go well at all. But he thought he pitched well? Did I hear that right?

  11. Barry Lane May 9th, 2008 at 11:12 pm

    Relative to Jeter and clutch hitting:

    Check out his RISP. Insofar as double plays are concerned, he is in the middle of the pack.

    This is an e xcellent team with outstanding management at all levels. They may not find a way, but they will be in the hunt, this year, as always.

  12. what the heck May 9th, 2008 at 11:12 pm

    Garland throwed pretty good so far this season, they will have five dependable and consistent pitchers as Lackey and Escobar going back. What do we have?

  13. ER May 9th, 2008 at 11:17 pm

    I think you just made my point.

  14. Kill-Schill(ing) May 9th, 2008 at 11:23 pm

    Did you hear Igawa’s interview following the game? He’s almost as deluded as the Yankees’ front-office that signed him.

    Please Cashman cut your losses and start White or McCutchen on Wednesday.

    I’ll forgive you a kiss if you act the man, acknowledge the error of your ways, and repent.

    BTW, Todd Jones pumped his fist at the end of the game today. MLB should suspend him one-game because he doesn’t act like Mariano Rivera when he closes a game.

  15. Yazman May 9th, 2008 at 11:23 pm

    “Say this for Kei Igawa, he didn’t show up anybody by pumping his fist like that rotten Joba.”

    Yeah, but I think KI almost pumped his fist that one time when he almost got a guy out.

    More seriously, I feel bad for him. But it just seem like there are some kids who deserve a chance soon more than Igawa does.

  16. chaossolver May 9th, 2008 at 11:23 pm

    maybe people talked about this before,but
    what’s going on with scott patterson? i know that he doesnt have the eye popping stat in triple a right now, but he can’t be too much worse than britton. especially briton’s been jerked around like a yo yo.

  17. Yazman May 9th, 2008 at 11:24 pm

    What if we sent him to Trenton, in the hopes that he dominates for a bit? Given his modest salary, might another team trade a good prospect for him if he looked good in AA?

  18. geO {yankees crystal ball} May 9th, 2008 at 11:25 pm

    Just call Chris Britton in terms of the NBA “Sixth Player”

  19. bigjf May 9th, 2008 at 11:30 pm

    Take it as a sign, Yanks. No more sending Britton down! You would have been better off starting him tonight anyway, so he shouldn’t have been optioned out to begin with. If I never see Igawa again it would be too soon. Pretty sure Britton could have delivered 3 innings and less than 6 runs before turning it over to the rest of the pen.

  20. Yazman May 9th, 2008 at 11:31 pm

    Patterson hasn’t given up an earned run in his last 5 appearances, but his WHIP hasn’t been that pretty (6 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings).

    I hope he has a great streak and gets a chance. Today he got out 4 guys in a row, including 3 Ks, so maybe he will.

  21. Kill-Schill(ing) May 9th, 2008 at 11:32 pm

    TWINS TWINS WIN!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. V May 9th, 2008 at 11:32 pm

    AND THE RED SOX LOSE – PAPELBON BLOWS ANOTHER SAVE!

    w00t!

  23. Kill-Schill(ing) May 9th, 2008 at 11:32 pm

    PAPELBONER GAVE IT UP. EAT IT YOU PIG

  24. S.A.-I miss Ian Kennedy!!! May 9th, 2008 at 11:32 pm

    Yes! Go Twins!

  25. Rocco May 9th, 2008 at 11:33 pm

    Oh that was awesome to watch… haha Papplebon.

  26. blackdragon905 May 9th, 2008 at 11:33 pm

    PAPELBON BLOWS ANOTHER SAVE AND THE SOX LOSE 7-6!!!!

  27. Brandon (supporting "Alex being Alex") (J.Santana HR allowed count: 7) May 9th, 2008 at 11:34 pm

    wow what an AB by Gomez then Lamb singles to win, I jinxed them :lol:

  28. David May 9th, 2008 at 11:34 pm

    Damn I wish I was able to see Papelcrap blow that game but I had to just look at it on Gameday as it happened. From the way it developed it must have been fun to watch. The Yankees are getting VERY lucky that these other teams don’t just bow down to the Red Sox like the Yankees have been doing to a lot of teams.

  29. gayle May 9th, 2008 at 11:34 pm

    Thanks you Papelbon my fantasy team thanks you as well although Fran I amsure is about to shoot you this week as he has him and he has blown 2 for him

  30. V May 9th, 2008 at 11:34 pm

    That whole half inning was fun to watch. I so thought that Lamb was going to strike out, rofl.

  31. MikeEff May 9th, 2008 at 11:35 pm

    oh WHAT FUN that little outing by papelblown just was!!

  32. V May 9th, 2008 at 11:35 pm

    Gomez is going to be an amazing player over the next decade+.

    The Twins didn’t get as much as they could have in the Santana sweepstakes, but at least they got one solid piece.

  33. Rocco May 9th, 2008 at 11:39 pm

    They showed Papplebon with his head in his hands slumped over on the bench… he should act more like mo.

  34. Jeff NJ May 9th, 2008 at 11:40 pm

    The Yankees need to give serious consideration to Dan McCutchen, the guy has 43 strikeouts in 46 innings. I mean what do we have to lose?

  35. MikeEff May 9th, 2008 at 11:42 pm

    well yesterday papelblown knocked over ALL the coolers in the dugout…

    it’s too bad the runs he gave up yesterday were unearned…i’d like to watch his ERA climb. at least it will tonight

  36. S.A.-I miss Ian Kennedy!!! May 9th, 2008 at 11:44 pm

    Paplecrapper made me feel a little better about tonight. He made me smile. :)

    But, the Yankees game still blew chunks. ugh.
    They don’t seem to like to win games when they are shown on My9.

    Anyway, I hope we see good, solid outing from Rasner again tomorrow and get those RISP home.

  37. the todd May 9th, 2008 at 11:45 pm

    They showed Papplebon with his head in his hands slumped over on the bench… he should act more like mo.

    hahah. classic

  38. Brandon (supporting "Alex being Alex") (J.Santana HR allowed count: 7) May 9th, 2008 at 11:47 pm

    Jeff it’s not just that it’s also his GO/AO

    50-43

    and his last 5 starts GO/AO 41-30 w/ K/BB 32/4

  39. Nb Soteric May 9th, 2008 at 11:48 pm

    Mo is showing Papelblown who the best closer is now and forever. Maybe if Papelshlong ever throws more than 60 innings he’ll be considered a real closer..

    Guess he ran out of water coolers to run into tonight.

    HAHHAHHAHAHAH

  40. Bob May 9th, 2008 at 11:48 pm

    Where is Jeff Karstens these days?

    Rather him than Igawa.

  41. S.A.-I miss Ian Kennedy!!! May 9th, 2008 at 11:48 pm

    Uh oh. Paplecrapper emotional? Showing he is upset? According to the Mike Francessa/Chris Russo school of thought-He should grow up.

    ;)

  42. x23 May 9th, 2008 at 11:50 pm

    Seriously, if the yanks are so darn low on Britton why not do everyone a favor and trade or release him. At least some teams will give him a shot in the majors. This guy has an ERA of around 3 with Baltimore and that one bad ST with the yanks in his first year seems to hurt him. I remember Henn having an excellent ST that year(made the team) and Torre constally ran him out there even though he can’t get anyone out!

    Seriously GIVE BRITTON A FREAKING CHANCE FOR ONCE!

  43. CaptainsCorner May 9th, 2008 at 11:51 pm

    The Yanks really should just pick a kid from AA and let him come up and pitch. Even if it is only for 1 start. They can’t possibly pitch Igawa again. You just can’t do it. If Girardi and Cash send Igawa out there against Tampa then they are really just giving up on the team because they both know it is going to be a 2 inning appearance because they are going to absolutely smoke the ball off of him.

  44. Jeff NJ May 9th, 2008 at 11:51 pm

    GO/AO? That’s a new one for me, please explain.

  45. Brandon (supporting "Alex being Alex") (J.Santana HR allowed count: 7) May 9th, 2008 at 11:52 pm

    groundouts to Airouts

  46. Brandon (supporting "Alex being Alex") (J.Santana HR allowed count: 7) May 9th, 2008 at 11:56 pm

    Jeff if you have a high strikeout number w/ the groundout numbers being dominantly better than the Airouts you usually have a good pitcher because he is putting the ball in play to your infielders more likely than not. Usually like in Igawa’s case when the AO is more than the GO, you have a bit of problems masked by strikeouts.

  47. Jeff NJ May 9th, 2008 at 11:56 pm

    thanks Brandon. Man McCutchen is impressive no matter how you slice it. Time to DFA Igawa.

  48. mel May 9th, 2008 at 11:57 pm

    Terrible news for Abba Dabba.

    Did you guys see the blown save by Papelbon?

    Don’t we have favorable matchups for the next 2?

  49. Sweeny Murti Fan May 9th, 2008 at 11:59 pm

    Yeah I was watching the Red Sox game on Yahoo! Game channel i was laughing my ass off when he blew it I wonder how many gatorade jugs he destroyed this time.

  50. CanIGetAMooseCall May 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Bring back Marty Miller!!!!!!

  51. Brandon (supporting "Alex being Alex") (J.Santana HR allowed count: 7) May 10th, 2008 at 12:05 am

    Jeff I’ve been saying it in Igawa’s case he had a GO/AO of 30-47 masked by 40 strikeouts in AAA, the Yankees FO read 40 strikeouts to 12 walks before he was called up and thought oh he’s going to be ok, I called it since Saturday night/Sunday night he was throwing more 65 % strikes in AAA but 40 % of his outs were via the flyball vs amateur hitters, now he brought that weak stuff to the pros and they thought he was going to dominate, who could have seen that coming :roll:

  52. Brandon (supporting "Alex being Alex") (J.Santana HR allowed count: 7) May 10th, 2008 at 12:05 am

    where’s my post ?

  53. YoDiDo May 10th, 2008 at 12:05 am

    It’s a travesty that Britton has to accept the treatment he’s being shoveled. But we can only hope that he will be given the SAME opportunities that those who “look” the part are given. I’m afraid if Britton DOES play to the party-line and lose his bulk (’cause I’m just about positive that’s what it’s all about), that we will see him, too, on the DL sooner than later. LET HIM PITCH — LET HIM PITCH — LET HIM PITCH –

  54. Brandon (supporting "Alex being Alex") (J.Santana HR allowed count: 7) May 10th, 2008 at 12:06 am

    In Igawa’s case he had a GO/AO of 30-47 masked by 40 strikeouts in AAA, the Yankees FO read 40 strikeouts to 12 BB before he was called up and thought oh he’s going to be ok, I called it since Sunday night he was throwing more strikes in AAA but 40 % of his outs were via the flyball vs amateur hitters, now he brought that weak stuff to the pros and they thought he was going to dominate, who could have seen that coming… :roll:

  55. Eric May 10th, 2008 at 12:13 am

    Igawa pitched to a 1.300 OPS today…. that’s just mind bogglingly bad.

  56. ellen May 10th, 2008 at 12:25 am

    Eric – it was awful to watch. What’s even more awful is they may actually have him pitch again, given the state of their options. Pitiful!

  57. Brandon (supporting "Alex being Alex") (J.Santana HR allowed count: 7) May 10th, 2008 at 12:40 am

    it’s a bunch of excuses they needed to put Wright or McCutchen atleast they would have given them a better chance to win, here we got stuck w/ beaver face :x

  58. ellen May 10th, 2008 at 12:47 am

    Brandon, do you think they were just looking to give him a chance to see if he really turned it around? Or do you think it’s a matter of , “well, we spent so much $$ on this guy we have to pitch him with the big club?”

  59. Brandon (supporting "Alex being Alex") (J.Santana HR allowed count: 7) May 10th, 2008 at 12:54 am

    “well, we spent so much $$ on this guy we have to pitch him with the big club?”

    yup, that’s my guess or someone in the FO is really, really stupid. Igawa has not been the best SP between AA/AAA in this system and my guess is they are selling him but no one is buying.

  60. Wang IS Taiwan May 10th, 2008 at 1:00 am

    What’s the big deal over not pitching Britton? He was no great shakes last year for us. And there was all that whining about bringing him up from AAA, too. He’s just OK.

    Alba is much better. Man, tough break.

  61. EN May 10th, 2008 at 1:14 am

    Will Someone Please Fire Brian Cashman NOW!
    Igawa and Rasner are starters!
    The only reliable starters we have are Wang, Pettite, and
    Mussina! Who is responsible for this situation?
    In the Bullpen we can rely on Joba and Mariano!
    Who is responsible for this situation?
    Do any of the Steinbrenners have a brain?
    Fire Cashman NOW and get a GM who will get us at least one
    more reliable starter and another reliable relief pitcher!
    Doing Nothing is Not an Option!

  62. DYNASTY IS DESTINY! May 10th, 2008 at 1:14 am

    Really just about anyone they have down there in AAA would have to be better that Igawa was tonight, no?

    I mean what kind of farm system do we have anyway?

  63. ellen May 10th, 2008 at 1:16 am

    Dynasty, I think we’re going to find out. It’s hard to imagine that they’re going to trot Igawa out there again for his next turn. How disheartening does that have to be for the rest of the team?

  64. DYNASTY IS DESTINY! May 10th, 2008 at 1:20 am

    ellen,

    I’m with you on that-it’ll be dreadful if they try him again…I mean how much more convincing do you need that he is not ready for prime time?

  65. ellen May 10th, 2008 at 1:25 am

    Exactly. It’s hard to watch, it must be even harder to play behind him waiting for the game to get out of hand.

  66. DYNASTY IS DESTINY! May 10th, 2008 at 1:34 am

    I just don’t understand pitching Igawa against the Tigers…

    They have arguably one of the best lineupz in baseball-on paper anyway-and Igawa is supposed to face THEM for his 2008 debut?

    With his stuff?

    I guess they’ll try Pavano next…

  67. ellen May 10th, 2008 at 1:37 am

    It’s baffling.

  68. Betsy May 10th, 2008 at 9:35 am

    This injury really bums me out – it’s the straw that broke the camel’s back for me. First, I want to say how sorry I am for Alby – I hope he’s going to be ok, but it doesn’t sound good. His health is the most important thing, nevermind my current state of the blues or how it affects the Yankees. As to the latter, Alby was a very solid contributor – this injury hurts a LOT. It really is remarkable how many injuries the Yankees have suffered the last couple of years. I guess I sound like a whiner, but I have to vent – it just seems unfair.

  69. UtilityMan May 10th, 2008 at 9:49 am

    Hey Chris Britton!!!!

    COME ON DOWN!!!!

  70. Lauren May 10th, 2008 at 10:04 am

    i don’t understand all the injuries. i thought everyone came to camp in great shape and worked hard during ST? what the heck is going on? players are going down like dominoes. forget winning – can we get through one game without losing a player to the DL?
