Giese on disabled list

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Aug 14, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

This release from the Yankees:

RHP Dan Giese was examined today by Dr. Chris Ahmad at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in New York. He was diagnosed with rotator cuff tendinitis and will be placed on the 15-day disabled list. The club will make a corresponding move tomorrow.

That rotator cuff tendinitis is contagious it seems. Now they need a starter for Tuesday.

Darrell Rasner could be the choice. Then they can wait until Aug. 23 to bring Phil Hughes back.

Oh, and Hideki Matsui will play for Single-A Tampa tonight, weather permitting.

    great, another guy who’s been solid on the DL

  2. lostseason August 14th, 2008 at 5:12 pm

    Stop waiting and get Hughes back now!

  3. Andrew August 14th, 2008 at 5:15 pm

    The organization doesn’t want to rush Hughes back and throw him into the fray, so I assume Rasner will get the start in Toronto. But jeez, I would much rather watch Phil try and erase a terrible year than another Darrell Rasner start. At this point, it would bring some excitement to watching a game that has been kind of lacking for the past, oh, 10 games or so.

  4. RSM August 14th, 2008 at 5:15 pm

    No, let hughes wait until he’s ready to come up. Rushing these young guys hasn’t been beneficial so far. This team isn’t going anywhere anyway.

  5. JT August 14th, 2008 at 5:17 pm

    His description of the injury did sound awfully similar to Joba’s description. This is the diagnosis I expected to hear.

  6. Chincey August 14th, 2008 at 5:17 pm

    Always good to pitch your starter in relief a few days after throwing 85 pitches.

  7. JT August 14th, 2008 at 5:20 pm

    I kind of enjoy watching Razmatazz battle it out with his mediocre stuff. That guy really has to PITCH and has to work out of a lot of jams. Way more often than not, it seems to me, he keeps us in the game. But if we can’t get Joba wins, how can we get Razmatazz wins?

  8. RayBlay August 14th, 2008 at 5:22 pm

    And here’s yet another ‘non-truth’ from the Yankees manager. And I quote: “It shouldn’t jeopardize anything Tuesday. … I don’t think it’ll be a problem. He’ll just have treatment probably tomorrow and Friday and be back in our bullpen Saturday.” (from an earlier post)
    Why can’t he come straight out to say “he probably won’t make his next start” – it’s not going to kill anyone to admit that there’s something wrong

  9. Mark in Tampa August 14th, 2008 at 5:22 pm

    I’m thinking Hughes needs one more minor league start. I wouldn’t want to see him in the 85-100 pitch range for the first time in months against major league hitting.

    If the Yankees are indeed out of the playoff race, the most important thing in these remaining games will be to have Hughes pitch well and get his confidence back to kind of jump start him for next year. Also, so the F.O. knows whether to look to him for one rotation spot, or have to fill the void if they don’t see good signs out of him late this year.

  10. Kevin August 14th, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    “Always good to pitch your starter in relief a few days after throwing 85 pitches.”

    Because three full days of rest is not enough to pitch only one inning in relief…

  11. john habyan August 14th, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    who cares. seasons over. tank the season and get a top draft pick

  12. Dave D August 14th, 2008 at 5:29 pm

    RayBlay, how would he know that before Giese visited the doctor?

    He speculated on the injury based on what his trainers told him.

    It’s funny… Girardi gets killed for being secretive about injuries now he is getting killed for revealing information that happened to be wrong based upon doctor’s examinations.

    What do you guys want? Girardi isin’t a doctor, he can’t diagnose injuries as soon as they happen.

  13. geO [Mickie James Roast Beef] August 14th, 2008 at 5:30 pm

    the curse of Joe Girardi is starting.

    First Florida now New York, it was a matter of time.

  14. Tank August 14th, 2008 at 5:30 pm

    This team’s the Britton express is back in town.

  15. Tank August 14th, 2008 at 5:31 pm

    *means

  16. stuart August 14th, 2008 at 5:33 pm

    Enough with Rasner in the rotation.

    Bring up Hughes, rushing him.. Enough with that nonsense.. The guy itched in the playoffs last year..

    Matsui playing tonight now that is good news…

  17. Marc August 14th, 2008 at 5:33 pm

    I don’t want to sound like I’m giving up on this season but half of me wouldn’t necessarily mind if the Yanks fell out of contention giving the kids (Phil and IPK) a chance to pitch in the majors without the pressure and get their stuff sorted out for next season without every start being a do or die situation.

  18. real lousy chowdah August 14th, 2008 at 5:34 pm

    I knew there was something floozie about that “C” on Varitek’s jersey.

  19. jennifer- I got your back Girardi August 14th, 2008 at 5:36 pm

    Tank, I don’t think so. Not sure who would be up. Maybe Melancon.

  20. Ben August 14th, 2008 at 5:37 pm

    It would be great to give Hughes another (hopefully solid) start at AAA. Chad Moeller said he’s completely different now from when Chad caught him earlier in the year. Mid-90′s FB and a cutter (new pitch) that he controls. Will be great when he’s ready.

    ESPN already has Rasner pitching on Tuesday, instead of Giese.

  21. Fredo Corleone August 14th, 2008 at 5:37 pm

    “The guy itched in the playoffs last year..”

    I think it was Joba who itched in the playoffs. Hughes PITCHED in the playoffs. (:

    I agree with giving Hughes 1 more start in AAA. He wasn’t that crisp in his last start. Good results, but his command was not great.

  22. Ben August 14th, 2008 at 5:39 pm

    Jennifer, Melancon is on an innings limit coming off TJ surgery. I’d love to see him this year, and we may still see him for a couple of innings as a September call up, but he’s not coming up to pitch another 25 innings down the stretch.

  23. Ben August 14th, 2008 at 5:39 pm

    Jennifer, Melancon is on an innings limit coming off TJ surgery. I’d love to see him this year, and we may still see him for a couple of innings as a September call up, but he’s not coming up to pitch another 25 innings down the stretch. It’s Britton, I bet.

  24. Fredo Corleone August 14th, 2008 at 5:40 pm

    “Mid-90’s FB”

    92-93 is not mid 90′s. He’s touching 95 here and there, but he sits low 90′s. Let’s not get carried away. He’ll help. He will not solve most of what ails this team.

  25. JR August 14th, 2008 at 5:42 pm

    The Steinbrenners need to buy out the Phoenix Suns medical staff from Bob Sarver. Injuries are a part of the game but it’s ridiculous how much the Yankees get hurt.

  26. steve August 14th, 2008 at 5:43 pm

    chase wright deserves another shot

  27. skeptic August 14th, 2008 at 5:45 pm

    this season isnt over you freakin sissies

    NEVER concede to the red sox NEVER EVER!!!!

  28. jennifer- I got your back Girardi August 14th, 2008 at 5:48 pm

    steve you know what you are right. I think he was done pretty well in AAA. Give him another shot. He actually did pretty well when he was up here, up until that game in Boston. :-(

  29. Johnathan August 14th, 2008 at 5:51 pm

    More like curse of A-rod…

    ’04- biggest choke in playoff history
    ’05- knocked out first round
    ’06- knocked out first round
    ’07- knocked out first round
    ’08- playoffs???????

    not a good trend folks

  30. Ben August 14th, 2008 at 5:52 pm

    Fredo,

    Chad had him at 93-94, http://emedia.thetimes-tribune.....fault.aspx, and Ed Price had the Moeller interview, http://www.nj.com/yankees/inde.....looks.html. He was 92-93 when he went on the DL, and he’s throwing harder now.

  31. joltin joe August 14th, 2008 at 5:52 pm

    sceptic is correct sir

  32. Phil August 14th, 2008 at 5:53 pm

    Fredo,

    It’s pretty amazing how you are better able to judge Hughes’s fastball than his catcher is. What other sorts of remote divining are you expert at, and how much does the government pay you?

  33. joltin joe August 14th, 2008 at 5:57 pm

    i cant believe that 80% think yanks are done? are these really yankee fans?

  34. Ben August 14th, 2008 at 5:58 pm

    Fredo, Chad Jennings had him at 93-94, and Ed Price had the Moeller interview. Links seem disfavored here, so you’ll have to hunt them down on those guy’s blogs, since my post with the links got rejected.

    Hughes was 92-93 when he went on the DL, and he’s throwing harder now.

  35. skeptic August 14th, 2008 at 5:59 pm

    fredo, the last few times joba pitched, he threw most of his fb’s at around 93 and only cranked it up (as high as 98) a couple of times
    so by your way of estimating, he’s a low-90′s pitcher.

  36. joltin joe August 14th, 2008 at 6:00 pm

    dont we have about 12 games with tampa and sox left? maybe i’ll sell my tix?

  37. joltin joe August 14th, 2008 at 6:02 pm

    funny. same guys who think yanks are done will jump back on if they sweep kc

  38. Bronx Jeers August 14th, 2008 at 6:13 pm

    I would ask Phil where he wants to pitch. If he feels ready give him the ball.
    Poor Rasner, I hope somebody gives him a shot next year. He hasn’t done that bad considering he’s got the weight of NY on his back every time he goes out there. I think he’s proved that he can at least survive in the Majors.

    Did you guys see the picture of the Melky-Cano debacle yesterday in today’s Daily News. It sort of sums up their whole year. Those two play baseball like two teenagers who just discovered that Pink Floyd and weed go good together.

  39. joltin joe August 14th, 2008 at 6:17 pm

    stranger things have happened in baseball. we can cut the wild card lead in 1/2 in a week.
    melky waves to the bleacher creatures while fielding a ball. he and cano are gone and buddy abreu too. see ya.

  40. Sal August 14th, 2008 at 6:39 pm

    Hughes throws 150mph now.

  41. R23 August 14th, 2008 at 6:42 pm

    What they need is a solid 9-1 stretch here.

    Hard but not impossible. Boston and TB play 500 ball and this thing is tight before you know it.

    The thing is who has seen anything from this bunch that says they can reel off 9 out of 10? Win 12 out of 15?

  42. Shackman August 14th, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    “Those two play baseball like two teenagers who just discovered that Pink Floyd and weed go good together”

    exactly…Vets know it’s Pink Floyd and acid

  43. SDYankee August 14th, 2008 at 7:30 pm

    Does this rash of rotator cuff tendonitis combined with the disappointing showings of Kennedy and Hughes indicate the Yankees do not know how to handle/promote pitching prospects?

  44. yanksince57-is this 1959 or is it 1965? August 14th, 2008 at 8:14 pm

    ahh 1978 pink floyd and purple dot acid – those were the days my friend, i’d thought they’d never end!
