Brian Bruney was sent back to NY to get his elbow checked. It was bothering him on Wednesday which is why he didn’t pitch. Then he felt it again today.
Cody Ransom has a strained right quad. There’s a tear to some degree. He’s going on the DL. The Yankees will get an infielder here tomorrow and will need to make a 40-man move to do so. Brian Cashman said he needed to talk to Dave Miley, the Scranton manager. One would think Angel Berroa gets the call.
“I have to pull a rabbit out of my hat,” Cashman said.
As for Chien-Ming Wang, the Yankees are claiming he has an issue with his hips that is related to his foot injury and that accounts for his velocity and command issues. Cashman said he would need two weeks of physical therapy but would continue throwing. I would think Wang is gone for a month and once he gets a few minor-league games under his belt, he’ll be back.
David Robertson will be here tomorrow. Then they’ll need a starter on Tuesday. Phil Hughes? We’ll see.
