Rest prescribed for Robertson

This from the Yankees:

RHP David Robertson was seen today by Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla., and underwent an MRI to evaluate stiffness in his right elbow. Dr. Andrews has recommended 10-14 days of rest for Robertson before beginning a throwing program.

That’s good news for Dave. He could start throwing around Sept. 14 and that would give him ample time to get ready for the playoffs.

UPDATE, 7:11 p.m.: I’m factoring in the days he has already been off, which is how the Yankees have done it in the past.
