Head trainer Gene Monahan, who has been a presence in the Yankees organization for decades, has reportedly fallen ill and will miss the opening of spring training.

QYTJfndOThere’s no official word from the Yankees on Monahan’s status and it’s unclear how long he’ll be away from the team. It’s believed that this will be the first spring training in 48 years that Monahan will miss. Assistant trainer Steve Donahue will fill in and the Yankees may add another trainer to the major-league staff to assist Donahue.

Every baseball reporter has a story about the time they got sick or the time they stabbed themselves with a pen or the time they got a bloody nose in the clubhouse, and Monahan is a great guy who was always there with a band-aid or a Tylenol. Here’s hoping he gets well quickly and is back with the Yankees soon.
