Three quick injury updates, and one non-injury update.
He got in a game for the first time since being hit by a pitch to the elbow on Tuesday.
“It feels really good now. Yesterday, if felt really good by the end of the day and I woke up this morning, it got better. You know your body. When you’re getting better every day, you feel pretty good. If it starts getting worse maybe, or isn’t getting better, then you start to worry, but I knew right away that I was going to be fine.”
He doesn’t like wearing protective sleeves, but he wore one today and said Joe Girardi wants him to continue wearing it until he feels no discomfort whatsoever.
He was a late scratch from today’s game because of a sore neck.
“He said he could have hit left-handed, but I don’t think they were going to change pitchers,” Girardi said
Long-term, Girardi said there is absolutely no concern about the issue. Short term, they just want to make sure he’s 100 percent for opening day. As long as he shows up in camp feeling fine in the morning, he’ll play tomorrow.
Not much of an update here. Girardi simply said that Aceves is better today than he was yesterday. The Yankees still plan to have Aceves pitch tomorrow.
Girardi went to check on Robertson during the game because he saw him shake his leg. He wanted to make sure nothing was wrong. Turns out, Robertson’s shoes were hurting his feet.
“Maybe it’s time to get new shoes,” Girardi said.
