Mitre out with sore left side

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 14, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Sergio Mitre woke up with some stiffness in his left side on Sunday. He told the Yankees about it, and they decided to shut him down for a few days. He’s hoping to throw again later this week.

The problem is in a similar but not identical spot as the oblique injury that put him in the disabled list last year. This is on his back, last year’s injury was closer to his stomach.

Mitre said he does not believe this will
impact his chances of making the rotation. He said the Yankees have seen him and know what he can do.

    This might open the door for Prior to make the team…

    re-post

    Although he ticketed for AAA to start the season, it would be good to see Mark Prior as the long man out of the bullpen. Need to see more of Colon before giving him a major league contract. He’ll get 2 more starts to prove his worth.

    Happy Birthday! What a great birthday surprise. I knew he was pitching today but when I saw my twitter saying he was starting I got a mix of nervousness and excitement. He has pretty good defense behind him tonight so hopefully he doesn’t get tortured with balls that roll between infielders since that happens to him a lot. It should be a fun game for him though regardless.

    Sarasota is about an hour away and then I’d have to buy a ticket and expose myself to Red Sox fans so ill just watch it on TV.

    Thanks, tyf! I laughed out loud when I saw Manny was not only pitching, but starting. Yes, it should be good for him. If he stays on this sched, I am guessing he won’t pitch in the opening home series for Trenton, but in the second one.

    Are Red Sox fans that bad down there even in an exhibition game?

    I think they’d make Colon the long man before Prior….he’s said he would accept that role and Prior himself has said he needed minor league time. Doesn’t sound like Mitre’s injury is significant though anyway.

    Who wants to help a confused person out?

    Are they showing old footage of Babe, Cobbs, etc, on MLB network tonight? Or can you only look at the content online?

    BloggingBombers Banuelos had been scheduled to pitch in relief on Monday night anyway. This is not a major development.

    eboland11 For those trying to make something of Banuelos starting, Cashman has said, all spring, there is “zero” chance he breaks camp with Yankees

  7. ac1 March 14th, 2011 at 11:49 am

    Colon has said he would be ok at long relief… Garcia has not, and Nova should be in the rotation. This would be the way to get all three up there, and if Garcia struggles, they have Colon still on the roster in case no minor league pitcher steps up by then.

    Don’t know if anyone saw this, but Buffalo Sabres great winger from their 70s French Connection Line was killed in a car accident Sunday. Martin was teamed with Rene Robert and Gilbert Perreault.

    Shame, the clips/videos are on TV tonight

  10. blake March 14th, 2011 at 11:51 am

    I tell ya whose swing I like when watching old film…..Lou Gerhig’s. It wasn’t as pretty as the Babe’s or Williams but man was it functional. He kept the bat in the zone forever…..

    yankeefeminista -

    I’m waiting, too, on Trenton Tickets. Although with all the excitement about Banuelos and Betances, that might not be the best approach.
    _______
    As per what I wrote to tyf above, although it is early so hard to know for sure, I am thinking if Manny stays on this sched, he won’t pitch in the more popular weekend games. I am guessing weekdays (or Sunday) at the earliest. I have to say too, my thought is one can always get tickets to Trenton even if the Killer B’s are all the rage there this year. I have never not been able to walk in. I think I even walked in for Pettitte. Only time I recall that it was difficult getting tickets was when Jeter rehabbed in Trenton.

    I did see that GB7.. I’m a huge hockey fan, what a terrible loss. I heard he had a heart attack and thats how he crashed. Lucky no one else was hurt/killed.

  13. Erin March 14th, 2011 at 11:51 am

    It’s an epidemic:

    Ledger_Yankees Joba’s also got some soreness in his left side. Girardi doesn’t think it’s serious.

    The game is on TV tonight – ESPN2.

    And thanks GB7! My computer at work is older than I am and for some reason I can’t get on MLB.com without the whole thing exploding.

    Yes, I saw your post last night. What a tragedy. He was only 59. Great great line.

  17. GreenBeret7 March 14th, 2011 at 11:54 am

    Shame, wasn’t sure what the deal was on Martin, other than they said it was a medical emergency, so he must have felt it coming on and tried getting to a hospital. Sad. That was a great scoring line.

    So, that’s it. I thought it was the score, but was wondering why Joba didn’t pitch yesterday after he was listed as pitching in relief.

  19. vrsce March 14th, 2011 at 11:58 am

    Nothing compared to the J Santana mess. Cashman was right on that call.

  20. ac1 March 14th, 2011 at 11:59 am

    i feel like similar injuries come in bunches each year. remember a few years back when everyone seemed to be pulling hamstrings? this year, it is the oblique.

  21. Shame Spencer March 14th, 2011 at 12:00 pm

    GB7 – It really is terrible. That line was probably ranks as one of the best assembled in the NHL.

  22. Doreen March 14th, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    Ouch.

    I hope it’s nothing serious for Joba (and Sergio). Just goes to show how fragile it all is, though.

    *********************

    Hmmmmm… Johnny Damon bobblehead would make an excellent gift for someone on this blog…….

    Shame, always enjoyed watching those guys. Martin, for whatever reason was always a target for cheap shots. He’s the main reason for helmets being manditory in hockey now. Hockey has always had some great names for their scoring lines.

    The Kraut Line,

    The Kid Line, they had 3 players ages of 17, 18 and 23

    the rangers had the GAG Line, consisting of Jean Ratelle, Rod Gilbert and Vic Hatfield. GAG stood for “Goal A Game”.

    Islanders had The Long Island Electric Company with Mike Bossy, brian Trottier and Clark Gillies.

    The LA Kings had The Triple Crown Line with Marcel Dionne, Charlie Simmers and Dave Taylor.

    Detroit had The Production Line with Gordie Howe, Ted Lindsey and Alex Delvecchio.

    RIP Rick Martin
