Soriano update

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on May 11, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Rafael Soriano had an MRI and it showed a little inflammation in the right elbow. He’s day to day. The Yankees hope to have him back during the coming Boston series.

    munson-that’s so cool! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. YsGuy May 11th, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    we’re all day-to-day!

  3. beth May 11th, 2011 at 4:46 pm

    this is concerning

  4. Bronx Jeers May 11th, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    Munson15,

    Sounds just like Lou. Thanks for sharing.

  5. YsGuy May 11th, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    its okay, my Jah-Buddha’s got it all covered!

  6. munson15 May 11th, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    Erin..No problem. As a born Yankee fan, I couldn’t have been any luckier.

  7. munson15 May 11th, 2011 at 4:54 pm

    While this looks like a legitimate injury, I’m starting to believe Cash was right about this one.

  8. Rich in NJ May 11th, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    I can’t wait until he’s back pitching the 7th.

    Its sad I missed another rousing joba debate but I have to add that if you are simply going by stuff: joba doesn’t have the same stuff he had out of the pen in 07 and his stuff as a starter would still be in the top 90th percentile for right handers. Thus I don’t think you can use a stuff argument to put him in the pen. Every starter has better stuff in the pen. Cashmans original argument against joba in the pen is that his iinjury made it so he can’t warm up fast. Clearly just a tactic to avoid joba to pen arguments and thus I take his new stuff with an equal grain of salt. As long as joba throws mid 90s as a starter, which he did in 09 without losing velcocity deep in games, he should get the chance to start. He is going to get cj wilsoned by some team in free agency.

    Looks like the plan is to convert Trenton infielder/outfielder Damon Sublett into a pitcher. He’s been doing bullpen sessions and today, took PFP.

    It’s tough competition when you don’t allow any runs in 7 relief innings in the NY pressure cooker and get sent back to the minors.

  11. Tyler May 11th, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    GB-

    Do you think Sublett will be able to make the transition to pitcher? I’ve admittedly never seen him play in person but I know that he was pretty buried on the infield/outfield depth chart.

  12. Niki May 11th, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    He better be back for Boston.

    Munson15 – Thanks for sharing.

    munson 15…..Lou had quite a vocabulary….I remember hearing him saying things at an umpire that I would reserve for my worse enemy and this was during a spring training game….

  14. munson15 May 11th, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    Pat.M. .. Lou made up his own curse words. I still laugh when I think of him swinging the bat and not hitting every ball on the sweet spot. He was a really cool guy, and loved talking baseball with us kids that worked there.

  15. YsGuy May 11th, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    jerkface, just wondering if you followed through on your stated intention to boo jeter for not homering yesterday at the stadium and wondering how that went over with the folks in your section.

  16. beth May 11th, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    that is mean

  17. Rich in NJ May 11th, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    “As long as joba throws mid 90s as a starter, which he did in 09 without losing velcocity deep in games, he should get the chance to start. He is going to get cj wilsoned by some team in free agency.”

    I would add that as long as there isn’t any medical advice that would recommend that he shouldn’t start, I strongly agree with what you said.

  18. YsGuy May 11th, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    thats way minor compared to the stuff the law is going to come down on him for.

    Not sure if he can get to that level or not. He started out hitting well in his three years or so. I think that he was a pitcher at Wichita State

    The fonts definitely change with the ads.

  21. ADam May 11th, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    Could care less… D-Rob and Joba are better than him anyway… at this point hes the 4th or 5th best reliever on that team…. oh and he Makes 8 Figures (Thanks Randy)

  22. YsGuy May 11th, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    yes , in a way having sori out of the lineup for a few days could be a good thing in the long run. girardi can now much more easily skip past him and go drob, joba, mo and put it off on him not being 100% without setting off the ‘controversy’ alarms at the major media outlets. and as long as it works, you just say, i dont want to mess with what’s working right now…

  23. SoS May 11th, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    Can we finally do away with free agent relief pitchers which are like a box of chocolate and just use the many young studs in the minors to bridge the gap to Money Mo.

  24. Pat M. May 11th, 2011 at 5:14 pm

    C…R…9….You have just crossed the line of no return you MFer…Better start looking over your shoulder everywhere you go

  25. Jerkface May 11th, 2011 at 5:14 pm

    YsGuy,

    I missed the boat on tickets due to the 5 pm stubhub cutoff and was too tired to bother going to the stadium to scalp tickets, so I didn’t get to boo jeter :) I’ll be there today so we’ll see if he can deliver on his 2 HRs. If he doesnt its surely a sign that he is washed up!

  26. YsGuy May 11th, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    jf, what did you pay and what section? i a big stubhub guy…

  27. YsGuy May 11th, 2011 at 5:20 pm

    wow, ike davis likely headed to the dl, mets are just this black hole of bad luck right now. they would have been alot better off if wright went to the dl from their collision.

    ‘upstate’ kate’s krusaders takes another big hit…. :(

  28. Jerkface May 11th, 2011 at 5:20 pm

    Yesterday I was trying to score some cheaps Legends seats, but ran up against the 5 PM cut off ( I was going to get a pair in section 200-something right near 3rd base for 14 dollars as my backup). The tickets for todays game I purchased well in advance and stupidly didnt wait for prices to drop so I paid about 55 a ticket for 2 seats in the same area (200-something near third base).

  29. YsGuy May 11th, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    not bad, i did the same thing earlier this year, buying tix in the 300′s for $25 and then found out i could have done much better had i waited till game day. oh well, enjoy the game!

  30. SoS May 11th, 2011 at 5:25 pm

    Jerkface,
    I havnt gone to a Yankee/Angel game in Anaheim for about 4 years now. The ticket prices here are ridiculous. I paid $150 per ticket between third and left field seats bottom row. It cost me 6 bills for wife and kids. Wish I was there bro.

  31. SoS May 11th, 2011 at 5:27 pm

    It costs me about $14 for a single a minor league game. And here I thought i was getting a deal watching no namers play.

  32. YsGuy May 11th, 2011 at 5:32 pm

    the price always goes by demand, sos, they wont be anywhere near that cheap for the bosox or mets the next 2 weekends. this is the time to get bargains. it does show that the prices at NYS are too high, and that a tier pricing system is likely in the yankee’s future.
