Injury updates: Jeter hits, Colon pitches, Feliciano gets on a mound

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jun 27, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The latest from The Associated Press down at the Yankees complex in Tampa. Sounds like Barolo Colon might be closer than expected.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter did not let a thunderstorm deter him from increasing his workouts.

The Yankees captain, on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right calf, took batting practice on the field for the first time and started a running program Monday.

Jeter took 30 swings in batting practice. He fielded seven grounders on the grass before rain forced a stop. After a brief delay, Jeter returned to the field for three light sprints and some agility-related drills.

“Everything’s good,” Jeter said. “Steps in the right direction.”

There is no date yet for when Jeter, who turned 37 on Sunday, will rejoin the lineup. He’s six hits shy of 3,000, a chase that’s been on hold since getting hurt June 13.

Other Yankees also continued their rehabilitation.

Infielder Eric Chavez, out with a broken left foot, took batting practice with Jeter.

Right-hander Bartolo Colon, sidelined with a strained right hamstring, threw four innings of 15-pitches each in a simulated game.

Colon struck out three and allowed two hits, including one to injured minor league outfielder Slade Heathcott, who was the Yankees’ first round draft pick in 2009.

There have been discussions on whether Colon will need a minor league outing or if he could be ready to pitch against the New York Mets this weekend.

Left-handed reliever Pedro Feliciano, on the DL with a left shoulder tear, made 15 soft throws off a bullpen mound,

Converted reliever Mark Prior, on the DL at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre because of a strained groin, is scheduled to throw off a mound for the second time in four days on Tuesday.

    So if he’s not coming back on Wednesday, when is he returning? Frankly, I think we need Colon back more than we need Jeter back.

  2. blake June 27th, 2011 at 3:24 pm

    Jeter gets 3,000 at home vs the Rays.

  3. Erin June 27th, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    Love that picture. LOL :)

  4. DocTodd June 27th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    Agree, we definitely need Colon over Jeter…Nunez has done pretty well with the back, defense is another story but will improve with playing time..

  5. GreenBeret7 June 27th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    Reliever/closer Chase Whitley and starter Josh Romanski have been promoted from Tampa to Trenton.

    Jeter took 30 swings in batting practice. He fielded seven grounders on the grass before rain forced a stop.

    Jeter fielded only 7 of the 30 ground balls he hit? He seems healthy to me! :oops:

  7. DocTodd June 27th, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    The bat, not back

    GB- I gave you a chance last night to shine but no reply.

    Any chance of the Yankees calling up Terry Stiffee, a switch-hitter?

    ———————————————————————————————————————-

    LMAO. Trader, I’m outspoken, but, even I wasn’t gonna make any remarks about that one.

  9. Yankee Trader June 27th, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    Would love to see Colon able to pitch Saturday against the Mets instead of Gordon.

    Any chance the Yankees will call up Golson whose been hitting .500 last 3 games with a homer, raising his BA .289. I’m on the dump Jones bandwagon and agree with Blake that Andruw Jones could be sent back to LA to greet fans at the turnstiles while handing out bobble head dolls of himself.

  10. blake June 27th, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    If he was able to field any if his own grounders at all then that’s impressive.

  11. blake June 27th, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    Trader,

    They have to pay him anyway…..might as well get something.

  12. Warning Track Power June 27th, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    Colon is going to join the team long before Jeter will. I never expected for Jeter to be 100% only 15 days after suffering the injury. His calf might need around 25 days to be 10%.

    So Colon returns, Gordon is removed yeah?
    When Hughes returns, who is removed to make room??

    JF- That’s a good one!!!

    GB- So you’re not touching that one with a 10 foot pole!! Bring him up, let him hit a homer and Sterling would say “it’s long, it’s hard, it’s deep’ it’s gone- a blast by the Tiffmeister!”

    “When Hughes returns, who is removed to make room??”

    We have to see what Hughes is first…..but assuming he looks like himself then my guess is that Nova or Garcia get moved to the pen. Nova may get dealt yet….we just don’t know.

  18. SoS June 27th, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    Need more info!

    -7 ground balls. How were the throws to first base? Jump throws? Flip throw to the catcher?

    -30 swings in batting practice. Did he get any out of the infield? How did his toe tapping look? How many gidp did he have?

  19. luis June 27th, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    Unfortunately Laura you are right, we need Colon more than we need jeter, even Hughes for that matter

    This situation always peaks my interest;How a ballplayer flies home and not to the town where the following game will be played.
    IMO, that is a lot of time spent at the airport.
    I just hope the limited amount of hours spent “at home” are worth the aggravation of having to board multiple flights to eventually get to NYC

  21. GreenBeret7 June 27th, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    Trader, you’re just trying to get me in trouble. In my younger days (just to annoy Pete abraham) I would have made a remark. I’m trying to be a good kid.

  22. luis June 27th, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    Blake,

    Why do you think Nova might be traded?, Who do you think the trade target would be?

  23. tomingeorgia June 27th, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    WTP,
    I’d imagine Arod has a NetJets membershhip.

  24. Yankee Trader June 27th, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    Blake-

    I’m not sure the Yankees will have a good “read” on Hughes before the July 31st trading deadline. Often big trades are made soon after the ASB.

  25. champ809 June 27th, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    When Colon is ready Buddy Carlyle goes…..Gordon will most likely stay in the long man role

    When Hughes comes back then Gordon gets sent down. But Hughes will not be rushed back until he can sustain his velo for 90-100 pitches in back to back outings I would assume

  26. Jerkface June 27th, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    Why do you think Nova might be traded?, Who do you think the trade target would be?

    I think he will be traded because he is a young cost controlled starter that is good but not good enough of a long term bet for the Yankees. He would be good for a lesser team looking for a cost controlled starter. Starters that arent elite or with a chance to be very good that the yankees bring up should be used to make good trades. Guys who are expensive or with less years on their team control.

  27. jackamir June 27th, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    For the first time this season I am feeling at ease with this team. I like for the most part what we have. I think with a little tinkering this IS a playoff team. Nobody looks to be invincable. We got a shot….

    OK. Hands off on that one!

  29. SoS June 27th, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    His calf might need around 25 days to be 10%.

    A Jeter at 10% is plenty. You cant measure his intangibles.

    Yeah, back when gordie was already in the Hockey Hall Of Fame and then played on the same team with his two sons, mark and Marty. He was fun to watch when they played the Blackhawks and he and Dennis Hull would mix it up. Bobby Hull would just blow up the sidelines and unload one of his 120 MPH slap shots from about 20 feet out.

    champ809-
    i was actually referring to moves made to the starting rotation, not the roster.
    there will be a very difficult decision to be made when both Hughes and Colon return.
    neither of them will be sent to the pen.
    that will have to be either Garcia or Nova(unless someone else in the starting 5 suffers an injury=stint on DL

    When was it ever in question that this is a playoff team?

  34. Yankee Trader June 27th, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    Jerkface-

    There seems to be a parity in the majors, much of it do to injuries. The Phillies are down Hamels, Blanton, Oswalt at present. Only the Giants starters are healthy at the moment, but they’d be missing their WS MVP if they make the playoffs.

  35. luis June 27th, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    Jf,

    I agree on your basic statement, but i would wait for the off season to do it, right now i think we need all the pitching we can get. In the off season, even maybe ST, so the front office has a chance to evaluate Betances and Banuelos performances and the workload they can sustain next season

    If they’re flying back and forth from NY to Florida, my guess is corporate jets are the standard transportation.

    Depends on whats available. I’d trade Nova for Wandy Rodriguez.

    “There have been discussions on whether Colon will need a minor league outing or if he could be ready to pitch against the New York Mets this weekend.”

    Tomatoes-Tomotoes

    Is there much of a difference one way or another?

  42. GreenBeret7 June 27th, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    SoS, are you hinting that I might be youth challenged?

  43. Warning Track Power June 27th, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    In order for Betances and Banuelos to make their major league debut at the beginning on the 2012 season as a starter, 2 other starter’s will need to be off the team.

    C.C.(i guess that’s possible given his contract, but let’s all agree he returns)
    A.J. will be there
    Hughes will be there

    Colon and Freddy G. more than likely will be off the team
    Nova may or may not be there. He could be traded or be demoted due to lack of performance

    I don’t know-Two rookie starter’s on the team with a limited number of IP does not sound logical.

  44. SoS June 27th, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    Is Hamels hurt? It shows him making his next start and went pretty deep in his last outing.

  45. hardwired7 June 27th, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    Colon rolls out of bed knowing how to throw strikes, and more importantly, get outs.

    If there’s anyone you’d consider just bringing back w/out the minor league stint, he’s it.

  46. GreenBeret7 June 27th, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    There is no reason to trade Nova, and certainly not for Rodriguez. There’s little if anything to be gained by that.

  47. LGY June 27th, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Hamels is healthy.

    The Phillies arranged their rotation so he faces the Sox on Thursday.

  48. Yankee Trader June 27th, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    I don’t thnk trading for Wandy Rodriguez would be a good move. He’s comiing off the DL with elbow inflammation, was rocked by the Rays this past week, and the Astros seem to value him more than he’s worth.

  49. GreenBeret7 June 27th, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    Betances and Banuelos are more likely to be late season 2012 call-ups than opening the season in the rotation.

    If he is too risky obviously wouldn’t trade for him, but that is the kind of guy I’d move Nova for this year. Someone under control for more than half a season with upside. Probably would trade Nova for Liriano.

  60. LGY June 27th, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    This is the best time for the Marlins to trade him.

  64. austinmac June 27th, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    LGY,

    I will admit I have had doubts if they were a playoff team. I did not anticipate Colon and Garcia giving what they have given. They still have s tough battle with either the Sox, Yankees and Rays going home early.

    I have been wrong many times before, and I hope they breeze into and through the playoffs. I still want a quality left handed starter. So, does every other team I suspect.

  65. Yankee Trader June 27th, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    With regards to Jared Weaver if I’m trading away the farm I’d rather have his teamate Dan Haren.

  66. SoS June 27th, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    Who would you give more credit to the great pitching this year Rothschild or Martin?

  67. luis June 27th, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Gb,

    I think too that Betances and banuelos are late 2012 call ups, specially after the season they are having ( Looks like they need more seasoning ). But in any case they should ease them in to the rotation one by one using the fifth spot to do so.

  68. LGY June 27th, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Wandy’s contact is scary because his 2014 option becomes a player option with a trade.

  69. LGY June 27th, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    With regards to Jared Weaver if I’m trading away the farm I’d rather have his teamate Dan Haren.

    —–

    Why would they trade Haren though?

    They need him because Weaver will prob leave as a FA.

  70. luis June 27th, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    SoS,

    I think both have to do with the performance of the pitching staff, see for example how Burnett was out of whack in his last start Girardi and Roschild were constantly consulting with martin, in the end Aj settle down and gave the team lenght.

  71. Yankee Trader June 27th, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    A-Mac-

    The only “proven” quality left handed starters, without current issues, that make my list are:

    Lester
    Gonzalez
    Price
    Wilson
    Romero
    Kershaw
    Hamels

    So many B&W’s to mention, but, “Casablanca”, “They Died With Their Boots On”, “Little Caesar” and “The Big Sleep” are among the best.

    And of course, you can’t discuss great black and white movies and leave out Citizen Kane. :)

    I doubt Kuroda would do better than what Garcia has given us so far.

    If we’re making a trade, shoot higher.

    I don’t really understand why you would trade Nova. He has pitched pretty well as a 4/5 starter. He is on track to win 15 games. He usually gives you a chance to win. He is getting used to pitching in NY, which as we have seen in the past, not everyone can do. I think he has a chance to be a really good starter long term.

    Erin-

    What a terrible Brewers lineup in that 1997 loss to the Yankees against David Cone and Cecil Fielder!

    Speaking of Black and White.
    Did you guys hear about how much Michael Jacksons Thriller jacket went for? 1.8 million. I wish I had that much money to burn. And we thought wiping your tush with bills was just a saying. I bet that person owns the 100k razor that just come out.

  97. DaveD June 27th, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    I’d go Nova + Nunez for Gavid Floyd or Billingsly. They can have Brackman too if they want.

    anyone know if jeter/hughes are gonna play a game for the Trenton Thunder?

    Kuroda has legit stuff though. I’m one of the bigger Garcia supporters on here, but I trust Kuroda more than Garcia in the playoffs.

    Probably trust him more than Burnett and maybe Hughes.

    not sure about Jeter, but Hughes is pitching for them on Wednesday.

  103. SoS June 27th, 2011 at 4:59 pm

    Anyone see the Derek Jeter picture as though hes being held up by Nunez? Like the shampoo comercials of Troy Palomalu.

    Nunez “You do need more time in the dl right?”
    Jete “Ahh. Not really?”
    Nunez “(gun drawn) More work on the dl right!”
    Jete “Yes. Whatever you say Nooney.”

    ==================

    Agree with that – and that is one thing that some people seem to be missing during all this rotation talk. This team is going to make the playoffs fairly easily. They may or may not win the East, but they are a lock playoff team regardless of what rotation they throw out in the remaining 80+ games.

    Any trades should be looked at with an eye on October and the types of pieces that can enhance their chances there. At this point, I don’t think anyone can say they trust Burnett/Nova/Hughes on the mound in October against a legit lineup and Garcia is going to really need to have his best command to navigate through a lineup like BOS.

    Upgrades like Kuroda over Garcia and such should be looked at in the long view of the season.

  111. SoS June 27th, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    Erin,
    Your right.
    The best play I have ever seen was WICKED. Its basically the prequel to the Wizard of Oz. Awesome. The pulled it from Los Angeles a couple years back. Heard it was still in NY. Not sure if they have it in your neck of the woods. Must see.

    when boston is big enuff to support 2 football teams, 2 baseball teams, 2 hockey teams let me kno….
