Bone bruise comes as a relief for Yankees

“This is as good as it gets for us.”

That’s how Joe Girardi put it. Test results on Dave Roberton’s right foot revealed a bone bruise, which is pretty much the best-case scenario. He’ll stay in a walking boot through Sunday, and probably do some throwing from a chair to keep his arm strong. Girardi believe he’ll have his setup man on Opening Day.

“I would think,” Girardi said. “But I can’t tell you how it’s going to heal.”

Obviously there’s still some risk here. The Yankees won’t let Robertson get back into a game until he’s pain free, and there’s a chance this thing will take longer than expected, but given the alternatives, a bone bruise came as a relief to the Yankees.

One other injury update…

Eduardo Nunez was sent forĀ a CT scan on his injured right hand, but that test came back negative. He went for the test after feeling more sore than expected after batting practice yesterday. The Yankees told him to skip batting practice today and they’ll see how he progresses.
