Dave Robertson played catch this afternoon and had no problems with his bruised foot. Hes not sure when hell get off a mound again, but hes not worried about being ready for Opening Day.
As long as I don’t have any setbacks, I don’t see why I wouldn’t be, he said.
Robertson will be without a boot or crutches from here on out, and he walked into the clubhouse with no limp or any sign of injury.
Two other quick injury updates…
• Bad news on Dan Burawa. What the Yankees initially thought was a rib cage injury is actually a tear in his oblique. Burawa had an MRI and is seeing a doctor later tonight, but hes expecting to miss quite a bit of time. As you might expect, hes pretty disappointed. Seemed to be making a strong impression in his first big league camp.
• Austin Romine is scheduled to take dry swings in the next day or two and hes hoping to be playing in about a week. He said he no longer feels anything in his back, but the Yankees want him to build up strength so it won’t happen again. He called this injury similar to the one he had last year in Trenton.
