Injury updates

From the Yankees:

OF Brett Gardner saw Dr. Timothy Kremchek today, who agreed with the Yankees’ diagnosis of an elbow muscle strain, bone bruise and joint inflammation, which have not fully healed.

Dr. Kremcheck administered a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and cortisone shot today, and agreed with Dr. Andrews’ recommendation from Monday of giving the elbow 3-4 weeks of rest with an elbow brace to ensure compliance with the rest.

In addition, the Yankees today reinstated RHP David Robertson from the 15-day disabled list and optioned RHP David Phelps to Single-A Tampa. Once his arm strength builds towards the 5.0-inning mark, Phelps is scheduled to join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Hamilton + NYC=A disaster. Almost impossible for him to remain sober. Maybe if he lived
    in Binghampton, but that would be a bad commute.

    I’m boycotting All-Star Game voting but the ballot doesn’t include an option to vote for Adrian Gonzalez’ spray chart.

    I hope Gardner is truly fully healthy, whenever he comes back.

  4. Warning Track Power June 14th, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    I feel bad for Phelps, but at least Robertson has returned. He can pitch the 8th and help the team win a lot of games for the rest of the season.

    DA53 tweets too much for my liking…

    ==================
    How about New Paltz?

    i guess this really was one of the best case scenarios for gardner. looks like rest for the next 3 weeks and then a rehab assignment…should be back right after the asb. not a bad trade off if he can fully recover.

    with job 2-3 weeks away from a rehab assignment and no set backs it looks like he could be back by the end of july…who would have thought?

    looks like we get reinforcements for the stretch run.

    “About one month into the season, his back would flare up and he’d miss 2 months at least.”

    This is much more likely than him seeing the empire state buikding and suddenly becoming a drug filled mess again just because hes in NYC.

  9. TD213 June 14th, 2012 at 5:47 pm

    Tex has basically turned into a billboard. Every day he is promoting something new.

    I loved that he wore a hat endorsing one of his products in the postgame interview the other day

    Greenwich Village would be more like it..

    “This is much more likely than him seeing the empire state buikding and suddenly becoming a drug filled mess again just because hes in NYC.”

    Really. Like you can’t find drugs anywhere if you are so inclined.

  12. Rich in NJ June 14th, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    “I feel bad for Phelps”

    Starting everyday in the mL is more likely to preserve his chance to maximize his earnings potential.

  13. mick June 14th, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    Why is Collins obsessed with no hitters?
    Going back for a judgment call on the 1st play of the game?
    Ludicrous.

    ————————————————————————————————–
    New Paltz might not be so bad, but who wants to live there?
    I might suggest Westchester or White Plains, but who would want to live there?

    Let’s just forget about Hamilton
    Yankees have Granderson. Very good player & no concern about drinking, drugs or tattoo removal!

  15. Villa Nova-Ya June 14th, 2012 at 5:50 pm

    Rich in NJ and blake -

    Exactly.

  16. mick June 14th, 2012 at 5:50 pm

    A trip to the Bowery should be mandatory.

    ==========================
    He is the successor to Jeter as the face of the Yankees.

  18. blake June 14th, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    Its the right move with Phelps…..he was valuable early in the year but hes not pitching at all now…..he needs to pitch.

  19. mick June 14th, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    3 weeks brings gardy to the rs series, 4 is after the asb.

  20. LGY June 14th, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    DICKERSON

  21. mick June 14th, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    Its the right move with Phelps….
    =================
    there is no other move..

  22. TD213 June 14th, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    I like Granderson but I wish he wasn’t so politically correct. I wish he was more like Reggie – coccky, brash, bold, intense.

    Honestly, I am kind of getting sick of having so many guys who well-spoken and corporate. That’s why it is going to be so hard when Swisher goes, he is our last line of defense. Same with Martin, who is a little out there as well.

    I would like having a rebel like Josh Hamilton on the team. Someone with an interesting storyline and plays hard, but isn’t a robot.

    We have Jeter.

    Josh Norris?@jnorris427

    Josh Norris?@jnorris427

    Just spoke to Staten Island manager Justin Pope for a few minutes. He expects Ravel Santana to be his opening day center fielder.

    Other guys he mentioned on that team: Exicardo Cayones, Daniel Lopez, Taylor Morton, Matt Duran, Claudio Custodio, Jose Rosario, Jackson Valera. .. #Yankees

  25. GreenBeret7 June 14th, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    Trenton Thunder?@TrentonThunder

    A big welcome to catcher Kyle Higashioka to the Thunder, just promoted from Tampa.

  26. astrocityfan June 14th, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    Still looking for a good place to eat in dc. Headed there tomorrow for the Friday night and sat games. Any recommendations guys?

  27. luis June 14th, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Hello everyone,

    GB7,

    You never answered my question about why you brought up Hughes while the discussion was about Betances. Are you down on Betances or is it that people is down on Hughes?

    About Gardner at least we know he will play this season hopefully. Good news, i thought he was out for the season.

    About Phelps demotion, i think it was the best that it could happened to him. He needs to pitch on a regular basis, he wasn’t doing that with the big club. He is more valuable as a SP than a reliever. I am very glad for him and his long term outlook.

    I used to go to this place on Connecticut just north of Dupont Circle called Bistrot Du Coin.

  29. fiveironfromfenway June 14th, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    Phelps was absolutely the right move. He hasn’t pitched in a couple of weeks. He is far more valuable (either to this team or in a trade) as a middle of the rotation type starting pitcher. He needs to get stretched out and get his innings this year so he can be ready to go 100% next season. Probably gets a Sept. call up if not traded before.
    Higgy to Trenton probably starts a chain reaction. Sanchez? to Tampa after the SAL ASG which leaves Arcia to start or perhaps their new draft pick.
    Would imagine that Austin and maybe Williams to Tampa soon too.

  30. Villa Nova-Ya June 14th, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Right. Phelps was a victim of the rotation getting stronger.

  31. tomingeorgia June 14th, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    astro,
    There a ton of good ethnic places around DuPont Circle and in Georgetown that I learned of after my daughters moved there. I used to wine and dine there, on an expense account, so that leaves a lot of $$$$$ places out.

  32. tomingeorgia June 14th, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    astro,
    Haven’t been to the Annacostia neighborhood since they built the ballpark, but I’ve been told there are a few good places down there now. When I first went there, I would have felt better with a company of troops. What a neighborhood it was then!

  33. tomingeorgia June 14th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    I hate off=days, particularly when we seem to be on a roll.

  34. tomingeorgia June 14th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Chirp.

  35. luis June 14th, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Hi Tom,

    Yup, the off days are a little lame. I wish there was a game tonight. Anyway, very good news on Gardy. I think it was the right move to send Phelps down.

  36. tomingeorgia June 14th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Hey, luis!

    We owe something to the Mets for destroying the Rays this week, don’t we? Especially after we swept them.

  37. luis June 14th, 2012 at 7:36 pm

    tomingeorgia June 14th, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Hey, luis!

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

    LOL We certainly owe them something…..Another sweep in Citi Field!!! ;)

    New thread ====>

  39. astrocityfan June 14th, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    Thanks guys! I’ll give those places a try.

    Sux for Phelps but it really was the only move. And if they’re looking for speed guys, who’s out there? I saw someone mention Span earlier. I wonder what it would take to pry Bourjous (sp) away from the Angels?
