Cashman: DL possible for Jeter

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 20, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Brian Cashman just acknowledged that it is possible Derek Jeter will open the season on the disabled list. It is also possible Jeter will be ready to play on April 1. It is a significant unknown at this point.

Jeter had a cortisone shot today and will likely sit out a few days. The next week and a half will determine whether Jeter is ready. Cashman said repeatedly that Jeter has defied expectations in the past, and the Yankees would not be stunned if he found a way to be on the field for the opener.

Cashman said Eduardo Nunez will be the starting shortstop if Jeter is not ready.

Also, Cashman said the Yankees are looking at Chien-Ming Wang strictly as a candidate for a minor league deal.

    Signing Wang could add to their depth and make it easier to move Phil Hughes for a bat if the opportunity came about.

    It’s always struck me as funny that cortisone is permitted in sports, compared to the various other substances that aren’t.

    Cashman also did a jeter impression. “DL, my ass,” he said in jeter voice

  4. Rich in NJ March 20th, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    If he has to be the everyday DH for a while, so be it.

    Good luck, Jete.

  5. Niblick March 20th, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    Can Wang hit and play CF, 1B, 3B and SS simultaneously?

    If Wang looks good, they should sign him and aggressively shop Hughes. Start the season with Nova and Phelps in the rotation and Wang at AAA with Warren as the long man.

  9. blake March 20th, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    The Yankees have to rely on pitching this year and therefore they can’t trade Hughes unless the return is just a no brainer…….

  10. Shame Spencer March 20th, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    Can Cash do a big hairy monster impression and sit his ass behind home plate…?

    No?

    Ok, fine, be that way.

    You can’t just willy nilly move Hughes based on the signing of Wang; the latter has to prove that he can stay healthy.
    ———

    You don’t do it, period. We’ve got no idea how Wang would handle a season of work. This is a Colon/Garcia type signing, if he’s signed.

    But some folks will spend all day dreaming of ways to trade Hughes…

    “We talking MSM, natural HGH… ? Is good ole’ turmeric banned?”

    The above would all be good for Jeet. Some of the other natural (good) supplements that Bosch was prescribing include Zinc, Amino acids, Vitamin D, Omega-3, -6, -9: Essential fatty acids, DHEA, Resveratrol, Melatonin, Glucosamine, Alpha lipoic acid.

    I sure hope that Jeet is taking some of these things. Especially a high level fish oil to combat inflammation.

    RadioKev, yep. Trading Hughes would not be a good idea. We should have extended him when we had the chance.

    Ugh. When it rains, it pours.

  13. Shame Spencer March 20th, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    I’m glad they’re looking at Wang but if they sign him it will probably only be because this is the team he wants to play for.. no chance he won’t get an MLB deal from someone. Even if they just end up releasing him or whatever, I’m sure it won’t be big money.

    ///

    yankeefem – Jete should avoid grains/beans/seeds, which apparently have high concentrations of phytic acid and block nutrients as well as cause inflammation. Because of their anti-c*ncer effects, phytates have been championed without the other half of the story being reported. Apparently, you’ve got to soak, ferment, sprout seeds/beans/grains to release their vitamin/mineral content and reduce their phytic acid levels, or bump the level of phytase, the antidote to phytates. Nutrition just gets more and more inscrutable.

    Love Wanger, but an oft-injured 32 year old pitcher isn’t just going to replace a 26 year old with Hughes’ fastball.

  15. Warning Track Power March 20th, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    S.O.B.
    I didn’t imagine Jeter starting the new season on the DL. I was not concerned that his ST started late, but anybody with 1/2 a brain knew well enough that there was still a lot of time in ST for him to get ready.
    Cortisone shot should be considered a setback.
    Down for a few days and then possibly a slow process before returning to the field.

    Pruf, speaking of SS, I think Custodio will be in XST. Also I’ve read that Avelino is looking very good in MiLB camp so far on both sides of the ball.

  17. Shame Spencer March 20th, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    ———————–

    No one wants to get rid of him but losing players to FA without getting any return is going to hurt this club. Hughes becomes an obvious piece if they don’t plan to retain him. If they want to keep Cano they probably can’t keep Hughes as well, so they should be shopping him.

  18. yankeefeminista March 20th, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    Like I said, cortisone is nasty stuff. I wish that it were banned. Jeter needs to take all the natural sups that are good for inflammation. You hear that, Cash! I can advise you on what to give Jeet if you want to get my email from Chad. :)

  19. Warning Track Power March 20th, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    did i read correctly this morning:
    mlb.tv is streaming the game today for free

  20. yankeefeminista March 20th, 2013 at 12:44 pm

    What team is going to want to deal for Hughes when they can just sign him as a FA and not lose a haul? Cash is a lame duck, especially with Boras as Hughes’ agent. Great job there, Brian.

  21. yankeefeminista March 20th, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    WTP, I just scanned my email and I didn’t see the word for free, though. Where does it say for FREE? Didn’t it say, buy now?

    I think it’s more likely than not that if Hughes has a quality season they will resign him, somehow. With such an organizational emphasis on pitching, how could they let him go now?

  23. yankeefeminista March 20th, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    Boras isn’t going to give the Yankees a hometown discount. Plus the West coast is going to look mighty attractive. Doubt Yanks will get into a bidding war with their new austerity plan set in marble.

  24. Against All Odds March 20th, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    ————————–

    Hoping that Phelps and Nova have quality seasons and the banking on Pineda in the mix. If Hughes has a good season he’s looking to make Anibal Sanchez money.

  25. Against All Odds March 20th, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Hughes isn’t a Boras client. Is he?

  26. UnKnown March 20th, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    It’s going to have to be really bad for Jeter to start the year on the dl. Might be the best though considering it is such a long year. Better he start the year fully healthy.
    However, we have so many guys out already I don’t know if we can afford Jeter to be out as well to start the season.

    I read the email again and you are correct, the word FREE does not exist.
    basically says watch the game streamed live, no blackouts. i assumed that meant it would
    be free to all.

  28. mick March 20th, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    Jeter as the everyday DH?
    Lose Hafners bat?
    DL Jete if you have to.

    We have a bunch of these alleged SS prospect with nice tools. So many, though, play off the position by the time they reach the mid and upper levels. We can always hope at least one turns out.

  31. yankeefeminista March 20th, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    WTP, I assumed the same, and then realized, wait, I never saw the word “free,” I just assumed it. Luckily, I have mlb-tv, but that is kind of deceptive… Normally, in the regular season when they advertise like that, they are offering the one free game from the schedule. :roll:

  32. yankeefeminista March 20th, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    Odds, I was questioning that myself. Hughes was with CAA Sports; maybe he still is. I was probably thinking of Cano…

  33. blake March 20th, 2013 at 12:57 pm

    Andrew Marchand ?@AndrewMarchand 5m
    In the blog, I disagree with Colin as I think Cano is an equal opportunity non-hustler in certain situations http://espn.go.com/blog/new-yo.....der-for-dr

    lol

  34. Rich in NJ March 20th, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    v. RHP in 2012:

    Hafner: .241 .361 .437 .798
    Jeter: .294 .346 .377 .723

    I’ll live with the guy who put the ball in play a lot more in order to keep him sharp when he is healed up.

    ….
    As far as the Steinbrenners go, I like their new approach to winning that seems to work well for other teams. The only weak link is Cashman who can’t make good trades or develop talent internally.
    ///

    Well, the problem though is that Cashman CAN’T seem to make decent trades and that he and his manager – and whoever else is weighing in – have arrived at such a narrow definition of what can pass as “a Yankee” that they’ve traded young upside bats who don’t meet their rigid criteria, not seeming to get that they’re taking a huge talent hit for some misguided ideal they have (see catcher position).

    So Steinbrenner’s approach can’t be championed, if he retains a GM/manager duo who have a flaky concept that undermines the team’s own talents; if you’re not shelling out for that talent, and it’s neither coming from within or in trades… how are you skating by with a lower budget plan??

    Steinbrenner’s new paradigm stinks – because his GM can’t make it work.

    I bet you and I are not the only recipients of that e-mail that were fooled.
    Oh well, I am recording the game on ESPN2
    Just for fun I will log on to mlb.tv at game time to see if the stream is actually FREE

  37. Shame Spencer March 20th, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    fem – Teams give up a fair amount for players they know they’ll only have for half a season all the time. If they feel it’s a difference maker by July, I’m sure teams would be interested.

    They cannot keep both Hughes and Cano. It will completely screw them from 2014-16 assuming they want to be at $177.

    Against All Odds March 20th, 2013 at 12:50 pm
    Hughes isn’t a Boras client. Is he?

    Baseball reference has him down with CAA and Nez Balelo, so I do not think he is a Boras client.

  39. Carly March 20th, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    For me, the Yankees need to have a lefty bat vs. righties at 1b.

    Morneau probably is not going to happen this early in the season.

    Other names might be Carlos Pena, Daric Barton, Justin Smoak. I highly doubt Garret Jones, though the Pirates appear to love the Yanks farm system.

  40. J. Alfred Prufrock March 20th, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Whenever I turn on the car radio and I hear that “The ‘herd” is on, the radio automatically goes off.

    To begin with, I can’t get past the guy’s strident voice.

  41. J. Alfred Prufrock March 20th, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    By the way, congrats to Robi and the DR gang. :D

    I’m glad he raked and I bet he feels in a great place to jump into the season.

  42. David in Cal March 20th, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    Whatever any official announcement is, there’s chance that things will be even worse. That’s why I’m so upset about the Jeter announcement. If it just means he misses a handful of games, that’s one thing. But, if it means something a lot worse,….
