Jeter still not taking grounders or BP

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Apr 02, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Should be obvious by now, but Brian Cashman said today that Derek Jeter will not be ready to join the Yankees on April 6, the day he’s eligible to come off the disabled list. For the second day in a row, Jeter strictly played catch and got treatment on his left ankle down in Tampa. He’s going to have to start taking grounders and batting practice before he can get in a game, and he’s going to have to get in multiple games before he can return to New York.

• Phil Hughes will, in fact, start Saturday in Triple-A. That means David Phelps will be the Yankees starter for the second game in Detroit.

• Nothing significant to report on Curtis Granderson, who’s still tracking fly balls but has yet to take the brace off his broken forearm. Cashman indicated that Granderson is progressing, but the next step isn’t especially imminent.

• Also nothing new on either Michael Pineda or Cesar Cabral, each of whom is still going through their throwing program. Cashman said he remains encouraged by Pineda’s progress. “Everything’s gone great,” he said.

• Not sure the status of Ronnier Mustelier, but he’s not on Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s opening roster. He was left behind in Tampa to rehab his sore knee.

    the Musty Mystery….

    Seriously, though, hope he is okay. the idea occurs to me that he played through some pain before he just could not anymore.

    and Jeter is not superhuman…

    Grandy’s broken forearm – wow – for a fracture that they didn’t even see right away, it’s sure taking its time to heal. But I guess bones move along at their own pace.

    OT, but crazy stuff at RU: http://espn.go.com/mens-colleg.....basketball

  3. austinmac April 2nd, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    It takes 5-6 weeks for any break to heal. He said yesterday the doctor said it is “healing” implying it’s not there yet.

    The truth about Jeter is no one knows when the pain will go away. I strongly suspect it will recur in some amount with vigorous activity. He is ham like the rest of us, at least in this respect.

    Born amidst smoke and salt?

    I just wish they didn’t have to rename and re-sign the ballpark, but otherwise:

    Rich, I just read the story and watched part of the video. How he still has a job is a disgrace.

  7. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    austinmac -

    Oh, I know, but you know how it is -like when you’re waiting for your beverage to heat in the microwave with nothing else to do -30 seconds seems like a year!

  8. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 6:32 pm

    some ham tastes better than others, I probably would avoid jerkface ham unless chipotle honey mustard is applied.

  9. UnKnown April 2nd, 2013 at 6:32 pm

    That 13 inning game took a lot out of Mike Trout yesterday LOL

  10. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 6:34 pm

    I saw that video early on, that guy is a disgrace. He must come from Patton school of coaching.

  11. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    early on= earlier

  12. Jerkface April 2nd, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    Cool article on pitch framing: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs.....t-framing/

  13. austinmac April 2nd, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    There is no ham in trying.

  14. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    Doreen, that is absolutely true! I don’t use microwave much but the… 2 mins seems like eternity when I watch the digital seconds to elapse cuz I want food, dammit, the food inside!

  15. austinmac April 2nd, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    Doreen,

    Is it as long as waiting two days for another game? I hate off days, especially after bad games.

    I guess it will be cold tomorrow. I figure Kuroda can handle it after his baseball boot camp.

  16. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    The trick is to find a distraction, or something else to do – rinse out a glass; sweep the floor. In the case of our guys coming back from the DL I am at a total loss!!!

    Not fond of treading water. It is exhausting.

  17. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    Off days stink. What do they need days off for? They just had the entire winter off!!!!!!

  18. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    So if the Yankees take the next two, then one of three in Detroit, then at least split with the Indians, start of the season will be ok. Or any combination that leaves them at least .500 by the O’s series.

    Does it show how great Stewie art

  20. kd April 2nd, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    i hear you doreen. i want to see some yankee baseball

    the way i see it, 80% of tex, jeter, and granderson makes this team a lot better, they have a shot to win the division if the pitching hold up

    players like arod and pineda are just icing on the cake

    it’s early, i’m optimistic

  21. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    I see Baltimore ended up defeating the Rays. Did they get to Price, or the bullpen?

  22. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:00 pm

    Okay. I see it was the bullpen that failed the rays.

  23. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    The back end of O’s bullpen is very very solid, Darren O’day is a workhorse with very good stuff along with Johnson.

  24. RadioKev April 2nd, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    Swisher, surprisingly have a great time on the field.

  25. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Speaking of Jon Hamm.. any new instagrams pop up dedicated to the hammaconda ? I try to keep up, but as you can imagine it can be very difficult.

  26. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    Actually, I think Swisher ended up in the exact right place, if he couldn’t stay in NY.

    He loved NY and seemed to truly appreciate being here. If he stayed, he’d have been very very happy. But Cleveland is home, right? He’ll do well for them, I’m sure.

  27. blake April 2nd, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    @mashmore98: Baseball tweet! Slade Heathcott said today he used to pitch in high school. Nonchalantly said he sat at 91-93.

  28. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    Shame, I am anxiously awaiting the new season of Mad Men. Jon Hamm…

  29. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    Off days stink. What do they need days off for? They just had the entire winter off!!!!!!

    ———–

    Lol, I asked the same thing but RMS let me know it’s because if Opening Day gets rained out. Ugh, logic..amirite?

    It always seems like there are a lot of days off early in the year and then we stretch over August-Sept without a day off.. but really it’s because we end up losing the off days because of rain outs and junk.

  30. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:16 pm

    It’s stupid logic. Yesterday was not rained out, but what if there was rain in the forecast for tomorrow and the forecast for today was gorgeous and sunny. Would they switch tomorrow’s game to today? NO. So it’s just bogus!!

  31. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    So today’s day off is for nothing.

  32. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    I am recovering from a bad cold, taking a total day off. Could have used a baseball game. Instead I have Lohud and Candy Crush Saga.

  33. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Stuck on level 97 for two weeks. TWO WEEKS.

  34. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Doreen – As am I, but I’m not a week-to-week viewer. I only just caught up on all 5 seasons this year lol. I like the show, but I don’t think it’s something I could do week to week. I need to marathon my shows since I have a short attention span for all things that are not JLo or Yankees related.

  35. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    Hey I’m with you.. I hate the idea of teasing (whats up, Chip!) and having the first game of the season followed up with an off day is tease-city.

  36. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    Shame -

    I missed the first 2 or 3 season and caught up all at once. Now i watch week to week. And I watch the rerun immediately after. I don’t have too many shows that I’d do that for. Well, none. LOL

    I did catch up on all of Downton Abbey just after their most recent season ended. That was a marathon even over several days. LOL

  37. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    event, not even.

    and it was worth it until the last scene. Then I just said, well, I can’t get all those hours back!

  38. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Doreen, have you ever watch A Game of Throne?

  39. blake April 2nd, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    @JUP_8TL: Special off day, having a chance to watch the movie “42″. Such an honor to enjoy the story of a legend. #42Atlanta

  40. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Cashmoney -

    I tried to watch the first couple of episodes, but I just couldn’t get into it. :) Boardwalk Empire is another one that I try to watch (husband loves that one – he also likes Game of Thrones) and sometimes I can and sometimes I just cannot.

  41. UnKnown April 2nd, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Well it’s the whole pomp and circumstance that goes with Opening Day that teams don’t want fans to miss out on. It’s a huge deal to have tickets for the opener, so they put an off day in the schedule like today.

    Their is nothing unique about Game 2 of the season, so no they wouldn’t move it from tomorrow to today because of bad weather.

  42. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    I am currently being rocked to sleep by Friday Night Lights which I mocked mercilessly until I realized I will watch anything as long as I can marathon it.

    I don’t like football, Texas or high school… but holy hell that show hooked me. No one is even hot on that show!!! None of the dudes anyway. *sigh*

  43. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Unknown -

    Okay. That explanation makes sense. Shoulda thought of that. ;)

  44. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Shame, you are too funny sometimes. LOL

    I have not seen a single episode of Friday Night Lights. Is it still “On Demand” somewhere? From the beginning?

  45. UnKnown April 2nd, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    With that said, I hate that there is not a Yankee game on right now as well. But the reasoning is sound.

  46. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    I watch Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, and really liked House of Cards, on Netflix, as well.

    I definitely want to see “42.”

    —————–

    Looks like a good movie.. I hope they do the story justice and don’t try to soften anything.

  48. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    I mean, I love The Big Bang Theory – it totally cracks me up, even the 705th time around, but I need some variety, you know????? Golden Girls at 2 am isn’t cutting it for me anymore…

  49. UnKnown April 2nd, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Here come R.A. Dickey, I hope Swishalicious takes him way deep.

  50. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    Rich in NJ – My best friend recommended Homeland, but even more so, The Americans.

  51. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    House of Cards .. blew my mind. Only because I didn’t think I could love Kevin Spacey more. Should be interesting to see what else Netflix does. They’re releasing Arrested Development all at once just like they did with HOC. I’m sure this is only the beginning of their original programming.

  52. blake April 2nd, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    “Looks like a good movie.. I hope they do the story justice and don’t try to soften anything.”

    Previews look great….haven’t read any reviews yet

  53. Cashmoney April 2nd, 2013 at 7:31 pm

    I like both, Doreen. great production value, good script and enough intrigue layer with good deal of sex and violence, my cup of tea. In the case of Game of Throne I read the books which are well written. I do think initially it takes considerable time to absorb the myriad of names and geographical locations in an epic fantasy like Throne.

  54. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    Doreen – It’s gotta be on Netflix or if you have a general On Demand function on your tv, I’m sure you can watch it on NBC. They definitely have it on NBC.com and Hulu. Guys don’t seem to mind it either with Minka Kelly and all that football. It’s hard for me to find shows to watch with my fellas lol, Downton certainly is a tough sell lol.

  55. RadioKev April 2nd, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    The Toronto fans are going crazy already

  56. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    I think Dickey will do well at home in Toronto but personally I can’t wait to face him… we’ve hammer that dude.

  57. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    Maybe I’ll give it another try, Cashmoney. Seems to have a lot of people who like it.

  58. Doreen April 2nd, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    Well, whaddaya know? Xfinity On Demand has 5 seasons of Friday Night Lights!

  59. Poetkiosk April 2nd, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    A lot of excitement in Toronto! The fans are making a lot of noise, especially in comparison to Yankee fans yesterday

  60. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:45 pm

    Oh boy, you’re in for it Doreen. The first episode basically sets everything up… the writing is surprisingly well done for a show about football, Texas and high school (I’m still in some form of denial that I’m watching this lol).

  61. theREALkevin April 2nd, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Saw Andy Pettitte today in Houston. He was at his son’s high school game. Son’s name is Josh, RHP committed to Baylor. I was gonna go introduce myself to Andy but he disappeared during the game. Still was pretty cool seeing him there.

  62. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    “House of Cards .. blew my mind. Only because I didn’t think I could love Kevin Spacey more.”

    My gf was kind of at the other end of it. Didn’t like Spacey, loved him in that.

    “My best friend recommended Homeland, but even more so, The Americans.”

    I will check out it.

  63. Rich in NJ April 2nd, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    or… it out.

  64. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    Toronto fans deserve one day of excitement :twisted:

  65. Shame Spencer April 2nd, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Shameless is also a great show for anyone that hasn’t watched. I would assume it would surprise no one that I was drawn to the show immediately…

  66. RadioKev April 2nd, 2013 at 8:22 pm

    Wow. That cutter/slider combo is nasty for Darvish.

  67. austinmac April 2nd, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    Shame, you made me laugh with your TV show marathon comment. I couldn’t agree more. For BBC fans, I recommend Foyle’s War and Doc Martin.
