Nunez to the DL; Gonzalez called up

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on May 12, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees are placing Eduardo Nunez on the 15-day disabled list and promoting Alberto Gonzalez from Triple-A.

Mark Teixeira is going on the 60-day disabled list to make room on the 40-man.

The Yankees just traded for Gonzalez late Thursday night.

    Good move.

  2. yankeefeminista May 12th, 2013 at 11:00 am

    Agree. Hopefully, Nunez comes back healthy. As for Joba-Mo, they are a family and Mo will nip it in the bud. Enjoy your day!

  3. LGY May 12th, 2013 at 11:05 am

    Official ruling

    Both players were in the wrong.

    Mo was the first offender but Joba’s response was out of line.

    Mo needs to relax with the holier than thou stuff shssing a grown a highly competitive man in public.

    Joba needs to cut out the tough guy routine with the threat.

  4. jacksquat May 12th, 2013 at 11:06 am

    Today’s lineup same as yesterday (yes, Stewart catching).

  5. jacksquat May 12th, 2013 at 11:10 am

    I don’t think Mo was in the wrong. Joba is a loudmouth and was inconsiderate of other people around him. Maybe Mo could have said it a little differently, but you know this very likely not the first time. And if Mariano asks you to quiet down, you stfu, and if you have a problem with it you take it up later in private. And the “family” stuff is just BS. Call your family down closer if you have to yell over other people.

  6. Niblick May 12th, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Last I knew no player has exclusive rights to the dugout. If quiet is so important to the interview, it could have been conducted elsewhere.

  7. jacksquat May 12th, 2013 at 11:19 am

    No one said anything about “exclusive rights”, it’s about being aware of other things besides yourself and being considerate.

  8. LGY May 12th, 2013 at 11:29 am

    Come on man. This is a baseball stadium, not a church service or dinner party.

  9. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 12th, 2013 at 11:29 am

    I’m trying to visualize how this actually happened. If Joba was calling to people in the stands, I don’t think he could have been standing in the dugout, unless of course he was standing at the end, like on the top step.

    I don’t think Mariano should have shushed him, but perhaps rather called over and nicely told him they were having trouble hearing and hopefully Joba would have voluntarily toned it down. Mariano is quiet by nature, Joba quite the opposite.

    I’m sure this will be a nonissue rather quickly, but I agree with those who feel that Mo overstepped his bounds a bit. I don’t care who it is, you don’t shush someone, unless perhaps the person is your own child. Then all bets are off.

    I thought that had to be some kind of joke. Who talks back to Mo? I don’t care what Mo said, you just don’t do that to him, especially in public.

  11. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 12th, 2013 at 11:31 am

    And if they were looking for more quiet, a corner in the clubhouse or maybe even the manager’s room would have worked. Or the press room.

  12. rl1856 May 12th, 2013 at 11:31 am

    “G. Love May 12th, 2013 at 10:21 am
    I’m not exactly sure how Joba is going to stand on the Yankee mound again in a Yankee uniform without feeling the wrath of every fan in the ballpark.”

    ———————————————————————————————————————

    A few K’s while flashing 97 on the gun will take care of the problem. NY fans have a short memory as long as the player performs. Heaven help the player with a bad rep who does not perform however.

    That said, for all of his faults, I think Joba knows his days in NY are numbered. Either he will be traded or he will accept a FA offer. Joba probably doesn’t care that he is burning bridges behind him. Too bad really, because he has talent that has been wasted by team management. It would not surprise me to see him flourish as a late inning reliever for another team.

  13. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 12th, 2013 at 11:33 am

    “I thought that had to be some kind of joke. Who talks back to Mo? I don’t care what Mo said, you just don’t do that to him, especially in public.”

    I wasn’t aware that Mo had any special rights just because of his stature as a baseball player. Politeness is universally shared, and shushing someone just is not polite.

  14. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 12th, 2013 at 11:35 am

    “I’m not exactly sure how Joba is going to stand on the Yankee mound again in a Yankee uniform without feeling the wrath of every fan in the ballpark.”

    I think you’re overestimating the Yankee fans in the Bronx. They’re the same ones that booed Mo.

  15. jacksquat May 12th, 2013 at 11:36 am

    Well supposedly (according to tweets on right) everything is ok now between Mo and Joba. Great, whatever, just pitch well Joba.

  16. Crawdaddy May 12th, 2013 at 11:37 am

    I’m pretty sure the Yankees PR dept arranged that interview so I think the organization isn’t going to be happy with Joba making this a public spat.

  17. jacksquat May 12th, 2013 at 11:37 am

    I wasn’t aware that Mo had any special rights just because of his stature as a baseball player. Politeness is universally shared, and shushing someone just is not polite.

    Being inconsiderate is not polite either.

  18. BBFan May 12th, 2013 at 11:38 am

    Mo was already having the discussion with the media and that family who lost the child. Joba should have been considerate of that. It is not about who owns the dugout. It is about showing proper decorum under the circumstances. Joba is nothing but a grown up buffoon.

  19. DONNYBROOK May 12th, 2013 at 11:38 am

    Don’t count on seeing TEX until around or after the All Star Break. Hal is gonna suck every last dollar outta the insurance company.
    Chamberlain in general is frustrated and unhappy. He has been yo-yo’d from SP to RP at the detriment of his career\$$$. His mustach was an outright act of Defiance. His confrontation with a Yankee Icon was him making a play in front of family. And Now, rookies are exceling in what he perceives to be HIS 7th inning. This kinda stuff goes on in Every clubhouse, but the mustache and Now the confrontation, means the situation has gone outside those confines. Dealing Chamberalin ASAP would benefit ALL.

  20. Crawdaddy May 12th, 2013 at 11:39 am

    Trisha,

    They might have booed Mo, but he’s retiring so they won’t be happy with Joba either.

  21. Pat M. May 12th, 2013 at 11:40 am

    Joba the Hump

  22. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 12th, 2013 at 11:43 am

    “Well supposedly (according to tweets on right) everything is ok now between Mo and Joba. Great, whatever, just pitch well Joba.”

    Bingo!

    :)

  23. Mike R May 12th, 2013 at 11:45 am

    Think we could get anything for Joba if we traded him,to,say,Arizona or somewhere?

  24. BBFan May 12th, 2013 at 11:45 am

    Does anyone remember Chad Curtis from those glory years in the late 90s?

    When there was a fight with Mariners, Jeter was socializing with A-Rod (they were good buddies then) and Chad questioned Jeter and next thing you know the Yankees let him go, in the off-season.

    Given all the these good young bullpen arms, I won’t be surprised Joba meets the same fate for his spat with Mo.

  25. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 12th, 2013 at 11:46 am

    “Being inconsiderate is not polite either.”

    jacksquat, as you said, it’s over now so that’s a good thing. If Joba was intentionally inconsiderate then I agree with you.

    I also agree that Joba still has a ton of pitching to offer, so I hope he’s back in the mix soon.

    :)

  26. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 12th, 2013 at 11:49 am

    “Given all the these good young bullpen arms, I won’t be surprised Joba meets the same fate for his spat with Mo.”

    As I remember, Chad Curtis was not a real important cog in the wheel at the time.

    If the Yankee organization ever released Joba over this nonincident, any respect I have for them would be entirely down the drain.

    Let’s hope it doesn’t happen. In my book, the Yankees are still in an owing posture to Joba for a lot of jerking around, but that’s a story for another day.

  27. cs in la May 12th, 2013 at 11:49 am

    Trisha, with all due respect, I do think Mo has special rights.

    Besides, he was just asking Joba to quiet down…..

  28. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 12th, 2013 at 11:53 am

    cs in la – I don’t think anyone’s rights are more special than anybody else’s. But I do understand your feeling because it’s Mo.

  29. BBFan May 12th, 2013 at 11:53 am

    Chad Curtis was an important member at that time playing left field and even hitting home runs.

    In any case, I did not imply Yanks will release Joba. Either he will be traded or do not sign in the off season. In fact, Joba himself may decide to go somewhere to be a starter.

  30. RadioKev May 12th, 2013 at 11:54 am

    I think this is virtually the first time we’ve heard of a confrontation between Mo and another player. That’s pretty abnormal.

  31. BBFan May 12th, 2013 at 11:55 am

    I agree with RadioKev. Only a hot potato like Joba is capable doing it.

  32. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 12th, 2013 at 11:55 am

    All of that said, I’m happy it’s over. Really a seeming tempest in a teapot.

    And since I won’t be around for the game I will do my cheering now.

    GO YANKS!!! GO HIROKI!!! GO JAYS!!!

    Have a wonderful day, all.

    :)

  33. DONNYBROOK May 12th, 2013 at 11:55 am

    You guys expect the Yankee PR Machine to say anything other than, “Everything is Now Hunky Dory”? Get real.

  34. MaineYankee May 12th, 2013 at 11:56 am

    Howard going to be back in blue and gold next year?

  35. trisha - true pinstriped blue May 12th, 2013 at 11:58 am

    Oh come on now. Joba is a big kid and highly excitable. Live and let live.

  36. Captain Clutch May 12th, 2013 at 11:59 am

    On the radio they just played it since the beat writers were recording Mo so it’s on tape. Joba was absolutely screaming in the background like a crazy man. Mo asking him to be quiet is not a big deal and for Joba to flip out it shows how immature he is. A grown man can ask another man to be quiet. It really makes Joba look like a child.

  37. DONNYBROOK May 12th, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    The mustache was the tip of the iceberg. Chamberlain has gone outside the Clubhouse with his discontent, and Now has confronted an Icon for All the public to See. “Gone Baby Gone”, starring Joba Chamberlain.

    I agree with the timing, but not so sure about the motives behind it. I’ve felt all along that Tex would be out until after the all star break.

  39. Niblick May 12th, 2013 at 12:05 pm

    Alberto Gonzalez – the dumbest Attorney General in the history of the United States, and an even worse ballplayer.

    I think this move demonstrates the chances that the Yankees will give any young position player a chance this year: about .0000001%.

  40. G. Love May 12th, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    Niblick,

    They don’t have a young SS to bring up. This isn’t the team holding back a young middle IF. There’s nothing at AAA that can even approach playing SS at this level at the moment.

    It’s a good move because Nunez is having a hard time staying healthy.

  41. randy l. May 12th, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    “I wasn’t aware that Mo had any special rights just because of his stature as a baseball player. Politeness is universally shared, and shushing someone just is not polite.”

    mo has no special rights?

    really.

    because of a career of first class behavior from mariano rivera who may be the classiest player in baseball, i’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt over a loud undisciplined guy with a DUI .

    benefit of the doubt means i’ll wait to hear from everyone on this. i have no doubt mariano will say it was his fault because that’s who mariano is.

    “Official ruling

    Both players were in the wrong.”

    official ruling

    you don’t know that.you weren’t there.

    what we really need is some video/audio of what happened.

    but can anyone picture mariano being rude? has anyone in twenty years ever seen him being rude?

    can anyone picture joba being overly loud? getting a DUI? being undisciplined. just maybe a little common sense says mariano gets the benefit of the doubt here.

    as i said, i expect mariano will take the high road and say it was his fault and patch it up and move on. if joba chamberlain has any intelligence at all he’ll defer to mariano as this plays out.

  42. Sir Harden Thick May 12th, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    I guess because the Yankees are in 1st place, 1 game off best record in baseball, there needs to be some negativity around the Yankees..

    Whatever, just keep doing what your doing Yankees

  43. tbone1570 May 12th, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    The doctor’s and training staff seems to be intent on screwing up this season! First, the fiasco with Jeter’s ankle, then the issue with Youk’s back and now Nunez and his sore ribs! They need to accurately diagnose and treat injuries so they aren’t continually short handed.

  44. G. Love May 12th, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    If they’ve got audio of it, this isn’t over despite how much people want it to be. Francesa, Kay and all the NY radio guys will run with it.

    And Mo has never had a problem with a teammate ever materialize in the press like this. I’m sure there were disagreements with players in the past, but this is out in the open and Joba saying “We talked. It’s fine. But I’d do it again” is almost like him daring the Yankees to get rid of him.

    He sees the handwriting on the wall. Claiborne, Ryan and the arms at AAA can easily pitch the 7th inning.

    I think the idea that Joba was maybe going to take over for Mo next year is pretty much dead now.

  45. Niblick May 12th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Has Joba ever had a problem with a teammate before? Maybe Mo, or his interviewer, should have taken his interview to a quieter place. I can’t imagine that the dugout is particularly quiet ever.

  46. MG May 12th, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    Here is a simple way to describe Mo and Chamberlain:

    Mo: Cl-ass
    Chamberlain: Dumb-ass

    I won’t root against Chamberlain pitching for the Yankees, much the same way I dealt with Latrell Spreewell being with the Knicks, but his outburst yesterday and his contention today that, ‘I never regret anything I’ve done’ just speaks of a child.

  47. 4 NYY May 12th, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    Said it before and I’ll say it again : Mo’s pic is in the dictionary under CLASS ! ALL CLASS

    Joba wears too many of his mother’s “GENES.”

  48. Niblick May 12th, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    4 NYY – you’re an a$$.

  50. MaineYankee May 12th, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    Could it be that Joba has done this before and not heeded advice to tone it down?

  51. Madrugador May 12th, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    Oh if medicine were only a science then if’s and nuts would be candy and nuts and we would all have a merry Christmas.
    There is an art to medicine beyond the science. That is why people practice it.
    I don’t think it was the drs fault that Jeter sustained an additional fracture. Maybe the first one was severe. Maybe Jeter was a bad patient. Maybe Hal wanted him back too soon. Who knows but to accuse the medical staff of bad medicine, you better have an MD after your name and know all the facts first.

  52. blake May 12th, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    “Mo needs to relax with the holier than thou stuff shssing a grown a highly competitive man in public.”

    Without being there and hearing how loud Joba was its hard to say but Id give Mo the benefit of the doubt……he doesn’t act “holier than thou” really ever…..that’s sorta a slap at his outspokenness about his faith IMO. Mo wasn’t talking to reporters about an emotional topic…..

    It’s probably being blown out of proportion of course but I do think Joba needs to address it as the only faster ticket out of town might be stealing Derek Jeters glove

  57. tbone1570 May 12th, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    Madrugador May 12th, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    I don’t think it was the drs fault that Jeter sustained an additional fracture.
    —————————————
    Not blaming the doc for the actual fracture, but blame the trainers for taking so long to act on it. Jeter knew something was wrong and kept telling them something wasn’t right with the ankle. He was told it was “normal” soreness. If I’m a trainer and a guy like Jeter, who never wants to take a day off, says something is wrong then I would get it checked out. Instead they waited for weeks to check it.

  58. ObviousMan May 12th, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    Yea, damn that Yankees PR department. I wish instead we had the Donnybrook “everything is doom and gloom but I’m just being realistic!!” PR department instead.

    blake, it sounds like he’s already addressed it by saying ‘it was my fault’, ‘it’s like two brothers arguing’ and then, the fatal, ‘I would do it again’ and ‘I never regret anything I’ve done’.

    I’ll be really surprised if he’s with the Yankees after the All Star break, Mo may not care all that much but the front office will.

  60. blake May 12th, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    Mo was taking about an emotional topic I mean…..

  61. G. Love May 12th, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    I almost can’t believe a Yankee fan could ever write or say the words “holier than thou” in regards to the way Mo conducts himself on or off the field.

    Almost.

    The man is taking time to meet with sick children and people who have lost loved ones. He doesn’t have to do that. I can assure you he’s not doing it for press or to hawk some product he’s linked to.

    You want to defend Joba for being a big immature kid? Go ahead.

    But to knock Mo for actually asking him to take it down a notch so he could fulfill his obligations to the press in the moment feels completely off to me and makes me question people’s fandom to some extent.

    I hope it’s over with and that the radio guys don’t run with it or YES avoids it today.

    This team has been drama free this season. There’s really no ego to this current group.

    What will take them off track are the ego’s returning to rear their ugly heads.

  62. grouchonyy May 12th, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    Gonzalez gets dfa’d on May 15 when Adams gets called up. The move is strictly temporary. An outfielder goes down (Francisco dfa?) when Granderson comes back. Tex’s move to the 60 day dl means little. He’s already about 50 days out. He is still eligible to come back before Memorial Day (if he’s ready).

  63. Niblick May 12th, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    Hey – Mo wasn’t meeting with sick kids in the dugout. He was TALKING about meeting with sick kids. In other words, he was doing PR for himself.

  64. randy l. May 12th, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    “I’ll be really surprised if he’s with the Yankees after the All Star break, Mo may not care all that much but the front office will.”

    yeah, i agree. i’ll be surprised if he’s not gone too. i agree it’s one thing to have something happen in the heat of the moment, but another thing to double down on it.

    all players are not equal in the clubhouse. any player knows his place in the pecking order. for joba to run his mouth where mariano after he’s had time to think about it really says all anyone needs to know.

    it’s unfortunate it happened , but joba can take this tough guy act somewhere else. if cashman has any sense of humor and theatre he really needs to send joba to the red sox.

    ——————————————

    I think Gonzalez sticks around until Nunez is healthy. Adams isn’t equipped to back up at SS, so if you dfa Gonzalez you leave no one to back up Nix ( and please don’t say Cano can do it).

  66. luis May 12th, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    I think Nelson is the one gone once Adams comes up

  67. Madrugador May 12th, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    Yeah tbone any time you start using a freshly healed bone it is going to be sore. Jeter is not going to baby himself so checking sooner is not such an easy call.
    Criticize the staff for being to cautious and criticize the staff for being too aggressive. That’s why it isn’t purely science.

  68. blake May 12th, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    @BryanHoch: Girardi said Ivan Nova felt something in his left side playing catch today. Won’t pitch tomorrow at Cleveland.

    @jnorris427: That scratch of Brett Marshall in SWB tells you all you need to know about what NYY’s plans are tomorrow.

  70. luis May 12th, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    Nuno will start then?

  71. tbone1570 May 12th, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    Madrugador,

    If you agree that Jeter isn’t one to baby himself, why would you say it’s not an easy call to check it out when he’s complaining about it?

  72. blake May 12th, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    Sounds like phelps and Marshall tomorrow

  73. blake May 12th, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    @ESPNNYYankees: Think about this: Mariano Rivera just apologized to the media for having to deal with Joba story #class

    The General could out hit Nunez

  75. RadioKev May 12th, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    This story aside, the Yanks should think about moving Joba. He’s expendable.

  76. MG May 12th, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    this Chamberlain story is going to have legs since reporters were there when it happened and it’s not going to end well for Chamberlain unless playing for a last place team is his dream job..

  77. blake May 12th, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    @eboland11: Mariano said Joba apologized to him this morning. Called Joba “a good kid,” adding “sometimes we say things we don’t mean to say.”

    Jeter wants to play.
    Girardi wants him to play.
    Hal wants him to play.
    NYC wants him to play.

    He should be sore when he first starts playing on that healed fracture. How sore? It wasn’t until that soreness persisted for some time that it became a problem. How many xrays are you going to shoot of Jeter’s ankle? Too much radiation isn’t good either.

    All I am trying to say, is that saying they should have checked sooner is not as easy of a call as you would make it out to be.

    @YankeesPR: Brothers don’t shake hands, brothers gotta hug http://t.co/tEQqpkrQ2S

    Funny that the PR department tweeted this

    Suppose they want reporters to retweet it.

    Who knows if Jeter is going to play much this year? Not me.
    Ankles carry a lot of weight and move a lot so when you break them they don’t always work the way you want them to when they heal. Sometimes the only solution is to fuse them.

    I suspect that if Jeter’s ankle has taken this long to finally heal that he isn’t going to play much this year.

    Ty Hensley’s mom is now a RAB source…

    Good point, Marshall might just be out of the pen. I’d definitely give Nuno the nod.

    ‘@eboland11: Mariano said Joba apologized to him this morning. Called Joba “a good kid,” adding “sometimes we say things we don’t mean to say.” ‘

    now we’re talking.

    that’s what we want to hear.

    if joba did that, then it’s over.

    he can stay :)

    Very quick 1st for J Ram….K’d one of the best hitters in the eastern league on a nasty slider ( 3 pitches) , pop up….then another K on a disgusting CU #legit

    on another note why is the blog down to 200 comments during the game on a yankee winning streak?

    what’s up with that?

    If I’m a trainer and I have a player who never wants to take an inning off and he’s telling me that something is wrong with his (insert body part here) them I’m going to check it out.

  91. RadioKev May 12th, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    Oh Keith…

    The silencing of the naysayers.

    I think the idea that Joba was maybe going to take over for Mo next year is pretty much dead now.

    ——————————–

    I don’t think it was ever an option to be honest with you. I don’t think he had any designs of staying a Yankee once he was moved from the BP and I we all know he fell out of favor yrs ago.

    @BenBadler: Cuban 25-year-old star SS/2B Jose Fernandez leading Cuba in hitting at .393/.495/.593. Outstanding bat control with only 5 Ks in 185 PA.

    Can we have him

  95. Madrugador May 12th, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    average attendance at games is down so far, maybe it has something to do with that?

    He’s over matching them. All the Yankee brass is here to see it; hopefully, they move him up quickly. He’s touching 97 and is comically efficient.

  98. blake May 12th, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    JRm perfect thru 2

  99. blake May 12th, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    YF ,
    You at the thunder game? I’m watching online and ram looks dominant thus far

  100. yankeefeminista May 12th, 2013 at 1:37 pm

    Blake, yes. He is a machine out there.

  101. yankeefeminista May 12th, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    The slider and change are nasty. Lol.

  102. blake May 12th, 2013 at 1:45 pm
