A few quick injury updates

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jul 17, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

A few relatively minor injury updates from Brian Cashman. No ground-breaking development with any of these guys…

Alex RodriguezAlex Rodriguez
His rehab assignment is moving up to Triple-A tomorrow, and the Yankees are still targeting Monday as his return to the big league lineup. “That’s what we hope,” Cashman said. If the Yankees determine Rodriguez is not ready by Monday, his rehab assignment will have to end and he’ll go back to Tampa for further workouts.

Derek Jeter
No evaluation yet on whether Jeter will be available this weekend. “Just getting treatment,” Cashman said. The Yankees will decided on Friday whether Jeter should play, stay active but on the bench, or go to the disabled list. All three are options at this point, Cashman said.

Curtis Granderson
Taking batting practice in the cage in Tampa. As you probably expect, there’s no set time for when he might begin a rehab assignment or progress beyond indoor BP.

Francisco Cervelli
It was 13 days ago that the Yankees announced Cervelli would be shut down for two weeks because of a stress reaction in his right elbow. Cashman said there’s no update on his status.

David Phelps and Jayson Nix
Went to Tampa to begin rehabbing forearm and hamstring strains. Cashman said he wasn’t sure yet whether either one would be a candidate to join the Yankees this weekend.

Ronnier Mustelier
On the Triple-A disabled list for the past month, Mustelier has played in five Gulf Coast League rehab games in the past seven days. He’s played left field, right field and third base. No immediate word on when he’ll be activated in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but obviously he’s getting close.

Mark Montgomery 
Also on the Triple-A disabled list with shoulder injury, an MRI came back clean and Montgomery has made two rehab appearances in the Gulf Coast League. Like with Mustelier, Cashman didn’t say when Montgomery will be activated with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but he did say that the Yankees believe he’s healthy despite this season’s underwhelming number.

Vidal Nuno and Brennan Boesch
Both had PRP injections, Nuno in his injured groin and Boesch in his shoulder. “They’re not doing anything right now,” Cashman said. Cashman indicated that Boesch seems closer to baseball activity than Nuno, but obviously neither one is really on the big league radar at the moment.

Corban Joseph
The other 40-man guy on the Triple-A disabled list, Joseph is out for the year after having shoulder surgery.

    @BobKlap

    Just spoke to Brian Cashman, who said, “we hope that’s the case…that’s the plan” when told A-Rod announced his return for Monday. #Yankees

    I just can’t believe the number and scope of injuries this year.

    It boggles the mind. Or at least it boggles my mind.

    What a frickin’ shame.

    :(

  3. MTU July 17th, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    Thanks for the much needed update Chad.

  4. blake July 17th, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    no STFU this time for Alex from Cash? He’s mellowing

  5. blake July 17th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    Ben Badler ?@BenBadler 10m
    Big week for scouts with the Cuban national team in the USA. Jose Fernandez, 25-year-old star SS/2B, is on the roster.

  6. Howler July 17th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    At least we know what’s going on with Nuno…but the image of the treatment still has me shuddering

  7. MTU July 17th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    I think the Yankees need to take a long, hard look at their training and conditioning staff.

  8. 86w183 July 17th, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    I cannot for the life of me understand how Granderson can be out this long with a broken pinkie on his left hand. It’s a friggin’ pinkie!

    The pin came out 26 days ago and its how non-dominant hand.

  9. UnKnown July 17th, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    ——–

    :lol: No kidding. I am glad that AL keeps doing what he wants to do and give updates. Screw Cash!

    And he is coming back. So to all the haters “In Your Face”!!!!

  10. dayglo July 17th, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    Why not have ARod stay down for an extra few days? Jeter needs to DH anyway when he comes back.

    Prediction (based on the Yankees luck this year):
    * ARod comes up and re-injures himself, maybe even a different bodypart
    * He rehabs all winter and spring training and is ready for next Sept
    * But he can’t play anyway since he’s suspended for the first 100 Games of the season

  11. Chambliss July 17th, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    I would like to see A-Rod play in Boston this weekend. I don’t see the point in rehabbing him in AA or AAA. It is not as if they have some stud backing him up at 3rd. He has had some very big hits at Fenway over the years. I see no reason to baby him at this point.

  12. Howler July 17th, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    little bones are harder to heal especially in a stress related area, nothing really to fuse to and makes them easier to crack and re-break. The bone just isn’t as strong.

  13. 86w183 July 17th, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    Obviously Cash and Alex talked, thus the “that’s the plan” comment.

    Gotta run…. see the early risers in the morning

    have a day all

  14. Niblick July 17th, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    Maybe he’s just a wienie butt.

  15. MTU July 17th, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    86-

    Their are too many injuries. This should be looked into.

    I’m not talking about the accidental ones like getting hit, or that type of thing.

    I’m talking about all the injured muscles, etc. Too many pulls.

    Look at how frickin’ long it took Nunez to come back.

    He’s a young guy. Maybe he needs to be taught something about stretching and flexibility ?

    Nuno with a double groin pull ?

    A young guy like Boesch w shoulder soreness.

    Something wrong with his picture Amigo.

    ;)

  16. 86w183 July 17th, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    The pin should not come out until the bone is healed. That happened on June 21.

    strange… seeya

    Can we afford per diem for a scout…?

  19. Howler July 17th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    Too much emphasis on weight training, not enough on flexibility…I’m not a big fan of Ichiro, but he sure doesn’t get hurt a lot.

  20. MTU July 17th, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    I am a big fan of places like API which target training to specific sports and needs within a sport.

    I wish the Yankees could insist that their players go there every Winter w the Yankees picking up the tab.

    Unfortunately they can’t. They can only suggest it.

  21. NYYROC July 17th, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    Can’t remember where I read the article, but early this year I read a story about Ichiro. He has some kind of state of the art exercise machines that he uses to help with his flexibilty. Has them in his home(s) and I think he wanted to put them in training room at YS. Was pretty interesting read for anyone who has ever worked out on machines at gym.

    ******************************
    86,

    Have you ever had you hand immobilized for 4 or more weeks? It’s amazing how much work you need to do to get back mobility in your joints.

  23. blake July 17th, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    is Jose Fernandez gonna defect?

  24. Frankg July 17th, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    How many players get hit by a pitch in the arms or hands and are put on the DL twice in same season? Granderson has a big problem in getting out of the way. Just another one of his many limitations—his only saving grace is his ability to hit HR’s. Let’s see if he can make thru the rest of the season w/o similar injuries.

  25. MTU July 17th, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    Blake-

    What’s the difference ?

    He’s gonna be too expensive anyway ?

    There was a super ss prospect from the DR named Miguel Sano.

    I believe the A’s got him. We didn’t even bid.

    Feel really bad for Michael Weiner

  28. Hankflorida July 17th, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    If Musty can DH or play 3rd and the outfield, the Yankees should get him up here by Friday. They took Cruz out of Disneyland and put him in the lineup. The clock is ticking towards the trading deadline, and the Yankees have to be close to the 2nd Wild Card in order to pull off some deals that gets them in contention. It is a shame that with this offense, some of the fans have given up on winning the division. For them as they deal with reality, it is not I can be a champion, but it is, “I Coulda Been a Contender.” Who can blame them?

  29. Frankg July 17th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    The Yankees are really tight lipped about players injury status, and they get very upset if a player says something before they do. This strict policy makes them look in control of the team and like they know what the heck is going on, when in actuality they are basically clueless about keeping their players healthy and getting them successfully rehabbed once they get hurt.

  30. Howler July 17th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    The Legacy of Gen Von Steingrabber lives on Frankg….it’s just Hank does a really poor impersonation of him and Lt. Cashman can’t get his messages correct.

  31. tomingeorgia July 17th, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    Just watched “A League of their Own” again. Terrific movie.

    Waiting for a signing or trade…..

  34. ManningRules July 17th, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    no no no. I’m not gonna sit here with nothing to read for another two weeks!

  35. kd July 17th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    really wish the yankees had signed the cuban outfielders. maybe this inflelder will take away some of the sting.

  36. blake July 17th, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    THis has to be the worst sports day of the year……there is nothing on

    MLS and WNBA baby!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. Hankflorida July 17th, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    If this is a slow day, how about some discussions on how many of you out there would prefer that the Yankees not make any deals till after the baseball season as there may be better pickings to be had including free agency? History tells us that Babe Ruth, Roger Maris and Reggie Jackson were winter acquisitions, and as I said before, the only mid season trade that brought the Yankees long term benefits was Red Ruffing. On the other hand, if the Yankees are only a few games out of the 2nd Wild Card after Boston, Texas and Tampa, go for some kind of David Justice deal?

  39. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 17th, 2013 at 5:40 pm

    I have some free association for you!

    I cried a lot last night – actually sobbed when Mo was on the mound – and cried again today reading the different articles. Most of you know that I cry easily so this isn’t a great surprise I’m sure. But it isn’t getting any easier as the season goes on, and Mo is honored in the cities where he’s pitching for the last time.

    So I decided to clean out the garage today, one of the hottest days of the year. Really stupid. While I was sweeping, I started to think that maybe it would be better for me not to watch any more of the season because then I wouldn’t feel the pain of his departure. But that got me to thinking about possibly regretting it, and that got me to thinking about regrets.

    So I thought about regrets that I have, because it’s never really a good thing to have regrets. So I have three that I can think of.

    1. Allowing my then fiance to talk me out of moving to NYC after college. He told me long-distance relationships never work out. (I ended up breaking the engagement eventually anyway, so the distance didn’t matter much.

    2. Never seeing Simon and Garfunkel in concert.

    3. Never seeing CSNY is concert.

    That’s all I can think of. I don’t ever want #4 to be “hiding from Mo’s last season with the Yanks.”

    My biggest non-regret is breaking all my engagements. I’m thinking the guys involved probably now thank their luck stars that I did. :D

    So after I decided that I was going to stick it out with Mo, I started singing the song

  40. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 17th, 2013 at 5:47 pm

    So after I decided that I was going to stick it out with Mo, I started singing the song Peaceful Easy Feeling by the Eagles. But there’s a line in there that makes no sense IMO

    But she can’t take you anyway
    You don’t already know how to go

    I have ended up many places I didn’t know how to go prior to going, in many different ways.

    Anyone else have regrets they want to list?

  41. ManningRules July 17th, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    Well, long distance relationships do rarely ever work.

  42. Howler July 17th, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    No way would you not want to see the end of Mo’s career…even if they don’t make the playoffs…can you imagine what that last trip to the mound will be like in the stadium. It’ll make last night seem minor in comparison. I would hope Yankee fans will bring down the house. It’d be impossible for me not to be a witness to that.
    I have a few regrets…kind of hard not to, but I don’t let them get to me too much.
    At least none of your past fiancee’s wanted to get married in matching #13 Yankee jersey.

  43. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 17th, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    Also, I don’t believe that Mariano would have gotten what he got had someone started the 8th and then he had to be called in.

    What was most gripping and dramatic to me was seeing him out there on the field, with only his catcher there, and every other player and person in that stadium cheering for him. His teammates certainly weren’t going to leave the field and go back to the dugout if there were runners on base! And if the NL somehow took a lead into the 9th and the AL didn’t score, there would have been no 9th for MO.

    Mariano is so devoid of ego that his statement, straight from the heart, said it all.

    “For sure, he wanted to make sure that he pitched me. That’s the reason that I pitched the eighth inning, and not the ninth inning. You don’t know what can happen in the game of baseball. Anything can happen, and it happens quick… We won. That was the most important thing.”

    Vintage Mariano.

  44. RhapsodyInBlue July 17th, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    I’m Irish, I’ll probably get hammered the last night I see Mo come into a game.

  45. RhapsodyInBlue July 17th, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    We were all crying Trisha.

  46. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 17th, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    “At least none of your past fiancee’s wanted to get married in matching #13 Yankee jersey.”

    Yikes. Maybe another number would have done it for me! :)

    Here’s another regret: that I was born a crier. Major source of constant embarassment. Can’t give it back. I’m an emotional crier, as in, if something touches me, I cry. Trouble is, almost everything touches me!

  47. Howler July 17th, 2013 at 5:58 pm

    #1 regret…taking a temp job until my tv studio job started 3 weeks later after college. I wouldn’t have gotten crushed by falling shelving, missing 2 years of work. I’d be working in TV now, and I’d probably as well as being that small stations video editor would’ve gotten the sports anchor position I was going to audition for when they were starting their news team. A small station will try to save money wherever it can, if it can have one person doing two jobs they’d be thrilled.

  48. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 17th, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    “We were all crying Trisha.”

    I love you for saying that Rhapsody. I feel like a freak so much of the time with my crying.

    Thank you!

    (And to show you how problematic it is, I cried reading that you cried. I kid you not.)

  49. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 17th, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    “Well, long distance relationships do rarely ever work.”

    Probably true. And he had lived and worked in the City so he felt that City would eat me up because it wouldn’t be friendly enough for me.

  50. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 17th, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    “#1 regret…taking a temp job until my tv studio job started 3 weeks later after college. I wouldn’t have gotten crushed by falling shelving, missing 2 years of work.

    Wow Howler, that’s terrible.

    :(

  51. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 17th, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    I guess I don’t have anything real good to add to the conversation, just wanted to hook up with you guys.

    It’s going to be one heck of a second-half ride! I like excitement and adventure and not really knowing where things are going to end up, but keeping the faith that it will end up good. So I guess this is an ideal situation for someone like me!

    I was thinking last night that I don’t remember the last time the Yanks had so few representatives at the ASG.

  52. Howler July 17th, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    Ah well, moral of the story is party with your friends after college until your job starts :)

  53. Howler July 17th, 2013 at 6:21 pm

    Kuroda should’ve been on the team.
