Brendan Ryan scratched from Yankees lineup

RyanWelp, there might be another roster spot up for grabs.

The Yankees just scratched Brendan Ryan from today’s lineup. Dean Anna will instead get the start at shortstop.

Ryan has continually downplayed the severity of his sore lower back, and today was supposed to be his first game since March 4. All spring, it has been a given that Ryan would break camp as basically the Yankees defensive specialist and backup shortstop. If this back injury becomes a problem, Anna could presumably jump into the mix.

UPDATE, 6:37 p.m.: Upper back spasms for Ryan. The Yankees say it’s unrelated to the oblique/lower back injury that had him sidelined previously.

    Its always good when your zero bat all glove defensive replacement player has a bad back. I really can’t believe they gave him 2 years + a player option? I think if a guy like Anna or Solarte or a trade happens and they make the team at the start of the season while Ryan goes on the DL that would not be the worst.

    Ryan isnt a guy that really needs to play a lot since his value is all tied into being a defensive replacement. They just need him as SS insurance next year if they end up having a guy like Nunez at short.

    i agree with JF. thats what i meant when i said that’s not the right way to assess a team, what they did last year doesnt count any more.

    I wouldnt be totally shocked if this team tanked and lost 83 games, but i’d be less surprised than that if this team showed up in the WS.

    It’s gonna be a fun year (I hope!)

    Brendan has been scratched more than a guy with fleas.

    i dont expect ichiro to get more than about 100 ABs this year. So I’d rather that roster spot be held by him than almonte just because i dont think there will be enough at bats for almonte at the ML level.

    That would be fantastic if Itchy got 100 or less at bats. I can only hope if there is an OF injury Almonte gets a call up.

    Ryan does do a great DeNiro impersonation though.

  6. Hans Davenport March 20th, 2014 at 6:51 pm

    I suspected some back thing would come up with Ryan. Read somewhere yesterday about a lumbar issue.

    “However, Ryan is concerned that it may be his lumbar that is acting up and if so we may be in for some familiar updates on our phone. Those updates being of the flashing “Disabled List!” nature that so plagued the Yankees last year.”

    This was from SI.com March 17.

  9. Jerkface March 20th, 2014 at 6:57 pm

    A rare agreement with JF.

    If you rarely agree with me it means you have lots of bad baseball opinions :x

  10. Ys Guy March 20th, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    i agree with stuckey. there have been many seasons in my life as a yankees fan where they had no chance of winning the WS for the git go. That didnt stop me from rooting for them, and enjoying them.

    Of course I’d rather they win the WS, but if not winning the WS makes it no fun to root for my team or anyone else’s, then why would you root for them since the best team in history at winning WS has only done so on average once every 4 years? (and far less in our colleective lifetimes) You’re inviting alot of mysery into your life if you can only enjoy winning the WS.

    Now what keeps Jets fans going i cant’ explain….

    I am not too worried about Ellsbury, but as his game involves speed, they have to make sure he is not in there until he is 100%. Fortunately Ellsbury is pretty smart about that. This is not a typical injury for him. I do think he looks a bit puffy compared to when he was with the Red Sox. I wonder if the post season and his broken foot set back his offseason conditioning.

    As for Ryan, not really worried since I don’t want to see him in too many games anyways. In fact, if he is on the DL to start the season I would not mind the fact the Yankees could add someone more useful to the 25 man.

  12. Hans Davenport March 20th, 2014 at 7:00 pm

    This years team isn’t playing in last years MLB, and the 2013 Yankee team was lucky to win 85 games. The baseline for that team was likely lower than that and they lost their best player so there was a lot of work to get above the 85 win threshold. The loss of mariano can not be overstated as well, since having one of the best in the history of the game at a position which literally decides close games is one of the possible reasons they overplayed their runs allowed/runs scored.

    Baseball Reference had last years team at 79-83 Pythagorean.

  13. BoJo March 20th, 2014 at 7:02 pm

    To me, it is not about winning a WS or not. it is about the season long journey and about enjoying the ride…great moments and memories each season. Like seeing Bobby Murcer hit a ball that stayed on top of the wall while he raced around bases for a triple in 1966, or him running around the monuments in CF trying to retrieve a Tony Horton blast…or Scott Broscius and Tino hitting homers in consecutive nights against Arizona in WS. The first two moments were when the club was terrible, but I remember them as fondly as when they were in WS.

  14. Ys Guy March 20th, 2014 at 7:03 pm

    funny you should mention the kc royals who havent made the playoffs since 1985.

    i believe they will break that string this season!

    If you place a dart first, other players can snipe you by trying to override your dart with theirs. If another player places a dart and you place yours later (for example, when you think theirs will expire soon) you start getting XP as soon as the original dart fades.

    Flowers may develop in clusters, double or single stems. Many varieties of flowering plum trees produce light pink or white blooms. For example, Bliriana (P. bliriana), often called double pink plum or purple leaf plum, has bronze like foliage and pink or rose colored flowers that bloom in spring or late winter in USDA zones 6 to 8. These flowering plum trees grow about 25 feet tall in full sun to partial shade. Cluster flowered trees such as wild plum and goose plum (P. americana) have white blooms that produce tiny about an inch wide fruits used to make jelly and preserves. Myrobalan plum trees (P. cerasifera) thrive in USDA zones 5 to 8, growing up to 30 feet tall and producing snow white flowers and tiny red fruits. Foliage on plum trees may be dark green, purple, purple black, crimson, maroon red or a combination of colors, depending on the season.

    Emma Childs and Harriet deWitt (2008) pointed out in the journal article, “Enhanced mood and psychomotor performance by a caffeine containing energy capsule in fatigued individuals,” that approximately 80 percent of adults and children in the United States consume caffeine products in spite of caffeine being a psychoactive substance because of its effect on a person’s mood or behavior. One popular beverage that contains caffeine is coffee. In fact, Juliet Gray (1998) in her journal article, “Caffeine, Coffee Health,” stated that caffeine is the major pharmacologically active ingredient in coffee. However, coffee is constantly evolving, for no longer is coffee just caffeinated or decaffeinated, but it comes in a variety of flavors. To some, coffee is just a wake me up beverage, while to others coffee is a status symbol. For example, the stimulant in coffee can temporally increase the energy of a drowsy person. However, many products have caffeine as an ingredient. For example, some teas, soft drinks, chocolate candy and medicine have caffeine. (2000) in their research study “Coffee Consumption and the Risk of Coronary Heart Disease and Death” used coffee to test the effect of caffeine on cholesterol levels. They concluded in their study that caffeine does not increase coronary heart disease, which is caused by high cholesterol. Concurring with these findings, Sarah R. Taylor and Barbara Demmig Adam (2007) in their study, “To sip or not to sip: the potential health risks and benefits of coffee drinking,” indicated that even though coffee drinking may not be appropriate for everybody, people’s cholesterol levels are not affected if they drink coffee regularly and in moderation. Likewise, Carrie H. S. Ruxton (2009), in her study, “The health effects of black tea and flavonoids,” suggested that caffeine, specifically black tea, is clearly associated with the prevention of heart disease. When consumed in moderation, caffeine appears not have a harmful effect on cholesterol levels.
