Robertson: “I think I’ll be ready to roll in 15 days”

David Robertson

Dave Robertson felt some soreness in his left groin last night. He felt like he could pitch through it and thought it might be the kind of thing that goes away after a night of sleep. But Robertson woke up this morning and knew he couldn’t pitch tonight.

“It wasn’t like a pull or a pop (last night),” he said. “I just felt soreness coming home (with a pitch) and it just got gradually worse. Thankfully I was able to get that last out and get out of there.”

Robertson told the Yankees about it this morning and was sent for an MRI, which revealed the Grade 1 strain of his left groin. He’ll go on the disabled list tomorrow, and Robertson feels confident he’ll be back in 15 days. Doesn’t actually expect it to take that long before he’s able to start throwing again.

“I think it’s going to be a 15-day thing,” he said. “I think I’ll be ready to roll in 15 days, possibly sooner, but the thing is you can’t short-change the pen. You can’t run a six-man (bullpen) this early in the year. That’s too much stress on too many arms just waiting on what might be or may be.”

The Yankees will make a move for someone tomorrow. Preston Claiborne, Cesar Cabral and Shane Greene are all on the 40-man roster. Guys like Matt Daley, Danny Burawa, Fred Lewis and Mark Montgomery are not. For now, Girardi said that Shawn Kelley will likely get the bulk of the ninth inning opportunities, and Adam Warren has pitched well enough that I have to imagine he’ll get the first shot as the new setup man.

“(Robertson) started off great, and he’s our best pitcher,” Kelley said. “It forces all of us to throw another inning later, so obviously that’s not good for the whole pen, but injuries are part of it and we’ve got to overcome it. You saw today what we’re capable of, and hopefully we can string it together until he gets back.”

TeixeiraA Grade 1 strain for Mark Teixeira was actually pretty good news. The Yankees have known for three days that Teixeira was hurt, but they were in no real rush to get an MRI. The test basically revealed a very mild strain, and Teixeira will actually start an exercise program tomorrow.

“I knew it wasn’t anything major,” Teixeira said. “When i first did it, if I’m on crutches, then I know something’s wrong. I could walk. I could put some pressure on it. I just knew that there was something not right and that’s what the MRI showed. … I was hoping it was only going to be a seven days, two weeks type thing. Again, we didn’t want to go on the DL, but we can’t play short and push it this early. Hopefully the two weeks will be plenty of time.”

    No Yankee minor league games survived the rain. Bummer.

  3. yankeefeminista April 7th, 2014 at 7:10 pm

    A few in brief scouting reports I had read questioned Sulbaran’s secondary pitches; however, this article appears more favorable…

    “The Twins became interested in Sulbaran, a third-year pro, from watching him post a 3.01 ERA in 23 games, 16 of them starts, for Great Lakes. That ERA was 1.97 from June 1 on, so the Twins were thrilled when the Dodgers agreed to include him in the deal.

    ‘He’s got three pitches, and he’s more polished than most 19-year-olds,” Radcliff said of Sulbaran, who simply switched Midwest League teams after the trade, and put up a 2.70 ERA in 20 innings for Cedar Rapids. “At that level, pitchability means he can get all three pitches over. He looks like he can use his breaking balls in counts where other guys can’t.’

    Sulbaran is barely 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, so the Twins are hopeful his velocity increases from its 91-92 mph ceiling as he gets older.” (Baseball America)

    Sulbaran was at Cedar Rapids (A), so I wonder if he goes to Charleston over Tampa…
    Austinmac, that means Henry Owens vs. Bryan Mitchell, scheduled for tomorrow night may get pushed back until Wed. I was looking forward to that matchup. And it didn’t even conflict with the Yankee game…

    I love Mitchell’s stuff. If he can command it, he could be very fun. Finally, I have, I hope, gotten squared away on milb and naturally we get rain.

    Cashman gets credit from me for the trade today. He seems to have gotten a pitcher who has some ability. Good risk. I much prefer that to a trade for 28 yr. old AAAA type.

    On a side note, although he is a Red Sox, happy to see Grady Sizemore back healthy and in the league. This guy was so exciting and one of my fav players back in the day.

    good evening all.

    Havent looked through other threads but this one seems much calmer and more pleasant than the night time in-game threads over the past few days! :)

  7. yankeefeminista April 7th, 2014 at 7:34 pm

    austin, they’re just teasing you! (MiLB) However, you can always watch the milb-tv archives. I just rewatched Gary Sanchez’s grand slam. And I must say in the AB’s I have seen this year, Mason has had very very good AB’s, nothing like the atypically aggressive swinger I saw last year when he had just come up to AA ball. As for Sulbaran, I don’t know enough about him to say, but it is always nice to add to the lefty pitching corp. And I wish Nunie well.

  8. yankeefeminista April 7th, 2014 at 7:37 pm

    Hey, chicken. Where are you on this rainy rainy night?

  9. chicken_stanley April 7th, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    Hi YF. Hope youre doing well. I’m in Murfreesboro, TN just outside Nashville. No rain here, so far

  10. yankeefeminista April 7th, 2014 at 7:44 pm

    Oh, and austin, I love Mitchell’s stuff as well. His pitching at the end of last season was something to behold. I went to his OD game last Thursday, and he started out really good and then just got out of whack. You can watch that game on the archives, but I would advise watching some of those end of season/playoff games from last season when Mitchell was really in a groove. For example, watch his 8/29 game vs. the Rock Cats. He was really good. He pitched 7.1 IP, allowed 4 hits, 1 run and had 0 BB and 10 K’s.

  11. chicken_stanley April 7th, 2014 at 7:49 pm

    YF/mac – I’m sort of interested in MiLB tv… didn’t even know such a thing was available. Is it generally reliable? Is there a blackout policy? (sounds silly but typically hotel wifi is a dynamic IP address… I’ve been blacked out of many MLB games that I shouldn’t have been)

  12. yankeefeminista April 7th, 2014 at 7:50 pm

    chicken, good to hear. The whole east coast is soggy, but at least baseball is back in the Bronx, baby! And the rain should clear in time for Nova’s first pitch tomorrow…

  13. yankeefeminista April 7th, 2014 at 7:55 pm

    chicken, no black out policy that I know of; you can watch pretty much everyone except Tampa and you get some Charleston’s away games, but MiLB isn’t a sophisticated as MLB; these are live streams, so some visuals aren’t very good, depending on which team’s cameras it is. Also MiLB doesn’t work well with slow internet. Luis for example has MILB-TV but can’t really pull it in with Venezuela’s slow internet. Also live games are better than the archives, which sometimes will suddenly freeze or stop working. Still, it is work the price/frustrations if you want to watch MiLB ball. And it has come a long way since the dogdays of solely having one non-moving camera and only SWB games streamed.

    Phenoxyethanol, or ethylene glycol monophenyl ether, is often used in cosmetics to kill bacteria and keep the formula stabilized. It is possible to derive this product from natural sources but is too often not the choice when very cheap synthetic equivalents are available. Phenoxyethanol is toxic to the kidneys and bladder. It may cause problems with the reproductive system and serious damage to the eyes. In several animal studies its toxicity was apparent when, used in moderate doses, caused degeneration to the brain and nervous system as well as testicular atrophy and reproductive damage. Japan and the EU have restricted its uses in cosmetics.
