Mitre to the DL, Logan recalled, Aceves throws


Via Ben Shpigel, Sergio Mitre has been placed on the disabled list with an oblique injury apparently suffered during batting practice. Boone Logan has been recalled from Triple-A Scranton to take his spot. Mitre hasn’t pitched in 11 days, and he was probably just getting some hacks in before the Yanks head out for the road leg of their interleague schedule next week. The Phillies have a lefty heavy lineup, so chances are Logan will get some action during this series. Sigh.

In better injury news, Alfredo Aceves, battling back injuries, threw 30 pitches this afternoon. Marc Carig says the Yanks’ look took the pitches from “flat ground at about 70 percent intensity, and Aceves said he “feels normal.” There is still no timetable for Aceves’ return.

    say it ain’t so

  2. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Mitre’s arm went into atrophy.

    What the $$***$

    I dread the fact that the Phils are coming in ice cold, never ever a good thing. All they need is one Boone Logan inning to dust themselves up.

    Is it too much to ask for a couple of CGs this series. CC just needs to get color blind and think the Phils are wearing Oriole orange. Lets go …

  4. Steve H says:

    I fear for dr mrs the yankee’s sanity after this news (the Logan part).

  5. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    Boone doesn’t come back until Season 6. The Yankees are screwing up the story.

  6. UWS says:


    /sobs uncontrollably

  7. ShuutoHeat (Igawa > Logan) says:

    We’re going to win…but Logan seriously?

  8. Centuar of Attention says:

    I can see it already sometime this week: “Logan deals to Utley. The pitch, swung on and hidden deep to right field, it is high, it is far, it is gone!” That or him walking both Utley and Howard. Cue vomit.

  9. john doe says:

    Holy crap- Logan’s numbers against lefties are pitiful. What does Albaladejo have to do to get a callup? He is still better than Clippard.

  10. Steve H says:

    In my best Nancy Kerrigan voice:


  11. Andy in Sunny Daytona says:

    He has only walked 2 in 13 innings since being demoted, maybe he’s straightened himse……….AWWWW, who am I kidding?

  12. theyankeewarrior says:

    The Yankees basically just told Albie that he needs to get every better he faces in AAA out or else he will never be recalled.

    Boone Logan is the definition of “I’m left handed, so I am not yet looking for another career”.

  13. Mark says:

    Come on, would rather see Alby, hopefully after the Phillies series Boone is gone, but that won’t be true.

  14. cecala says:

    Whats the point of even calling him up, he comes in, walks all the lefties and then Girardi takes him out to replace him with someone else. We are better off letting Mitre pitch with his injury…

    /kidding but not really

  15. ADam says:

    At least Park and Robertson are throwing the ball better, there recent numbers (D-ROB 2ER, 11K in last 11.2 IP) (Park 1ER, 11K in last 7 IP) take bit of the sting away from Boone Logan being back up

    • Dirty Pena says:

      For me, the only real sting in Boone coming up is that there’s guys I’d rather see (Melancon, Albaladejo) and it seems obvious that he sucks so what does Girardi/whoever see in him? I don’t think it’s going to affect the team all that much.

  16. Welcome back, Boone! I, for one, am glad to have you back.

  17. chriskeo says:

    So is this move retroactive and he could come back in 5 days? Or does it not matter and it will be weeks…

  18. MikeD says:

    Injured taking BP? Can we stop the nonsense of pitchers batting, running bases, etc.? It is not 1870.
