Injuries are no fun. The Yanks announced news on two of them yesterday. Brett Gardner had surgery on his wrist to fix tendinitis. If that sounds odd, well, it is. Mike and I dive into that one. Then there’s Al Aceves, but this time it’s not about his back. He broke his collar bone, which means he’ll get a late start on the season. But we talk about his back injury anyway, because, well, I feel for people who have back problems and think that we shouldn’t undersell how detrimental they can be to long-term health.
And then there’s Sergio Mitre. The Yankees didn’t tender him a contact. No, they did him one better by signing him to a major league deal worth $900K. I understand why people don’t like Mitre. He’s not very good. But as Mike and I explain, the Yanks weren’t going to do much better with the 12th man in the bullpen.
