Granderson scratched with right oblique strain


Via Bryan Hoch, Curtis Granderson will sit out today with a right oblique strain. They’re already calling it a strain, which is never a good sign. We will hear more information after the game, but at this point I think it’s safe to assume a DL trip.

    1) fucking a.
    2) well maybe now we can start Nova and Colon and still keep Garcia and Mitre? Although I guess we’ll still need a 4th outfielder.
    3) fucking a.

  2. Tom Zig says:

    What the hell. How the hell do you people keep straining obliques?

  3. Gerald Williams says:

    damn, terrible. Why are starters doing anything where they can get injured at this point in spring training.

  4. Gerald Williams says:

    And now two of my fantasy teams are all screwed up!!!!!!!!! GRRRRRRRRR!

  5. Isaac says:

    Didn’t this kind of thing happen a few years ago? I thought the Yankees already fired the bad conditioning coach.

  6. Monteroisdinero says:

    C’mon-if Joba can bounce back so quickly-let’s be optimistic.

  7. UWS says:

    Are strained obliques this year’s strained hammies? WTF?

  8. A.D. says:

    Can we get an oblique watch?

  9. Carl says:

    If if is a DL trip, then so much for the full lineup in time for Opening Day.

  10. Fair Weather Freddy says:

    Just great! With Opening Day and Justin Verlander looming in less than 10 days, we lose one our best lefty threats. So who fills in? Does this mean Justin Maxwell makes the team now?

  11. Monteroisdinero says:

    What would folks like to call it to make them feel better? An oblique tweek?

  12. Urban says:

    Did the Yankees hire the Mets 2009 physical trainers?

  13. mike_h says:

    well if he lands on the DL Jones moves to LF and Gardner to CF and replacements are:

    Colin Curtis
    Greg Golson
    Justin Maxwell

    This can put a hamper on the big year I was expecting.

    At least its gonna be Andruw Jones starting, could be a hell of a lot worse.

  15. Pasqua says:

    I think a deep breath is in order here. With nine days until Opening Day, a DL trip could mean only about a week on the shelf for Granderson. Yes, this assumes a quick recovery time, but this is certainly not going be worse than his injury last year.

    Soooo anyone think Mark Prior will make the team?
