Update: MRI negative on Logan’s back

By

Update (2:11pm): Via Bryan Hoch and Carig, Brian Cashman said the MRI came back negative. It’s just back spasms and not a DL situation. Logan will be on the roster come Opening Day.

11:43am: Via Marc Carig, Logan is now headed for an MRI on his back. That can’t be good.

10:00am: Via Mark Feinsand, Boone Logan showed up to the ballpark with an achy back today and has been sent to the doctor. There’s no word on the extent the injury yet, but we’ll find out soon enough. Clay Rapada was a virtual lock for the roster anyway, but now there’s a chance he’ll end up the primary left-hander by default. Hopefully it’s nothing serious and the Yankees won’t have to dig up another reliever to start the season.

    Even from the grave, Stairs still haunts.

    There is no such thing as LOOGY depth?

    • Robinson Tilapia says:

      Everything we seem to read, though, indicates that Boone is being counted on for more than LOOGY work. This would indicate someone like Kontos getting the call if this turns out to be anything.

      Things always have a habit of working themselves out? Anyone still up for trading from the pitching depth? :)

      • Robinson Tilapia says:

        That was supposed to be a period after “out,” of course.

      • Ted Nelson says:

        I don’t think a few injuries change the outlook on whether or not you trade a pitcher much. Either way you’re looking at the value presented in the trade.

      • Fin says:

        Other than those crackpot posters that wanted to trade away all the AAA pitching because the were being treated unfairly, there was virtually no one calling for an immediate trade. It was mainly people speculating on what happens in a perfect scenario where everyone was healthy. All the I told you so’s and gloating as if some people had the very rare foresight to know that pitchers get hurt seems misplaced.
        If the Yankees had traded Garcia, I still dont see how they would be much, if any worse off now. Phelps is fine candidate for the 5th starter and if Mitre could hold down the fort as the long man, just about any one can. None, of these injuries are even serious, they are DL stints at worst.

    Seems Phelps made the cut over Mitchell too

    are the yankees using more MRIs, if so that is good. the medical cost is rather slim compared to value in preventing problems yet unseen
