Rafael Soriano tore nail warming up, may or may not have been available


Via Mark Feinsand and Bryan Hoch, Rafael Soriano tore a fingernail while warming up in the seventh inning of tonight’s game, and depending on who you ask, he either was or was not available to pitch in the later innings. If the nail is torn bad enough, it could require a DL stint. Hopefully that’s not that case for Soriano, because the Yankees could use a fresh arm for tomorrow.

    While I completely understand how it can fuck with a pitcher, these types of injuries make baseball players look bad as a whole. Hah.

    But….wait….I thought Girardi was just a moron for not using Soriano. I smell a cover up….

    Hmmm, is someone going to get sent down for a fresh reliever? Or will one of the SP’s be available out of the bullpen instead of throwing their between starts bullpen session?

    Or…. Nick Swisher, Relief Pitcher, the sequel?
