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

O'Brien dominates in season debut
Yanks come back for extra innings win over O's

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.

      You put it a lot tamer than I did, but that’s exactly what I was thinking when I saw this last night.

    he is a real piece of work. another randy levine stupid signing.

    panic move central by randy levine, who knows less about baseball then the avg. poster on this site.

    arod, tex, and swisher are in post season form already. arod and texiera are especially dreadful……

      Arod really fucked us in 09 didn’t he?

        Don’t feed the trolls.

    • FIPster Doofus

      A-Rod’s a real nuisance with his .884 career playoff OPS.

    • MannyGeee

      Obvious troll is obvious

    • Robinson Tilapia

      I believe Soriano’s physical revealed no fingernail damage at the time.

  • Havok9120

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

  • Kvothe

    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?

    • Havok9120

      All depends on Soriano. If he’s a scratch, I can see Phelps heading down. Logan, Rapada….yikes. Its Mitchell who’s on the 40 man right? When’d he last pitch?

      • Paul VuvuZuvella

        or Betances

      • Kvothe

        Mitchell on the 8th, so probably not. Betances pitched on the 6th and could be an option.

    • flamingo

      Is that username from the book I think it’s from?

      • whozat

        Hope so; they’re great books

  • MannyGeee

    Ha, a torn nail…

    Try as you might Suzyn, YCPBB….
