Update: Robertson unavailable due to sore ribcage, tests tomorrow

Ibanez leaves game after getting hit by pitch in elbow
Yanks beat O's but four leave game with injuries

11:42pm: Robertson will in fact go for tests tomorrow. Good, let’s see exactly what’s going on and deal with it.

11:12pm: Following tonight’s game, Joe Girardi confirmed that David Robertson was unavailable due to a sore ribcage and said he may be sent for tests tomorrow. Robertson first felt it after Friday’s game and it’s lingered, so there is some concern. Hopefully it’s not an oblique issue (though that seems inevitable), that could take some time to heal. What a terrible night on the injury front.

    well that answers my question.

      Four tonight? By my count, another 21.

  • Kevin

    Seriously,how many more injuries can we get?!

  • Rey22

    Wow, 4 players down in one night. That’s crazy.

    I think Soriano should close. He’s done it before and done it well, it would give him a tremendous emotional lift. When Robertson gets healthy again I’d slot him right back to the 8th where he was the best in baseball last year. Logan and Wade have been fine in the seventh. If Robertson’s down Wade goes to the 8th and Soriano the 9th. Joe’s getting thin with all the injuries but the Yanks are playing better.

      Totally agree.

      Having Robertson in the 8th and Soriano close you are only changing one person’s role.

      With Rivera coming back for 2013 (prob his final year) and Soriano’s contract ending after 2013, you can have Robertson take over in 2014.

    What the hell!!

    Nova, Rapada, Ibaneez and now Robertson!

    Who goes tomorrow? (Well of coures I hope no one, but Martin if anybody, he’s TERRIBLE right now)

      I don’t care about Martin’s bat (his ABs have been getting better anyway).

      We lose him from behind the plate, we’re toast.

        Yeah, nobody seems to consider that he’s the only reasonably balanced catcher we have in the organization right now with Romine down.

    Nobody is safe. Wrap every Yankee in several layers of bubble wrap to avoid more injuries

    Call up Mitchell, call up Warren, call up Manny, call up Campos, call up whomever they’re drafting next month!!!!!
