Robertson will need longer than 15 days on DL

Game 42: Time for Change

Via Dan Barbarisi, right-hander David Robertson will spend more than 15 days on the DL according to Joe Girardi. A left oblique strain put Robertson on the shelf a week ago and he’s eligible to be activated this weekend. Just yesterday we heard that he still had some pain and was a few days off from picking up a ball. Obliques are tricky, so count on the Yankees approaching this conservatively.

  • Manny’s BanWagon

    And the good news just keeps on rolling in….

  • Ben

    Banuelos just went back on the AAA DL as well. Damn.

  • Fernando

    The injuries are just getting ridiculous. No surprise that Gardener and Roberston needed longer stays.

  • SMK

    Definitely an injury that’s better to err on the side of caution.

    Also, one of the side effects of this should be a fresher Robertson towards the end of the season.

  • Cris Pengiucci

    Grumble, grumble, grumble ….
