Aardsma shut down with pain in right elbow


Via Erik Boland, rehabbing right-hander David Aardsma was shut down with pain in his surgically repaired right elbow. “His body basically said, ‘No, no. Too fast,’” said Brian Cashman. “He felt some pain in the medial area (of the elbow) … It happens. So we’re going to back off.”

Aardmsa, 30, is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery and had allowed one unearned run in five minor league rehab innings earlier this month. Cashman said they still expect him back this year, but a mid-July return is now unlikely. Aardsma’s 30-day rehab clock resets with the setback and will begin once he appears in another minor league game, hopefully in a week or two.

    This has been one bitch of a week for Yankee pitchers.

    At least this will quiet the “who should we send down or cut” talk. Wait until they’re actually ready before debating about optioning Cody Eppley.

  9. jayfoot says:

    Wise was the best Yankee pitcher tonight…maybe they should leave hm in the pen?

  10. A-Rod's Wingman says:

    Exactly why I said they need more bullpen help, Aardsma and Joba should have no effect on their plans this year.

      Disagree. You have to consider them based on the information you have. There is no certainty with baseball players, that doesn’t mean you just ignore them all.
