Yankees place A-Rod on 60-day DL


The Yankees have placed Alex Rodriguez on the 60-day DL to clear room on the 40-man roster for the recently-acquired Shawn Kelley, the team announced. It’s just a procedural move, A-Rod isn’t expected to return form his left hip surgery until after the All-Star break.


  1. You should have shot Arod says:

    He will never see the field this year.

  2. Jay says:

    Over/Under on the number of times a RAB headline reads “Yankees place A-Rod on the 60-day DL” over the next 5 years.

  3. You should have shot Arod says:

    50 games off waiting for him not to mention the boo birds in the bronx.

    Screw aroid.and if he got any friends-screw them too! What about Kelley?Intriguing numbers,but a righty reliever wasn’t a priority.How bout a freakin catcher,

  5. soxhata says:

    if Kelley’s arm blows up,I say never deal with Seattle again.Seriously though,I wonder if Joba might be trade bait,possibly for a catcher,since he is a FA next season,and either Aardsma and or Kelley may fill the bill. just sayin

      You would think that after the Pineda Montero trade there would be some bad blood between the Yankees and Mariners, but they just keep on wealing and dealing.

      Notice: this post was not written with the intent to create a fifty post string on who has won the Pineda Montero trade.

  6. RetroRob says:

    A-Rod’s injured? How did the Yankees manage to keep this quiet for so long?

  7. LK says:

    Was this a separate post simply to try to funnel the A-Rod trolls away from the Almonte trade?

  8. JohnC says:

    I’m sure somewhere, Frank Costanza is screaming: “HOW COULD YOU TRADE ABE ALMONTE? YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL YOU’RE DOING!!!!”

  9. Eddard: Back and better than never says:

    You know you’re not wanted when Yankee fans would rather have Kevin Youkilis starting at 3B. A-Rod should do the best thing he’s ever done for the Yankees, leave. If he won’t bow out gracefully then Hank should undo what he did and eat the contract, if he hasn’t already.
