2:12pm: Aardsma told Dan Barbarisi the groin injury is nothing serious and he will throw a bullpen session tomorrow. Sounds like no big deal, thankfully.

1:30pm: Via Joel Sherman: David Aardsma is currently sidelined by a groin injury. He doesn’t say anything about the nature or extent of the injury or how long the right-hander will be out.

Aardsma, 31, allowed one run in an inning of work against the Tigers last Saturday, the last time he appeared in a game. With Boone Logan (elbow) and Clay Rapada (shoulder) out with injury and David Robertson having trouble getting loose earlier this week, the Yankees’ primary relievers are dropping like flies. Good thing it’s only early-March and the season doesn’t start for another three weeks.

    One day without and injury report would be nice. Is that to much to ask?

  • Anthony

    I mean the only explanation is that physical injuries are now contagious or something.

    • Jersey Joe

      I think the Mets rubbed 2009 jerseys all over the ST locker room.

      This is bad.

      • Anthony

        Its nuts.

  • Dalek Jeter

    Okay so, Over/Under 500 days missed by all injured players combined this season.

    • Barry’s Gift Basket

      I’ll take the Over, not by much though.

      Arod 100
      Pineda 100
      Youkilis+Hafner 100
      Tex+Grandy 80
      Rest of the pitchers combined 80

      There you probably have 460 days plus; Gardner could miss time, so does Jeter, Aardsma and God knows who else.

  • EndlessJose

    How many “No big deal” injuries can one team have?

    • Robinson Tilapia

      I’d say anything about 25 and you should consider saging the clubhouse.

    • dalelama

      Add 62 Aroid is going to sit out the year.

  • lightSABR

    So… who’s the next Yankee to get injured? Anyone care to place bets?

    • gageagainstthemachine

      I’m sensing a RAB poll in the near future…

    • trr

      How ’bout Cano gets hurt playing for the D/R?
      That would just about put an end to things…

  • Slappy McWaterbug

    Lots. Considering this guy is at best the fourth right hander on the bullpen depth chart, I don’t understand what all the fuss is about.

    • Slappy McWaterbug

      Effing reply fail.

    • Robinson Tilapia

      I think there’s a healthy dose of sarcasm going around.

      I’d like to request that the Senator from EddardWorld take the floor…

      • MannyGeee

        This. The #EddardWorld Political scene is no joke.

    • gageagainstthemachine

      What?! Is the Hindenburg doing blimp coverage of the ST game today too!? WHEN WILL IT ALL END!!!

      • Havok9120

        Oh my God. Can you imagine if the blimp crashed on the field and took out like half the travel squad?

  • LarryM, Fl.

    MLB has just announced the Yankees are officially on rehab until further notice. All past Fantasy camp players are invited back to complete the remainder of the ST schedule.

  • Gonzo

    Listen to me, Axisa. You’ve gotta tell them! Soylent Green is Yankees! We’ve gotta stop them somehow!

  • MannyGeee

    OK this is just getting silly. I imagine the clubhouse in Tampa looks like an old WWII bunker hospital, dudes all bandaged up and sullen…

    • Havok9120

      Like the Bastogne episode of Band of Brothers or a scene out of MASH.

    • cheddar

      Lieutenant Da-ave… I brought you ice cream… Lieutenant Da-ave… Ice cream…

  • MannyGeee

    Also, someone wrap Joba in bubble wrap. You know… just in case

    I think it’s time the Steinbrenners stopped this by letting the Children of Israel go.
