Heathcott (thumb) and Logan (elbow) battling injuries

By

Via Bryan Hoch & Sweeny Murti: Both Slade Heathcott (sprained thumb) and Boone Logan (sore elbow) are battling injuries. Both guys will be out a few days after MRIs came back clean.

Heathcott, 22, hurt himself (surprise!) when he ran into Ronnie Mustelier at full speed the other day (video). No word on his timetable yet. The Yankees have been taking it easy on the 28-year-old Logan so far in camp, but that apparently hasn’t helped. He’s coming off a career-high workload that included a league-leading 80 appearances.

    Heathcott showed some nice range on the ball

  • Travis L.

    If Logan joins Cabral on the DL, do we go with Rapada and Rondon (or call up Spence), or use Rapada (LOOGY) and used someone from the group of Kelley/Miller/Warren/Perez/Daley group?

    Still cant get over how much ground he covered. He could probably cover the entire outfield himself.

    When do you guys think Slade will make it to AAA?

    • Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting)

      3-4 injuries from now

        Well done.

    Damn, Slade’s fast.

    If I was in charge of the Yankees I’d have Slade hang out with Robbie 24/7 at the park. I dunno which one would rub off on the other but it’s a win-win.

    Mustelier looks at him like “Hey I have a shot at getting a job here, don’t fuck it up.”

    Also, anyone notice MLB’s spelling of Mustelier?

    health is a skill

    slade might be the only player who increases the injury risk of his teammates

      I was going say watch Slade put Tyler and Mason on the DL this summer in Trenton.

      lol

  • I am not the droids you’re looking for…

    Ugh. Just earlier I posted how amazing it was that Slade wasn’t hurt on that collision. Oops.
