Update: Phelps has bruised forearm, x-rays negative

Curtis Granderson out at least four weeks with fractured pinky

10:29pm: The x-rays came back negative, so officially it is just a right forearm contusion. No word on whether Phelps will make his next start yet. Here’s video of the injury.

: Phelps has a bruised forearm and will head for precautionary x-rays. Joe Girardi didn’t seem too concerned during his post-game chat.

9:49pm: David Phelps was taken out of tonight’s game after being by a line drive in the right arm. It looked like it got him somewhere near the elbow. I couldn’t tell if he was in pain or just angry after getting hit, but it was clear something wasn’t right. Stay tuned for updates. Sigh.

    What else could f’ing happen to this team? Everyone is a risk to get injured. I’m beginning to worry that I’m at risk from a major injury just watching them

      It’s amazing Mike hasn’t been injured for blogging about them. Actually I see it now Mike out for a month with Carpal Tunnel and is being replaced by Eddard.

  • Eddard

    You probably just have a template ________ leaves the game with __________ injury. This is getting ridiculous.

    Why haven’t you put up a “Days since last injury” counter on the website?

    I guess you’re probably too busy to keep resetting it…

    What on earth did this years Yankees do to piss off the baseball injury god this much yet keep the winning god on their side?

    Brett Gardner leaves game after falling into manta ray tank and being fatally attacked by a manta ray. Gardner has been placed on the 60-day DL, melky mesa called up from Triple A Scranton.

    • Robinson Tilapia

      Melky Mesa falls into puddle awkwardly. Sprains brain. Goes on 60 day DL.

    • nsalem

      If he was fatally attacked I don’t think they would bother with the 60 day DL.

        Yeah, they may as well just release him at that point.
        He probably won’t be any good ever again.

    As I commented this morning in the “Teix is coming back” thread, no use fretting how will we keep Overbay or fit Nova in – New players will get hurt as injured players come back.

    You seriously have to wonder whether Grandy will look for a one year pillow contract – if he is out for anything like six weeks, going into early July or even All Star break with 1 homer and 1 Run batted in is not a great way to get a great Free agency deal – poor guy!

    • Game of Throws

      I was thinking the same thing It would be nice if Grandy was back next year.

    Phelps went for precautionary x-rays, girardi said he didn’t think it was anything serious

    • Robinson Tilapia

      He’s dead?

  • Preston

    He’ll be out just long enough that they’ll give the spot back to Nova and then have to watch two months of his starts before they flip it back.

    X-rays negative for Phelps: http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2013/05/24/x-rays-negative-for-phelps/

    Everyone, exhale. Preferably in the form of a foul curse on the moron who plunked Grandy.

  • Need Pitching & Hitting (but mostly hitting)

    X-rays negative.
    So at least there’s that.

      This was the injury that concerned me.

        PITCHING and especially STARTING PITCHING!!!

        Phelps will make his next start he see Nova in the dugout he not about to even unlock the door.

        • mustang (The Has Been & Wannabes Bunch 2013)

          Just fell in love with Phelps report ask him if he will miss his next start without blinking ” Not at all I will be fine.”

    Whew, the ramifications of a serious injury to the right arm would’ve been very concerning, thankfully it appears it won’t be much and hopefully he’ll be out there again in 4 days. That game against the Mets is at home too, instead of at Citi, so at least he won’t have to worry about hitting (avoids some extra work for the arm).

    Is there any chance that if Pineda is healthy that they would take phelps out of rotation either cause he is hurt or because nuno is not ready or they think Pinedas’ a power pitcher who will do better. By the way is there any video on Pineda pitching on thursday. I am wondering if this guy changed his delivery.
