David Robertson day-to-day with hamstring issue

Yankees place Joba Chamberlain on DL with oblique strain
Cashman confirms Pineda hit mid-90s in Extended Spring Training outing

David Robertson is day-to-day with “crankiness” in his left hamstring, Brian Cashman confirmed. He had an MRI today and it is not a DL situation.

Robertson, 28, limped off the field last night after apparently catching a spike during the follow through of his final pitch. He said afterwards he was fine, but the team send him for tests anyway. Robertson has pitched well this year (3.86 ERA, 3.54 FIP), and with Joba Chamberlain hitting the DL, the Yankees really can’t afford to lose their primary setup man.

    Make it stop….please just make it stop.

    Cashman probably didn’t think ahead and destroy all hair left behind on road trips, thus letting the players’ hair be used for voodoo dolls and getting them injured.

      The Captain was right!

    • Robinson Tilapia

      Why isn’t our 11th string reliever Craig Kimbrel? Cashman failed indeed.

    I think the current stadium must be built on a Native American burial ground.

      Are we absolutely sure they dug up that Ortiz jersey?

    • Bob Buttons

      If that’s the case then why did Joba get affected?

  • Vern Sneaker

    I don’t think this is what Red Barber meant by “Oh, doctor.”

  • lightSABR

    And we’ve officially moved past tragedy into farce. Unbelievable.

  • Rolling Doughnut

    Joba strings together some impressive outings, gets hurt. DRob may not be Houdini anymore, but he’s still DRob, gets hurt. This just has to stop. It must be an all-time record of simultaneous injuries and DL stints. The blog’s baseball sages will confirm this.

    The very mention of Clay Rapada gives me the willies.

      Whoa. A Tremors reference.

      Well done.

    “day to day with crankiness”

    I mean-is he any different than the rest of humanity?

      Sounds like Forensic on a 3:00 AM comment, or me on a game thread after too much Greg.

      • forensic

        I can’t tell. Is this an ok comment or a continuation of the forensic bashing from last night/early this morning?

        • Robinson Tilapia

          I can assure you that I haven’t a clue what went on kat nighltly lot and was just playfully busting your chops. Sorry if the timing sucked.

  • Robinson Tilapia

    I get it. It sucks. Day to days happen, regardless of how overstuffed your DL is.

    Nice timing for an off day.

    • The Real Me

      Hopefully they win in a blowout Friday and Saturday, giving DRob a couple more days off.

      Hey, has anyone spotted “Stairs” around anywhere?

      • Bob Buttons

        People that do sometimes don’t live to tell the tale.

  • forensic

    Geez, this will be quite an interesting bullpen during the Oakland series. Sure is good timing to at least have 2 off days mixed in.

  • jdp

    Remember when they said Jeter’s ankle was “cranky”?
    Turned into an extended DL stay.
    These guys are always hurt worse than the Yankees say they are.

  • sangreal

    Saw this one coming the minute he threw the pitch
