4:39pm: It’s officially a right rotator cuff strain for Hafner. He had surgery on the shoulder in 2008 and has been on and off the DL with various problems since. Pronk missed a few days with soreness earlier this year.
4:11pm: Travis Hafner is heading to the DL with a shoulder injury, Joe Girardi announced. Derek Jeter is likely to come off the DL on Sunday to take his roster spot as long as he feels good tomorrow. The Cap’n had eight at-bats in a simulated game with Short Season Staten Island in their ballpark this afternoon. If they activate him, it will mean the Yankees are pretty confident Jeter can play shortstop full-time because they have five games in NL parks next week.
