Boone Logan and his barking biceps — he described it as tightness in the back of his elbow — went for an MRI this morning but the results were not yet available when Joe Girardi spoke to the media before this afternoon’s game. As we wait for the update, here are some other injury info courtesy of Chad Jennings, Joel Sherman, and Andy McCullough:

  • Shawn Kelley (triceps) threw in the bullpen with no pain this morning. “Felt real good. Felt better than it has in a few months, actually,” he said. He could be available tomorrow.
  • David Robertson (shoulder) feels better, but he’s still going to rest for another 3-4 days before playing catch. He’ll then throw a bullpen session before rejoining the bullpen.
  • Kevin Youkilis (back) is hitting off a tee and soft toss. He’s heading to Tampa on Monday to play in simulated games and is shooting to rejoin the team in the final week of the season.

  1. And in merrie olde England says:

    Youk is going to be 100% fit for clearing his locker out.

  2. forensic says:

    You know there must be a very exciting and interesting game going on when new posts come out in the middle of the game.

  3. Mouse says:

    We sign Youkilis for $12 million and get absolutely nothing from him. Hafner? Same story.

    Meanwhile, the Sox sign Napoli for $5 million and he kills us all season.

    Cashman is so stupid.

    • D$1184 says:

      Napoli has been a first baseman all season, not one inning behind the plate and at the time he signed with the Red Sox, the Yankees believed they were going to have Mark Teixiera at first base all season. There was no way Cashman could have known Tex would be out all season back in February.

    • YankeeFan says:

      Not exactly surprising either.

      Youkilis was terrible away from Fenway last 3 years. From 2010-2012 his line was (626ABs): .216/.325/.388

      Napoli last 3 seasons (1174ABs): .261/.355/.520

      I really wanted Napoli in the offseason, admittedly though I thought he would be able to catch a bit.

    • JGYank says:

      Napoli originally signed a 3 year 39M deal but that had something wrong with his physical and then got his current deal. If you wanted to get someone who couldn’t pass a physical and wanted 39M then go right ahead.

  4. Eddard says:

    Doesn’t make a bit of difference. These 4 could come back fully healthy tomorrow and it wouldn’t make one difference in the 2013 Yankees postseason chances.
