Shawn Kelley day-to-day with continued back tightness


Shawn Kelley was not available for tonight’s day due to lingering tightness in his back, Joe Girardi announced. “He does not have the flexibility to finish his pitches,” said the skipper. No tests are planned at the moment. Kelley did warm up in yesterday’s game, but apparently something is still not right. With David Robertson married to save situations, the bullpen is really short right now.

    ichiro is day to day with back and knee soreness

  • Tom

    Joe said in the postgame that Ichiro was also unavailable today (day to day)

    No Delin, no Warren, no Kelley, Robertson can’t pitch till the 9th and tonight was your result. Thorton has one job and can’t do it. Preston isn’t good. Aceves was the guy that was supposed to bridge the gap to Robertson and he was terrible tonight.

      i think they should call up montgomery

      • Jorge Steinbrenner

        What’s your 40-man move?

        • fabricio

          maybe dfa Claiborne?

          • Jorge Steinbrenner

            Because you’re mad at him today? This team has a gassed bullpen. You don’t risk losing one.

          I don’t care, you got to do it. Monty is ready and is the real deal. Yankees bullpen needs help.

          • Jorge Steinbrenner

            What has he done in the past season or so to show he’s the “real deal?”

            • fabricio

              well he has pretty good numbers in the minors and look at everyone else the yanks have been calling up might as well give him a shot. he has a 1.53 era this season 19 strikeouts 10 walks and in 17.2 innings pitched he’s only given up seven hits its worth a shot

    He’s not married to save situations, they’re just holding Robertson back so he’s fresh enough to start on Thursday…

  • Kelly

    Kelly should be traded causing to many problems in rotation and injuries will continue time to go!
