    Here’s a quick rundown of some players who have gone on the disabled list at one point or another this year for the Yankees:

    Michael Pineda, C.C. Sabathia, Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, David Robertson, Joba Chamberlain, Brett Gardner, Alex Rodriguez

    In other words; their starting left fielder has essentially missed the entire season, their closer is out for the season after a torn ACL, and was followed to the disabled list by their All-Star setup man. Another of their top four relievers hasn’t been able to play yet this season either, and three starting pitchers, perhaps their three best, have been on the disabled list, with two of them hitting the 60 day DL and Pineda not throwing a pitch all season. In addition, Nick Swisher has had two injuries that required extended breaks but did not land him on the disabled list.

    The New York Yankees had a couple of chances to score on one of the best pitchers in the American League and could not capitalize. Of course, the converse is Felix Hernandez (9-5) pitched his way out of tough jams and showed why he is one of the best. Either way, it adds up to a win for the Seattle Mariners, 4-2. Freddy Garcia, Hernandez’s idol growing up, pitched seven and a third innings before leaving for Joe Girardi’s bullpen carosel in the eighth. He had retired fifteen batters in a row upon his exit. He gets the loss and falls to 4-4. Curtis Granderson hit his 27th homer in the first inning and went two for four for the Yankees. The real bad news of the game for the Yankees is that they have lost Alex Rodriguez who suffered a non-displaced fracture in his hand after being hit by a pitch.
