    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    Major update on Joba today: He's throwing off a half mound. Wearing only a small ankle brace, "something tiny that you or I could buy at Wal-Mart." Maybe it's not much, but it's a very long way from that "career-ending injury" talk we were hearing in March.

    http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2012/06/0...-a-half-mound/

    It’s become part of the daily routine to ask Joe Girardi for updates on Brett Gardner and Dave Robertson. Today, he offered this bit of news from Tampa: Joba Chamberlain threw off a half mound today.

    “I’m sure he can move around enough,” Girardi said. “I don’t think he’s at the stage where he’s sprinting yet, but he can move around well enough to do his bullpens, yeah. … I’ve always said, I believe that he’ll be back. Now, I’m no doctor, no rehab therapist, but just knowing Joba, I believe he’s going to be back for us this year.”

    Girardi said Chamberlain is wearing a small brace on his ankle, something tiny that you or I could buy at Wal-Mart. It’s not “some crazy contraption.” Throwing a half mound today, does that mean Chamberlain is essentially at the beginning of a spring training schedule?

    “It’s probably a little bit before, just because there’s some other hurdles he’s going to have to clear, and a pitcher wouldn’t normally come in and do a half mound early in spring training,” Girardi said. “I think his arm’s going to be fine. It’s going to come down to, can he tolerate the pounding that you go through as a pitcher? Having to cover the base. When you land as a pitcher. When you push off as a pitcher. Those are the hurdles he’s going to have to clear.
    Meanwhile, on the Gardner/Robertson front:

    • Gardner took batting practice inside again today. Girardi said he won’t start hitting on the field until next week.

    • Robertson actually went ahead with plans to throw a bullpen today. Girardi wasn’t sure how many pitches, but he said it was a regular bullpen, meaning Robertson was throwing off a mound for the first time since straining his oblique. It seemed the Yankees would likely push that bullpen back a day after yesterday’s rain.

    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    can't wait for Brett The Jett to return

    He is far and away the best LF in all of baseball when u combine range with arm strength & accuracy. Those aspects are almost as important as the havoc he creates on the paths with his speed, and ability to get on base, evident by his career .355 OBP mark. FWIW he also got off to a decent start this year at .425, despite coming in just 28 AB's. Even though I've been calling for The Jett to hit in the #1 hole, for two years now. Fact of the matter is u CAN NOT mess with Jeter right now with him tearing the cover off the ball, at .336/.384. However, If Alex and the offense do continue to struggle and Gardner catches fire, then, I would say put Brett #1/Jeet/Cano/Grandy/Alex/Tex/Raul/Swish/Martin your. But don't forget having such a dynamic weapon in that #9 hole to roll over the top of your order is an unbelievable luxury in itself which usually happens during 3 of Brett's every 4 at bats unless he makes the 3rd out of course. How many teams have a guy with a career .355 OBP and 98 stolen bases since 2010 hitting 9th in MLB? Please let me, none...

    David Robertson: He will throw a bullpen today. He is at the beginning of the process of bullpens, batting practice sessions and, eventually, rehab games, and is still not expected back before mid-June.

    Joba Chamberlain: As Rob Parker reported over the weeked from Detroit, Joba threw off that oddity of modern rehabilitation, the "half-mound,'' but is still unable to run on his ankle -- which he dislocated during spring training -- so no real timetable is possible yet.

    David Aardsma: Had Tommy John surgery a month after Joba last season, so was not counted on at all for 2012. But he has progressed so well in his rehab that he is now considered a strong possibility to pitch for the Yankees this season. Last week, Aardsma tweeted to me that he would be ready by early July; Brian Cashman says August or September is more likely.

    Aardsma ready this year? Wow - didn't expect that, but who's complaining?

    D-Rob will be a sight for sore eyes in a few weeks, if all goes well. Sounds like Joba still won't be ready in the near future. I would imagine if he can't run yet, it will take some time to build the leg strength back up.

    Me either. That's definitely the eye opening item in that news blurb. Aardsma may turn out to be a very big signing by Cashman.

    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    FWIW has anyone ever got excited or thought about the idea of trying out D-Rob as a starter next season? Personally I really felt the Yankees should have experimented with this idea during ST, especially before Joba was lost for the season. Now obviously with Mo & Joba both out, his position as set-up man/closer is a no-brainer. But let's just assume Mo & Joba return healthy next year and Soriano is brought back. I mean when u throw in Logan/Wade/Phelps I think trying this guy out in the rotation next year would be wise. Good chance both Kuroda and Pettitte will not be back and The Killer Bee's aren't looking as close to the majors as they once were. Fact is we are going to need starters next year and I wouldn't expect any payroll bumps. I honestly think he could be one of the best starters in MLB, his stuff is just that nasty & consistent.

    I see that you're new here so first let me say "Welcome".

    We use this thread strictly for updates on injured Yankees' players. Think of it as a news thread where you can just quickly check to see if there's anything new brewing with the Yankees that are on the DL.

    Your post that I quoted above, and also the one you made about Brett Gardner yesterday, while containing information that may very well be conversation worthy doesn't belong in this thread. Each Yankees' player has his own performance thread that this type of post would fit into. Here are links to David Robertson's 2012 performance thread and to Brett Gardner's 2012 performance thread:

    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    Sounds like good news on Gardner:
    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/yan...o-play-vs-mets
    NEW YORK -- Brett Gardner got five at-bats in an extended spring game today in Tampa, and according to Joe Girardi, "all went well.'' This leaves open the possibility, however remote, that Gardner could play in one of the three games against the Mets here this weekend, most likely the finale on Sunday.

    Girardi said Gardner would get the day off on Wednesday and then play "a few days in a row'' before a determination is made about whether to reactivate him. Gardner, who has appeared in just nine games this year, suffered a strained right elbow while diving for a ball in left field on April 17.

    "Everything is pretty good right now,'' Girardi said. "We'll just have to see how he does. It's possible (he could play this weekend), but we'll just have to see how it goes.''"
    Fingers crossed; it'll be great to have him back in the lineup--and in the outfield.

    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    And some more good news:
    http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2012/06/0...eighth-inning/
    Dave Robertson is back at Yankee Stadium, but he’s still probably a week and a half away from being back on the active roster. When he does return, he’ll probably fall back into a setup role behind Yankees new closer Rafael Soriano.

    “We’re probably going to put Robby in some situations in the eighth inning when he comes back, and then we’ll just go from there,” Joe Girardi said. “Soriano has done a very good job, whatever we’ve asked him to do. We feel that they’re interchangeable. Sori has the experience down there. Let’s just get Robby back and see how he’s throwing the baseball, but I expect that we’ll try to insert him into the eighth inning to start out. I would love to be able to do that, eighth inning and a lead.”

    Robertson threw a 35-pitch bullpen at the Stadium this afternoon. He hopes to face hitters on Thursday, and if that goes well, he’ll start a rehab assignment. There’s no official timetable for his return, but late next week seems to make sense.

    “I’ve cut it loose,” Robertson said. “Now it’s about being sharp again, and getting game ready. … I was really hoping I was going to be back in Detroit. I wasn’t ready. If everything goes well, (be back in) eight or nine days, hopefully.”

    Mariano Rivera said this afternoon that his blood clot had cleared up and surgery on his injured right knee had been scheduled for June 12. The procedure will be performed by the Mets’ team physican, Dr. David Altchek of the Hospital for Special Surgery.

    Rivera expects he will be able to pitch again in 2013. He won’t even think about pitching this season, which, he admits, would require nothing short of a miracle.

    “I can’t. I don’t want to think about it,” Rivera said. “Miracles happen. But I just have to be able to do what I need to do first..”

    Brett Gardner played in a rehab game Tuesday and experienced normal soreness today, according to Joe Girardi. He took the day off from activity but will return to the field for another rehab game Thursday, likely in Tampa.

    David Robertson is scheduled to throw batting practice tomorrow. If he comes away without any issue, the right-hander will pitch in a rehab game over the weekend, likely on Sunday. It hasn’t been determined where Robertson will pitch if his does pitch this weekend.

    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    The cause of Teixeira's persistent cough has been discovered:

    The mystery of Mark Teixeira's persistent cough was solved on Thursday, as a specialist told the Yankees first baseman that he has suffered nerve damage to his vocal cords.

    Teixeira was pleased to finally receive a definitive answer and a treatment plan. An early April illness started the coughing fits, which were severe enough to create a lasting issue.

    "That's actually really good news for me, because we think we found the reason for all of this," Teixeira said. "She gave me some medicine that will hopefully help the nerve calm down. It's good news for me. It puts my mind at ease."
    "Because of the damage to the vocal cords, you're always coughing," Teixeira said. "And until you stop coughing, you're not going to get the inflammation out of there. She said it's a vicious cycle, and she said the same thing every other doctor said: 'Go take two weeks off.' That's not going to happen, but it's something I can manage with some medication."

    Mark Teixeira visited an ENT today -- that's an ear-nose-throat specialist -- to find out the cause of his persistent cough and was told he has residual nerve damage to one of his vocal cords from the bronchial illness he has been battling all season. The damage was discovered after the doctor sent a camera down his throat to take some gruesome photos. Now with a combination of medication and one vocal restriction -- "Only talking to the media after wins'' -- Teixeira hopes to kick the cough once and for all.

    David Robertson threw 25 pitches off the mound at Yankee Stadium this afternoon. Afterward, Joe Girardi said he "did OK,'' but he said it with a certain lack of conviction. Girardi said it was as-yet-undetermined whether Robertson, on the DL since May 14 with a left oblique strain, would throw another mound session or throw batting practice before being sent on a rehab assigment. "I’m sure all the powers that be will make that decision pretty quick,'' said Girardi.

    Joba Chamberlain will throw a bullpen tomorrow, which came as news to his manager, since Joba announced it via his Twitter feed. "I don't tweet,'' Girardi said. "Maybe he'll tweet (tomorrow) how he did.''

    David Aardsma tweeted: "for 3 days straight. Looks like I'll be throwing my batting practice bullpen in the cage'' #ifimlucky. Whatever that means.
    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/yan...-does-not-play
    Brett Gardner was supposed to play for Class A Tampa this afternoon but came up "a little stiff,'' according to Joe Girardi, after playing in a game on Tuesday. So his activity was limited to taking batting practice today, after which, the manager said, "he felt very good.''

    Now, the plan is to fly Gardner to Charleston, where he is expected to play this weekend for the Class A River Dogs. According to Girardi, a threat of rain in Tampa this weekend prompted the move to Charleston. "They want him to play day after day and there was concern he wouldn't be able to do that in Tampa,'' Girardi said.

    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    From the link two posts above, the daily update on Robertson and Gardner:

    Yankees reliever David Robertson threw 25 pitches of live batting practice on Thursday at Yankee Stadium and is close to reporting for a Minor League rehabilitation assignment.

    Manager Joe Girardi watched Robertson's session and said the team should decide by Friday if the hurler -- on the disabled list since May 15 with a strained left oblique -- is ready to join Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    "He looked OK, so the next decision is, does he throw in a game or do we have him do one more batting practice before he throws in a game?" Girardi said. "I'm sure that all the powers that be will make a decision pretty quickly."

    Girardi said that outfielder Brett Gardner took batting practice on Thursday in Tampa, Fla., and is ready to join Class A Charleston for a Minor League rehab game. Gardner felt some soreness after his last hitting session but reported no problems Thursday.

    "I was a little concerned, but the fact that he felt better today, felt good today, makes me feel good," Girardi said. "He hasn't played much in the past month and a half, so I wasn't sure how his arm would feel."

    http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2012/06/0...ab-assignment/
    David Robertson (oblique) came through yesterday’s 25-pitch batting practice fine and will start a rehab assignment on Sunday. He will likely pitch AAA ball in Rochester against the Twins’ affiliate.

    Robertson said he has not felt pain in his oblique in about a week. He threw full force on Thursday to test it and did not feel any discomfort.

    “I’m throwing and I feel good,” Robertson said. “I felt like I tested it yesterday. I threw the ball hard. I threw the ball hard in all my bullpens. I really tried to make sure it’s ready. The last thing I want to do is say I’m fine and have something else happen. I’m trying to avoid that.”

    He thinks he will pitch Sunday, take Monday off and pitch again on Tuesday. He hopes that would put him in line to return Friday night in Washington.

    “I think that’s realistic,” said Girardi, who will not need Robertson to pitch consecutive days before activating him.
    Same source:
    • Brett Gardner (elbow) will begin his rehab assignment tonight in Charleston. Girardi said it is conceivable Gardner could return before Robertson, which would mean while the Yankees are in Atlanta from Monday-Wednesday.

    “Gardy could be quicker (than Robertson) if everything goes OK, but we have to see how he feels after each start,” Girardi said.
    http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/stor...s-throws-mound
    TAMPA, Fla. -- New York Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain threw off a mound Friday for the first time since hurting his ankle in March.

    Chamberlain made 25 throws in a batting cage at the Yankees' minor league complex. He had been throwing off a half-height mound to help regain his form.

    "It felt good," Chamberlain said. "Another step forward. That's all you can do."

    Chamberlain says he will pitch this season.

    "Is that even a question?" he said.
    Same source:
    David Aardsma threw 40 pitches during his third batting practice session and might be ready to pitch in a simulated game late next week. Aardsma, 13-15 with a 4.20 ERA in 254 relief appearances over six seasons, had elbow-ligament replacement surgery last July.

    • Mr Coffee may have broken his pinkie toe when he accidentally kicked the leg of the coffee table while walking across his living room. "It's barely swollen", an unconcerned Mrs Coffee remarked. She added that he will clean off the deck tomorrow as scheduled. Mr Coffee says he will seek a second opinion.

    He's not ready as he woke up with elbow pain again. I don't know what is going on, but the Yankees need to find out as this isn't even his throwing arm. This injury has hurt the flexibility of the Yankees offense and outfield defensive alignment.

    Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner felt more pain in his right elbow this morning and will be sent to see a doctor on Monday.

    Manager Joe Girardi said that he does not expect Gardner back until at least the All-Star break after this setback, his second since suffering a strain making an outfield catch in April. Girardi said that he cannot be sure exactly when the Yankees will get Gardner back.

    Yankees hurler Hiroki Kuroda has a bruise on his left foot but he believes he will be able to make his next scheduled start.
