    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    This makes it sound as if he will definitely have the bone spur removed:

    http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2012/10/2...-spur-removed/

    Explaining some of CC Sabathia’s elbow soreness, without creating concern about a long-term problem, the Yankees expected their ace to have a bone spur removed by Dr. James Andrews in the coming days.

    General manager Brian Cashman confirmed that Sabathia will visit Dr. Andrews, but would not comment on the bone spur. A Yankees official, however, confirmed that the team believes Sabathia has a bone spur that will be removed. That could explain the elbow soreness that led to a brief stint on the disabled list this season.

    That said, a bone spur is relatively good news. It’s a fairly common injury, easily fixed, and comes without the long-term concerns of ligament damage.

    An expert's view of Jeter's post-surgery outlook (this expert is actually an orthopedic surgeon, unlike most of the experts on this Board):

    http://www.newsday.com/sports/baseba...ener-1.4135432

    And although the prognosis for a full recovery takes things up close to next April, an expert said he sees the shortstop being ready by Opening Day with time to spare.

    "I think that's a reasonable goal, assuming everything goes smoothly," said Dr. Steven Weinfeld, an orthopedic surgeon and chief of foot and ankle service at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. "Most patients can start running activities at three months."

    Jeter suffered a fractured ankle while diving for Jhonny Peralta's grounder in the 12th inning of Game 1 of the ALCS, the first of four straight losses to the Tigers.

    After that game, the Yankees gave an initial recovery period of two to three months but altered it to four to five months after announcing last week that Jeter would have surgery.

    Weinfeld, stressing that he had not seen Jeter's X-rays and was offering an opinion, said a possible reason for the timetable change could have been if further tests showed something other than just a break.

    "The thing that takes longer, that might have caused the timetable to get greater. When you have an ankle fracture, you have a boney injury and sometimes you have a boney injury combined with a ligament injury," Weinfeld said. "It's the ligament injury that may prolong the course of recovery. They may have diagnosed a ligamentous injury at some point later on that may have changed the timetable."

    Weinfeld said that after that kind of surgery, a patient typically would be in a non-weight-bearing cast for about six weeks and that "impact activities" such as running would occur at the three-month point, which would be around Jan. 20.

    I think some people in the Game Threads were wondering about this:

    http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/news/...s_nyy&c_id=nyy

    Granderson reportedly to get eyes checked out

    By Andrew Simon / Special to MLB.com
    Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson set a career high for strikeouts this season, then endured a whiff-heavy postseason.

    Now the club is planning to send the 31-year-old to see an eye specialist to find out if his eyesight contributed to his struggles at the plate, a source told the New York Daily News.

    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    All the quotes are from this source, per Girardi's final press conference of the season:
    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/yan...er-joe-girardi
    -- CC Sabathia has not seen Dr. James Andrews yet about his sore left elbow, and Girardi did not furnish a date for when that consultation will take place. But he said he expected his ace to be ready for the start of spring training.
    What are they waiting for?
    -- The manager said he expects Derek Jeter, who underwent surgery last week on his broken left ankle, to be ready for spring training. "I'm going to have to manage Derek to keep him from trying to do to much," Girardi said. "You know he's going to say he feels great."
    This one made me laugh. I guess the 2012 injury bug spread to the coaches too.
    -- Girardi said he expects all of his coaches to return next season, and two of them possibly better than ever: third-base coach Rob Thomson, who underwent hip surgery last week, and hitting coach Kevin Long, who had elbow surgery today.

    “That’s reasonable,” said Dr. Michael Hausman, Orthopedic Surgeon and Chief of Hand and Elbow Surgery at The Mt. Sinai School of Medicine. “It typically takes 10-12 weeks to get back to normal, so maybe he won’t be throwing as hard as he usually does when he starts out, but he’ll get back there.”

    The surgery is not uncommon for pitchers and Sabathia should be able to get back to the level he was before the injury.

    “It’s usually a quick recovery and the surgery will eliminate the pain the spur causes in the elbow when he releases the ball,” said Dr. David Geier, Director of Sports Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. “If anything, he should be better than he was this year because he shouldn’t have to pitch through discomfort.”

    Here's the Yankees.com story on CC's surgery:

    http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/news/...s_nyy&c_id=nyy

    General manager Brian Cashman said that Sabathia may need to be on a modified program this spring coming off the procedure, which was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala.

    "I would think so," Cashman said. "I have no doubt that he'll be ready by Opening Day, but his Spring Training might be adjusted. The regular season going forward won't be."
    "He hadn't given us any complaints on the elbow, but we were going to have it checked either way," Cashman said. "Then he revealed that it had been bothering him, so I knew surgery was a possibility."

    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    Tidbits from Cashman, speaking at the GM Meetings, on Pineda and Jeter:

    Michael Pineda’s rehab is on track, but he’s still not in the immediate picture

    “I think we’re going to put him off to the side,” Cashman said. “His rehab will take him into — which is going fine, but he’s just flat-ground throwing – but it will take him into late May (or) June. I think it’s best for us to pretend he’s not even there and then have him sneak up on us. And I hope he does, but I’m not going to count on him. I don’t think that’s going to be fair. Our fans need us to obviously put something there that you feel good about, and I don’t want to put something there that will take care of it in April and May and it’s kind of locked in, from June on we’re going to have this guy. That would be a mistake. He’ll be ready when he’s ready, and we’ll be happy to take him. But to count on him would be wrong.”
    • Jeter will not be able to play in the World Baseball Classic because of his ankle injury.

    • Cashman dismissed any concerns about Jeter being able to play shortstop in the wake of his ankle injury. Cashman said the team’s medical staff is telling him Jeter will have time to train and be his old self. “He’s non-weight bearing until January,” Cashman said. “Despite that, all is good on that end.”

    Re: The Injury Update Thread 2012

    Appreciate all the updates here - it's sad, but I'd almost forgotten about Pineda. They are not in a hurry to get him back out there, which, IMO is the right way to go.

    Even without the ankle injury, I'm not so sure I'd want Jeter to participate in the WBC anyway. As for CC, it's very encouraging that he could very well be even better than last year because the bone spur will no longer cause any pain. It makes me appreciate what he was able to do last year even more.

    A little more from CC:
    NEW YORK -- Wearing a brace on his surgically repaired left elbow, CC Sabathia said he expects to be ready for the beginning of spring training in February.

    "I feel pretty good," the Yankees pitcher said as he helped collect goods for Hurricane Sandy relief at Yankee Stadium. "The flexibility is coming back. I expect there to be no delays up until spring training so I should be ready to go."

    At the end of last month, Sabathia had bone spurs removed by Dr. James Andrews. Sabathia has had the spurs since his days with the Cleveland Indians. This past season, Sabathia said he didn't feel the impact of the injury during starts.

    "It would be the day after," Sabathia said. "I couldn't touch my shoulder."

    Sabathia is rehabbing the elbow five days a week. He said he will be able to start a throwing program after Christmas.

    "That's my normal time, anyway," he said.

    Sabathia, 32, went 15-6 with a 3.38 ERA.

    He said he sees no benefit in limiting his innings in the future. Despite two stints on the disabled list, he reached 200 innings for the sixth straight season.

    "I don't know what we get out of that," Sabathia said. "Everybody talks about being on the DL twice and would that help. I think if hadn't been on the DL, I still would have pitched the two good games in the ALDS and probably pitched bad in the ALCS. It is just one of those things. I don't think putting me on a pitch count at my age would do anything good for me."

    Sabathia said he is hoping to convince free agents Andy Pettitte and Hiroki Kuroda to return to the Yankees. He has already lobbied Pettitte a little bit.

    No, but that's obvious, isn't it? I mean ... Games Four and Five of the World Series would have been scheduled for Yankee Stadium on the day before Sandy struck (with all public transportation shut down) and the day it struck. We might still be waiting to play them!

    Obviously, the Yankees had to avert such a disaster, so they took care to get swept in the ALCS, giving themselves plenty of time to get home and clear out their lockers before the tempest hit the city.

    That would explain some of ARod's at bats, where he seemed to be deliberately missing. He didn't want the Yankee fans to be injured trying to get to the game during a storm.

    Mo update:

    http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/news/...s_nyy&c_id=nyy

    Mo takes step toward return to action
    All-time saves leader makes 25 throws during commercial shoot

    By Bryan Hoch / MLB.com
    TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- While there were no hitters and no catcher -- and, really, no real pitches -- on Friday Mariano Rivera climbed back atop a mound for the first time since his season-ending injury, tossing some prop baseballs as part of a commercial shoot.

    "I'm feeling good," said Rivera, who made about 25 throws on the Hackley School's snow-covered diamond. "The rehab has been great; it's been tough, but at the same time, I'm seeing good results. I can't wait to continue and stay 100 percent. A day at a time, like I always tell you guys. A day at a time."

    Rivera, who turns 43 later this month, flashed his smooth, iconic form as he lobbed the baseballs toward a protected cameraman, showing no ill effects from a torn right anterior cruciate ligament, an injury that truncated his season in May.

    Girardi hedges as to whether Jeter will be ready for Opening Day:

    Doubts on Derek's return?
    By Wallace Matthews

    Not exactly, but Yankees manager Joe Girardi did raise the possibility Thursday that it might be overly optimistic to expect Derek Jeter, recovering from a broken ankle, to be ready by Opening Day 2013.

    "He's still basically non-weight-bearing, I believe, so, I really believe it might be a little push (to be ready for the season opener)," Girardi said at Yankee Stadium in between assembling care packages of food and other goodies to be sent to U.S. troops serving in Afghanistan over the holidays. "But I believe he'll find a way to get ready for the season."

    Jeter suffered the injury in the 12th inning of Game 1 of the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers, and originally was believed not to need surgery and to require no more than three months' recovery time, which would have had him ready to resume baseball activities in mid-January.

    But after consulting with a foot and ankle specialist, Jeter wound up having an operation to set the fracture, and his recovery time was lengthened to four to five months, which puts him into March.

    Pressed to explain why he now thought an Opening Day return for Jeter -- who will turn 39 in June -- might be unrealistic, Girardi said, "Well, just because of the rehab and you have to get the full strength and maybe you're not able to start doing the things you normally would in January. So I think there's a little bit of a question, but I think he'll find a way, because he always has. That's who he is."

    Girardi said he had spoken to Jeter "a little bit" since the end of the season and characterized the shortstop's mood as "OK."

    "You spend all year long playing and you look forward to the offseason to be able to relax and do some of the things you want to do," Girardi said. "And he's not going to have that this year because he's going to have a lot of rehab. So I'm sure from that standpoint it's a little bit frustrating, but Derek always finds a way to deal with what he's going through."

    sounds like he is using crutches to get around but not a single photo of him out and about using crutches or a big boot has surfaced in the last month.

    Now this is what Im talking about; evidence that he's out and about.
    no argument. I thought there would be more recent picts of him online but Im probably too addicted to TMZ and the instant celeb updates.
    I'm guessing he is down living and rehabbing in Tampa.
    of course, there is no direct connection but thats where the CIA scandal is focused and there is alot of media down there and maybe one of those media guys might bump into him at a restaurant or someplace and take a picture of him on crutches.
    Jeter is one of the most famous athletes and celebs in America. he is the face of MLB.
    I know he likes to keep complete control of his privacy and image ....
    but the only photograph thats out there of him on crutches is this one?
    http://www.terezowens.com/wp-content...ts-500x476.jpg
    he is probably off the crutches now and walking with the herman munster boot which you might see on his left leg from the pict from yesterday. the docs said no weight bearing on the leg until new years.

    a picture like this would be nice

    I posted this in the Pineda thread, but I'll repeat it here:

    http://yankees.lhblogs.com/2012/11/23/pineda-watch/

    He came to town within the last two weeks for a routine follow-up with Dr. Chris Ahmad, the Yankees’ physician, and Dr. David Altchek, the Mets’ physician who operated on Pineda. He threw at Yankee Stadium on flat ground, his program for about two months.

    “He looked good,” Brian Cashman said. “He’s throwing on flat ground at 90 feet, so I don’t want to get …

    “All I can report is his arm was working very well, very healthy, very loose. He had zip on it. He’s in great physical shape in terms of body weight.

    “He’s not going to be a choice in game action until probably sometime in May or June. Whether it’s majors or minors, who’s to say? We’ve got him to the side. … We certainly have high hopes for him, but in terms of planning and counting on him, it’s in everybody’s interest not to do that right now and just put together as deep and strong a staff as possible and be pleasantly surprised and appreciative if we can welcome him back to the fold at some point.

    “But that’s all for another day. He’s got a lot more hurdles in the rehab process to clear.”
