Yankees News and Notes: Injuries-Are-Not-Fun Edition

Mason Williams, "the Great Gazoo," will be taking his talents to South Carolina this year. At least to begin the season...

Good morrow, sirs and madams!

  • Michael Pineda hit the DL yesterday with tendinitis in his right shoulder. They did not put an immediate timetable on his return, but hopefully it will not take too long. Pineda should take his time getting healthy before he comes back; they invested a lot in him, and they need him to be healthy.
  • Cesar Cabral was also sidelined with a stress fracture in his left elbow, effectively ending his chances at making the team as the second lefty. He was not officially put on the DL yet, but manager Joe Girardi confirmed that he will open the season there. Although Girardi would not say so, this move effectively assures lefty reliever Clay Rapada of a spot on the 25-man roster. Considering he only made his first mistake of the season yesterday (a homer to Astros lefty Brian Bogusevic), Rapada should not be too bad.
  • The Daily Record wrote about the Yankees' abundance of arms and how it's helping them get through their Spring Training injuries.
  • Old people in the major leagues have achieved a much success! Mariano. Moyer. Believe it.
  • The Yankees' A-ball affiliate, the Charleston Riverdogs, announced their 2012 roster. Considering the top prospects that will be playing for them (Gary Sanchez, Mason Williams, Dante Bichette Jr., Jose Campos), it would be a treat to be able to see them. If you're down in the area, I would highly recommend it.
