New York Yankees: Bad news from Bombers camp

The first bad news out of New York Yankees camp came today, as it seems that All-Star pitcher David Robertson is scheduled to have an MRI on his foot.

This is the last thing any Yankee fan wants to hear, as Robertson was virtually indispensable in the team’s success last season.

Yankees beat writer Bryan Hoch broke the news just minutes ago on MLB.com that Robertson was diagnosed with a right mid-foot sprain after falling down a flight of stairs while moving boxes at his residence.

Robertson has already had an x-ray, which came out negative but that doesn’t explain why he is already wearing around walking boot.

Skipper Joe Girardi said that he thinks Robertson will still be ready for Opening Day on April 5th and that he should miss only two weeks of camp. But Girardi did add, “We’ll have to wait and see.”

Yikes!

Yankee fans know all too well how the team loves to downplay injuries but all you can do now is just hope this is not the case in this situation.

Robertson was an All-Star in 2011, as the reliever pitched 66 innings, posting a 1.08 ERA, allowing just one homer, eight earned runs and threw 100 strikeouts. Robertson was considered by many to be the best reliever in baseball last season, as he came in 11th in the AL CY Young voting and even made the MVP ballot, finishing 22nd overall.

    Very easy to explain.

    '"Walking boots, also known as walking casts, are removable, usually stiff supports designed to immobilize the ankle and provide increased support during walking. They have been proven effective in the treatment and healing of sprained ankles and even minor fractures. They tend to be more comfortable than a fiberglass or plaster cast, and can be removed for bathing or sleeping, according to your doctor’s orders."

    No Yankee conspiracy today.
