Posts Tagged ‘Disabled List’

If you were listening to the Yankees telecast, you must have heard Michael Kay and David Cone break the news that Masahiro Tanaka has just landed on the 15-day disabled list with what they’re calling a “tender wrist.” That sounds like it’s not connected to the UCL tear and we may not have to sound the alarms just yet. Coney said that this report begs a lot of questions and wonders if Tanaka is compensating because of his elbow.

At the same time, no injury to Masahiro’s arm should be taken lightly. According to reports, Brian Cashman has stated that there is “no change” in Tanaka’s elbow. He was also asked if this could be a Tommy John surgery “precursor”…to which he said, “could be.”

Tanaka will be shut down for 7-10 days. We may not see him for another month or so. Nobody knows for sure. Now, we play a waiting game and see how this unfolds.

The big question so far this season is: What’s wrong with Phil Hughes? After his third poor outing last night, the Yankees have placed Hughes on the disabled list with what the Yankees are calling a “dead arm.” It’s not the first time we’ve heard of this. Just last year, that’s what they claimed Javier Vazquez had. Bartolo Colon will take Hughes’ spot in the rotation, and RHP Lance Pendleton takes his place on the roster. It was originally reported that Phil would be sent down to Triple-A Scranton, but those reports were false. Let’s hope Phil can figure out whatever it is that’s wrong with him.

Update: 5:33PM ET: New York Post reporter, Brian Costello just tweeted: “Sorry for the wrong info on Hughes. My source got it mixed up. My apologies……Sounds like Hughes may have talked his way out of a trip to the minors”

Andy Pettitte was placed on the 15-day DL on Jul 19th with a strained left groin. Sixty-two days later, Andy is about to take the hill again.

Pettitte was having a phenomenal year before he went on the disabled list, compiling an 11-2 record with a 2.88ERA. We may have been looking at another Yankees starter gunning for that 20th win, but the injury really knocked him out for a big chunk of the season. Let’s all hope he regains his form from earlier this year, and is raring to go come October.

The guys on the YES Network and a bunch of the beat writers just reported that Andy Pettitte was forced to leave early with a strained left groin. This is not exactly what we wanted to hear today. That’s two days in a row, where the starter got pulled in the 3rd inning due to injury. I don’t exactly know where they go from here, but it doesn’t sound like he’ll be making his next start. We don’t know how severe the injury is just yet, but a DL stint is a possibility.

Update: 3:15PM ET: Let’s not forget teammate, Curtis Granderson, had a Grade II left groin strain and was on the DL for about a month. At Andy’s age, I think it would take longer to heal. Still no word on how serious the injury is.

Update: 5:07PM ET: From Peter Botte: Girardi on Pettitte: “He’s probably headed to the DL. (Grade 1 strain).”

NEW YORK- JULY 18: Andy Pettitte
