According to reports, outfielder Brett Gardner has been called-up to the majors. David Robertson made his debut yesterday, allowing a run. He didn’t have command of his curve ball but the heater looked lively.
According to Buster Olney:
I don’t know what’s wrong with Yankees outfielder Hideki Matsui, but it would not be a surprise if he has a serious ligament issue. If this was a minor cleanup situation, the Yankees could keep Matsui out now and have him back sometime in August, but that is not how the Yankees are handling this. If Matsui is seriously injured and eventually requires season-ending surgery, it figures the Yankees will be poking around and looking for an outfielder — or a first baseman.
With Godzilla on the shelf for who knows how long, there has been talk of Barry Bonds. The fellas over at No Maas are all for it. What do you think? I don’t imagine that it’ll happen but it’d sure keep us busy with banter, man.
