Niese agreed with the move because he’s been having trouble for about six weeks, but said this break is nothing like his DL stint last year.
Brian Cashman insists he’s not angry with Kevin Long. But the Yankees GM didn’t too happy with him either when discussing Mark Teixeira’s wrist woes.
It is the same quad that caused him to miss a good deal of time last season, though the player commented that he believes this one is much less severe. He’d better hope so.
Ruben Tejada to the minor leagues? Not so fast. He’s headed to the disabled list with a right quadriceps strain, the Mets announced Thursday.
Hughes will join Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson on New York’s disabled list for the start of the season.
First Johan Santana, now Shaun Marcum? It seems the Mets may be two starters down when the season kicks off less than a week from now.
It doesn’t get much worse than this for a Major League Baseball star. Insult, then injury.
Gardner had an MRI that showed a strained muscle just above his elbow. He also has a bruise.
If we learned anything from last year, David Wright will play through pain — which is why someone needs to be the adult in the room.
The Yankees have put third baseman Alex Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list while he recovers from surgery on his right knee. Greg Golson was promoted from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Surgery to repair a torn meniscus in Alex Rodriguez’s right knee “went as expected” on Monday, according to the Yankees. He’s expected to miss four to six weeks.
Jose Reyes may need up to three weeks of rest for his ailing hamstring. In that case, he would return right around the July 31 trading deadline, if not afterward. But for those fans that think Reyes has played his last game in blue and orange, think again.
Ailing Mets star Jose Reyes didn’t do any running Tuesday before the Mets’ 6-0 win over the Dodgers, and manager Terry Collins said the club was hesitant about putting Reyes on the DL with Philadelphia coming to New York for a three-game series after the All-Star break.
Derek Jeter and his teammates had hoped he would get the milestone hit – No. 3,000 — at Yankee Stadium this week. That’s not happening now that he’s on the disabled list. But there’s still a chance Jeter could get No. 3,000 at home — or at least in New York.
Calf strains can be nagging injuries that create ongoing vulnerability, but with proper precaution and the mildest grade of strain, hopefully Derek Jeter will be back in the lineup when his stint on the DL is up.
