Brett Gardner Dealing with Bruised Wrist

The Yankees have revealed that outfielder Brett Gardner has been dealing with a bone bruise in his left wrist. The injury occurred during the Wild Card game against the Astros while running into a wall when attempting to make a catch.

Brian Cashman, the Yankees General Manager talked about Gardner today with reporters.“I know he feels good, we are taking it slow,’’ Cashman said. “Spring training is long enough, we don’t have to be rushing. The CT scan showed a bone bruise. It’s going in the right direction. At this point, taking the safe route.’’

Gardner took about 50 swings in the indoor batting cage today, however he is not scheduled to take batting practice tomorrow.

Yankees place David Robertson on 15-day DL

The Yankees have placed their closer, David Robertson, on the 15-day DL with a Grade 1 strain of his left groin strain.

Robertson first felt the injury against the Blue Jays on Sunday, in which he recorded his second save of the season. After about five or six pitches, he felt irritation in his left groin. Initially, he thought it would go away overnight, but notified the team Monday morning and was quickly sent for a MRI.

Shawn Kelley will likely close out ballgames for now on until Robertson makes recovers.

Mark Teixeira placed on DL, Romine recalled

The Yankees have placed first basemen Mark Teixeira on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday due to a right hamstring strain. Teixeira suffered the injury Friday night after lunging for a foul ball.

Austin Romine has been recalled from Triple-A to give the Yankees a little more depth. With Teixeira out, Kelly Johnson will be the first basemen and backup catcher Francisco Cervelli may see time over there as well.

The Yankees hope that Mark is only out the minimum 15 days.
