If you watched yesterday’s game and saw Chan Ho Park warming up in the bullpen might have been surprised when they didn’t see him in the game. No he didn’t have another bout of diarrhea. This time, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com, he aggravated his right hamstring while throwing in the pen.
There will be tests conducted today to get an idea of how long Park will be out for, but we aren’t likely to get that news for a couple more hours. If he lands on the DL expect the Yankees to recall left handed pitcher Boone Logan from the minor leauges. Although, with David Robertson‘s early struggles it is possible they make the move for Mark Melancon especially with Damaso Marte pitching so well.
Lefty Royce Ring could be an option as well, but he is held back by the fact that he doesn’t have a spot on the 40-man roster. To make matters worse for Ring, Jonathan Albaladejo, one of the leading candidates to be DFA’d once the Yankees need room on their 40-man roster, has been pitching well. So the Yankees are less likely to expose him to waivers at this point.
Give us your thoughts on Park’s injury and how the bullpen could be realigned if he goes down and we’ll get you an update on Park as soon as it happens.
