Andrew Brackman Suffers Groin Injury

Andrew Brackman, New York YankeesIn the battle for a rotation spot Andrew Brackman has jumped out ahead as the leading rookie candidate to win the job, but he suffered a slight setback today as he has come down with a groin injury that will keep him out until at least Tuesday, according to Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger.

It doesn’t sound serious, but with pitchers groin injuries can become lingering problems. A pitchers legs are extremely important to him and if he’s not 100 percent the results just won’t be there.

“It’s not going to hurt me,” said Brackman, who said the Yankees are simply taking the proper precautions. “But it couldn’t be a worse time.”

Right now this isn’t a big problem. If it persists it could cost him a rotation spot, at least at first. Of course we’ll have any updates as they happen.

    Nooooo!! I hope it doesn’t turn into something a major injury. I am hoping that Brackman wins one of the rotation spots along with Nova.

  2. This is not nearly a big deal. It could force him to start the season in the minors, but he was probably going to do that anyway. I would be shocked if this became a longterm problem.

    Is this an evil omen or what? Maybe we’re cursed this year …
