David Robertson suffers midfoot sprain

Yankees setup man David Robertson will be on the shelf for at least a couple days after he suffered a right midfoot sprain while moving boxes, according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.

X-rays came back negative, but the team has sent MRI results to the team doctor in New York for further information, Hoch reported.

It’s still too early to tell how much time D-Rob is going to miss, but manager Joe Girardi told Jack Curry of the YES Network said that he could miss up to two weeks before Opening Day is in jeopardy. If he misses more time than he might start the season on the DL.

Losing one of their top relievers obviously wouldn’t be good for the Yankees, but this doesn’t seem like a serious injury and the bullpen is deep enough that they could go without him for a short period of time.

    Robertson was sent for more tests after MRI gave Yanks "cause for concern" said Girardi. Hope to know more tomorrow.

    The worry is if it's one of those lisfranc sprains—the type that ruined Wang. Let's hope not.

    He should chew more carefully
