Girardi: D-Rob’s foot sprain is “cause for concern”

Yesterday it didn’t seem like such a big deal because x-rays came back negative, but Yankees manager Joe Girardi seemed legitimately cocerned about David Robertson‘s midfoot sprain last night after they got his MRI results back.

Girardi said there was “cause for concern” regarding the Yankees fireman and Robertson was sent back for another round of tests, a CAT scan and a weight-bearing MRI, according to Dan Barbarisi and Erik Boland.

Like friend of the blog Mike Sommer pointed out last night, the real concern here is that he has developed a lisfranc sprain in his foot, the same type of injury started off a series of events that eventually ruined former Yankee Chien-Ming Wang‘s career. Now, the fracture itself wasn’t what did Wang in, but it let to him overcompensating for the foot and eventually changing his mechanics which led to other more serious injuries. That’ wouldn’t necessary happen in this case with Robertson, but the point is that this could be something more serious.

There is no news today, but I will pass something along as soon as it happens. I think there is a very real chance that D-Rob could be on the DL to start the season.

    It's good news: It is reported that it's just a bone bruise. Walking boot until Monday, then he works his way back. Yanks & D-Rob dodge a bullet.
