This was actually the most surprising news of the day for the Yankees: David Robertson will go on the DL with a Grade-1 groin strain.
Joe Girardi said Robertson pulled his groin during yesterday’s 6-4 win over the Blue Jays, but he didn’t say anything until he came into work on Monday morning. Shawn Kelley will be the closer in Robertson’s absence and you could now see a bigger role for other bullpen guys such as Vidal Nuno, Dellin Betances and Adam Warren. Girardi said the Yankees have not made a roster move as of yet for Robertson.
– The Yankees are reportedly considering bringing either Shane Greene or Cesar Cabral to replace Robertson on the roster. We’ll see who the Yankees choose and how this plays out in the coming hours.
– Mark Teixeira‘s MRI came back with a Grade 1 strain of his calf. He pulled his hamstring over the weekend during the series in Toronto.
