  • Robertson Foot injury still a mystery as to severity

    From ESPN.Com
    TAMPA, Fla. -- New York Yankees reliever David Robertson said he "felt better" Friday, but still does not know the severity of an injury to his right foot, which he suffered in a freak accident at his home Wednesday night.

    "No new news today, just waiting to hear back," said Robertson, who is still on crutches and wearing a walking boot. "It feels better today, that's all I can tell you."

    The right-hander said he still could not put weight on the foot, which he injured when he missed a step in his home while carrying some empty boxes.

    "I didn't feel like I broke anything when I fell," he said. "It was just really sore and I was having trouble standing on it."

    I certainly hope he is ready to go when the season starts...I think the pen will be crucial to stand behind our rotation.

      DUNEDIN, Fla. -- The New York Yankees dodged a bullet Friday when it was determined that reliever David Robertson suffered nothing more than a bone bruise on his right foot when he stumbled on a staircase in a household mishap Wednesday night.

      The club had feared the worst -- that Robertson had a hidden fracture or, at worst, a Lisfranc injury -- after an MRI administered Thursday morning revealed "some cause for concern," in Yankees manager Joe Girardi's words. Robertson was then sent back for further tests, including a CAT-scan.

      But in the ninth inning of the Yankees 3-0 win over an Atlanta Braves B-squad Friday afternoon at George M. Steinbrenner Stadium, it was announced -- first by Jack Curry of the YES Network and later by Girardi -- that Robertson's injury did not appear to be serious at all.

        This is not a good thing. Robertson is more important than most think. Unless Mo is Mo we got real problems now.
