“This is as good as it gets for us.”That’s how Joe Girardi put it. Test results on Dave Roberton’s right foot revealed a bone bruise, which is pretty much the best-case scenario. He’ll stay in a walking boot through Sunday, and probably do some throwing from a chair to keep his arm strong. Girardi believe he’ll have his setup man on Opening Day.“I would think,” Girardi said. “But I can’t tell you how it’s going to heal.”Obviously there’s still some risk here. The Yankees won’t let Robertson get back into a game until he’s pain free, and there’s a chance this thing will take longer than expected, but given the alternatives, a bone bruise came as a relief to the Yankees.
