More Yankees Injuries Updates

David Robertson was scratched from his appearance in last nights game against the Atlanta Braves because he could not get loose in the bullpen. Robertson said his shoulder was not sore and he is definitely not injured he just felt like he slept on it wrong the night before. He was removed for precautionary reasons but fully expects to pitch today against Team Dominican Republic.

Curtis Granderson had another X-ray yesterday and the doctors were happy with how his forearm was healing. Curtis has been cleared to start doing some core and lower body exercises to keep his body in shape. Curtis expects to need longer than expected because he did not start in any Spring Training games really but still expects it to be in the ten week time frame.

Mariano Rivera could possibly get into today's game against Team DR but Joe Girardi says it is more then likely going to happen on Saturday. The Yankees play the Braves at home on Saturday at 1:05 pm ET on YES Network.

Slade Heathcott has been out of action since spraining his thumb in an outfield collision with Ronnier Mustelier. He began taking batting practice for the first time since the injury yesterday and is expected to play in the game Saturday against the Braves.

Adonis Garcia broke his hamate bone in his left wrist during batting practice on Sunday. As much as I hate to say this because of what Mark Teixeira is currently going through but wrist injuries are usually pretty bad and lingering so I hate to hear this. Adonis is scheduled to have surgery on the wrist tomorrow and will miss six to eight weeks.
