Some Notes: Robertson, Nelson, Teixeira, Granderson,

Here are some notes from today:

-- David RobertsonDavid Robertson looked as if he turned on his ankle during the last pitch of his outing and immediately went to the clubhouse. According to Girardi, Robertson is fine after icing his ankle and he should be ready to go on Friday.

-- Chris NelsonAfter the game, the Yankees announced that they traded either cash or a player to be named later to the Colorado Rockies for INF Chris Nelson. Nelson is batting .242 (16-for-66) with 0 HR and 4 RBI's with his time in Colorado. The Yankees have not made a 25-man roster move but they did move Francisco Cervelli to the 60-Day-DL.

-- Mark TeixeiraMark Teixeira is one step closer to returning to the Yankees lineup. Texieria hit balls off a tee and hit baseballs that were thrown by the coaches towards him. He's not close to getting into a rehab game and he'll continue to build strength in his wrist.

-- Curtis GrandersonCurtis Granderson is the closest to returning to the Yankees lineup. Granderson had two AB in an extended Spring Training game today (there was rain in the forecast that suspended the game) and said he felt great. He feels he needs at least 50 AB before he could return to the Yankees which puts him to return in 2 weeks.

  1. Trading for Nelson makes some sense. I like Joseph but the yanks really need a RH bat and Nelson had success last year hitting .301 with 9 HRs and an .801 OPS.

    Ronny Mustelier is finally back in AAA. he's in the lineup tonight at 3B hitting 5th. Despite Francisco's HR last night, I'd rather have Musty on the team as his versatility and offense are assets.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
