Yankees Injury Bug

After losing stars Joba Chamberlain, Brett Gardner, and Michael Pineda, the Yankees also lost David Robertson, Ivan Nova, Raul Ibanez, and of course Mariano Rivera. For more info on this, go to and it will tell you all about the players’ injuries.

Ivan Nova and Raul Ibanez should be back next week. The Yankees ace in Nova, will be needed soon, or, the Yankees will have more pitching woes then they have now. But they have Eric Chavez,  Andrew Jones, and Chris Stewart as just a few as their good replacements.

I think that with the bullpen issue of the Yankees losing Mo and Da-Rob, they will be able to handle it with Rafael Soriano and Boone Logan, as Rafael the closer, and Boone the late-inning lefty coming in to relieve the pitcher.

I think the Yankees could handle the injuries for another while of time.

    My goodness! It appears that having so many injuries must really hurt the team! How does the Yankees accomodate the loss?

    • Well they are doing well just putting up their 2nd line replacements.

    • They have been using Rafael Soriano to replace the relievers that are hurt and are back to usual status with the rest
