The news just gets worse for Brian Bruney. The relief pitcher is scheduled to see Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., on Wednesday, Tyler Kepner reports.
Bruney may have rushed himself back, and Joe Girardi is none too pleased.
“I just think he wasn’t totally forthright in how he was feeling,” Girardi said. “We’ve had many talks with him over the last couple of weeks about how you have to tell us exactly what’s going on. It could be that by rushing himself back, he’s never given himself the amount of time he’s needed.”
The Yankees called up David Robertson after this afternoon’s game and he will be up with the team in time for tonight’s game.
Kepner mentions Huston Street as a potential trade target. Street is 7-for-7 in save opportunities for the last-place Colorado Rockies, allowing seven earned runs in 18 1/3 innings.
I’m not sure it’s time to start looking outside of the organization for help. However, that day will probably end up coming sooner or later.
