Dave Robertson gets righties out and he gets lefties out. Power hitters don't bother him and neither do slap hitters. He can come in to start an inning and plow 1-2-3 through the heart of another team's order or he can enter mid-inning with the bases loaded and nobody out and not even break a sweat as he works out of the jam without allowing a run. Hitters are pretty much no match for The Fireman.
Cardboard boxes, on the other hand, are a different story. Especially those sonofabitch empty ones.
Thanks to them, D-Rob could be on the shelf for some time after his MRI turned up enough to be a "cause for concern" according to Joe Girardi. Robertson said he doesn't expect to miss a lot of time, but the Yankees have scheduled a CT scan and a weight-bearing X-ray as a follow up, and there's already talk of him not being available for Opening Day.
Sounds like Spring Training just became more important for every reliever in camp.
