The injury cloud that has hovered over the Yankees since Spring Training is still there and starting to rain on the position players now. Alex Rodriguez is officially heading to the DL again, for what will surely be an extended period of time, and the Yankees are left with decisions to make about what to do to replace him in the immediate short term and long term for the remainder of the regular season. Those decisions have an added level of urgency and intrigue connected to them with this injury butting up against the upcoming trade deadline. Cash already made a splashy swerve move this week, but there certainly no talks being had about corner infielders. As those talks start to heat up today, the Yankees will first look to their internal cache of fill-in options.
