D-Rob To The DL With A Groin Strain (UPDATED)

Guess this explains why he wasn't available for today's game.  Joe told reporters after the Yankees' win today that David Robertson will be going on the 15-day DL with Grade I groin strain.  Apparently he hurt himself some time during his appearance in yesterday's game.

No word yet on how long they expect him to be out, but it could take longer than 15 days.  Groin strains can be tricky.  D-Rob said he was confident that's all he would need.  Also no word from Joe on who will be called up to take Robertson's place on the active roster, although Joel Sherman says it will be either Cesar Cabral or Shane Greene.  For now, Shawn Kelley becomes the interim closer.  Wouldn't shock me to see Adam Warren become the new setup man based on how good he's looked so far.  More on this story as it comes out...

** UPDATE 7:29 PM- Via George King, it's going to be Cesar Cabral who gets called up to take D-Rob's 25-man roster spot.  That would put 3 lefties in the 'pen. **
