Tuesday Morning News And Notes: 4/8/14

There was a lot of stuff happening late in the day and early in the night yesterday.  I was a little preoccupied with UConn winning the national championship (again), so I didn't get to all of it.  Here's a quick recap of the big late day stories:

- Obviously the biggest was D-Rob heading to the DL with a Grade I groin strain.  He says he doesn't expect to miss much more time than the 15 days.  Cesar Cabral has been called up to take his place on the active roster.

- The Yanks managed to get something for the recently DFA'd Eduardo Nunez when they traded him to Minnesota for 20-year-old lefty A-ball pitcher Miguel Sulbaran.  Sulbaran is small with what scouts have generally called "average" stuff, so he's no high-ceiling prospect.  But he's a lefty who can start and the Yanks have been good about working with pitchers like that recently.

- The official diagnosis came in on Mark Teixeira's hamstring after a morning MRI and it's also a Grade I.  Teix was hopeful to be out for close to the minimum 15 days as well.  We'll see.
