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.
