Keep It On The DL for 5/21/06 (one day late…again)

Always late on Sundays. Why? Well, I’m always tired on Sundays. When I get tired, I forget things. So there.

American League
Shawn Chacon (NYY – SP) 15-day DL on May 21st. Left leg hematoma.
Bubba Crosby (NYY – OF) 15-day DL on May 19th. Strained right hamstring suffered when he tried to run out a hit during Thursday’s game with Texas. Crosby becomes the third outfielder the Yanks have had to put on the DL in the past two weeks. This is in addition to having two members of what would otherwise be their starting rotation on the DL. This has NOT been a good month for the Yankees. This team is hurting badly.
Mike Holtz (Bos – RP) 15-day DL retroactive to May 17th. Strained left elbow. Has only made three appearances for a combined 1.2 innings in the 2006 season. He previously had not made an appearance in the Majors since his 2002 stints with Oakland and San Diego.
Matt Miller (Cle – RP) Moved from 15-day DL to 60-day DL retroactive to April 20th. Right elbow strain; generally accepted that he will NOT be back this season.
Antonio Alfonseca (Tex – RP) 15-day DL on May 19th. Sore right (throwing) elbow.
Joe Kennedy (Oak – SP,RP) 15-day DL retroactive to May 11th. Sore left bicep.

National League
Kyle Davies (Atl – SP) Moved to 60-day DL retroactive to May 16th, 2006. Strained groin; may miss up to and possibly over a month of play.
Lance Niekro (SF – 1B) 15-day DL on May 21st. Right shoulder bursitis. Has not played since May 14th.

    I watched in horror from the third base side of the tier boxes as Bubba Crosby was lifted for Kevin Reese on Thursday.

    Shef took BP yesterday. The last mistake a team gets to make is *ever* counting out the Yankees.

    But yeah, they’re in bad f’n shape.

      Hopefully he recuperates quickly, because with Matsui gone they need him BADLY. I mean, an outfield with Damon, Reese, and Cabrera? Talk about a potential defensive nightmare. I’ll give this to Cabrera, though – he hasn’t been THAT bad in his spot thus far.

      Even when the injuries heal, though, there’s still a big problem with the starting rotation. They’re so shaky it’s frightening. Mussina’s the only starter they have with a decent ERA who has performed well consistently (never thought I’d say that).
