David Robertson Injury Update: Yankees Reliever Very Efficient In Triple-A Appearance

New York Yankees relief pitcher David Robertson pitched in the seventh inning of Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's game against the Louisville Bats on Sunday. Robertson threw 11 pitches (eight strikes) in the inning of relief, striking out one batter and giving up zero hits and zero walks.

Robertson pitched in place of injured closer Mariano Rivera before going on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique injury. In his two save opportunities, Robertson has one save. Overall, Robertson is 0-1 in 15 appearances (14.1 innings) in 2012 with a 2.51 ERA and 24 strikeouts.

Since Robertson's injury, Rafael Soriano has assumed the closer role for the Yankees. He earned a save in each of his first nine opportunities before blowing a save in today's game against the New York Mets. Soriano gave up three hits and an earned run in 1/3 of an inning in the Yankees' 5-4 win.
