David Robertson Injury Update: Foot Injury Sidelines Reliever

David Robertson, who made the American League All-Star Team in 2011 setting up for New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera, reportedly suffered a foot injury Wednesday in a fall down a flight of stairs.

Per the New York Times, the Yankees are calling the injury a “midfoot sprain” and have placed Robertson’s foot in a protective boot.

Robertson, who turns 27 next month, was 4-0 with a 1.08 ERA in 70 games covering 66.2 innings last season. He had one save.

The Yankees — and their fans — will hold their breath and hope that an MRI does not show the dreaded Lisfranc sprain, which cost Chien-Ming Wang a full year a few seasons back and ultimately derailed what had been a promising start to his career. Wang has never made it all the way back, suffering a series of other injuries along the way.
