With less than two weeks to go before the regular season begins ithe New York Yankees have several players being slowed by injuries, particularly members of their bullpen.
Both left-handers in the bullpen are currently sidelined. Pedro Feliciano, signed as a free agent from the New York Mets in the offseason, has not pitched since March 9 due to soreness in his left triceps. Boone Logan is sidelined with back spasms.
Joba Chamberlain is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday to see when he might be able to return from a strained oblique muscle that has sidelined him for a week.
Also, outfielder Brett Gardner left Friday’s game with a bruised shin.
“When I tried to score from second, they could tell I was favoring it,” Gardner said. “They just didn’t want me to favor that and pull something else.”
In one bit of good news, Sergio Mitre returned from an oblique injury to pitch three innings in a 6-5 loss to Toronto.
