School’s out, Yanks roll, injury bug spreads

Finally, my sophomore year at Quinnipiac came to an end today. When I learned Mark Teixeira became the only Yankee to hit three homers against the Red Sox other than Lou Gehrig, I knew it was time to celebrate. The Yankees won big again, 14-3, but another player got bit by the injury bug: Alfredo Aceves.

Ace will only be out 2-3 days according to Marc Carig, but it’s the principle of the thing. The Yankees have had a ton of injuries in the last few days after nearly making it through April unscathed.

Thankfully, the more important player of yesterday’s two injuries played today. As the designated hitter, Robinson Cano went 1-for-5 and scored twice after getting hit on the left knee yesterday.

Nick Johnson, on the other hand, is out several weeks and was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Utility player Kevin Russo took his spot on the roster.

Expect posts on Derek Jeter, Phil Hughes and the rest of the rotation tomorrow leading up to Sunday Night Baseball. lenNY’s Yankees is back to full strength for the summer!
