Injury Update: Hope You All Love Cairo and Farnsworth!
Saturday, July 22, 2006
Another day, another game, and the ax continues to grind deeper into the Yankees’ collective soul. Dotel, a man whose arm could be just what the Yanks’ bullpen needs to propel the team into the post-season, and Cano (left, and I apologize for reminding you what a good offensive 2nd baseman looks like), whose bat has been dearly missed in the lineup, are both going to be hanging out on the disabled list for a bit longer than anyone would like.

Tommy-John recoveree Dotel—who we were originally told would “hopefully” be able to join the Yankees in late June—pitched 1 inning for the Trenton Thunder last week before complaining of soreness and tenderness in his healing arm. Had Tuesday’s start gone well for him, Dotel would have joined the Yanks in Toronto this weekend. Torre, ever the cool customer, said it just wasn’t “meant to be”, but as for the Yankees Chick, who is getting fed up with all of these setbacks and even more fed up with every run that Farnsworth or Proctor gives up, she’s ready to give him a hypodermic full of cortisone and shove him toward the mound.

The other wounded Yank who was supposed to rejoin the lineup this week, Cano, also had a rough week. His strained hamstring didn’t sound like too devastating an injury when it occurred almost a month ago—the Yanks weren’t even sure if he needed to go to the DL at all at first—but he has not healed well at all. He’s missed 20 games now, and the latest optimistic date for his return is August 1st. In his absence, Cairo has taken over the 2nd base post, and his work has been far inferior to our boy Cano’s. Cairo (right, playing defense, the only aspect of his game we're glad to have) is hitting a dismal .247, and his OBP is a very weak .283; he’s also only knocked in 19 runs. Compare that to the .325 Robby was hitting before his injury and his 27 RBIs—in roughly the same number of at-bats—and you can see why his presence is dearly missed.

Now before you get too sad about the state of the Yankees’ injured crew, there is some encouraging news on the conditions of Matsui and Sheffield. Both of their wrist surgeries went well, and Matsui’s doctor has reported that his bones fused “perfectly”. As soon as a bit of muscular pain (which is normal, according to the docs) subsides he’ll be ready to start swinging a bat again, and he is aiming for a mid-August return. As for Shef, his cast is coming off this week, putting him one step closer to a pinstriped return.

As of today, the Yanks are still a game and a half behind the Red Sox. With just 66 games left on the season, the swift return of Cano, Shef, Matsui and Dotel could literally mean the difference between a trip to the post-season or an October of golf.
