Rumor: Nady won’t need surgery

Jon Heyman is reporting on WFAN that Xavier Nady has a ligament strain in his right elbow that can be rehabbed, thus allowing him to avoid surgery. We’ll find out more when the Yankees clubhouse opens in about 15 minutes but this is obviously good news for the team.

Joe Girardi was saying yesterday that Nady can still be useful to the Yankees even if he is only a DH for the rest of the season – no word on if that’s the case though.

Pettitte is getting alot of balls hitting in the air, kind of tempting fate with this park.

I am kind of wishing we had snagged a DH like Dunn, who could play OF. We could just move Posada to DH 5 days a week and Swisher the other 2. My problem with Matsui is he is not a DH who can give OFs days off. Matsui is basically a very expensive pinch hitter at best.

Nady to the 60Day DL opens a spot for someone!

Nady still might not ever play for us again, there is no guarantee he rehabs in time to play.

I am not sure we cut Sanchez, until he pitches, we don’t know what we have. Hacker couldn’t hack a lock with a key.

There are several players currently on the 40-man roster this team could easily cut like Hacker, Ransom, Steven Jackson or even Humberto Sanchez if he can’t get his career going again. None of those guys will be missed.

Plus Alba and possibly Veras. What about Matsui?

REPEAT FROM PRIOR THREAD
BP,
Bringing back Shelley raises the problem of a 40Man roster move. I read somewhere today that Humberto Sanchez is nearing the end of another rehab!

Lets keep him away from this team. 40 man roster is not an issue, Alba is not cutting it.

Wang IS going to Tampa as I projected previously
Not sure what it means that Matsui is limited until June, then what? Japan?

This would be great. Matsui is looking pretty bad and we need the depth for when swish slows down. What ever happened to the Yankee FANmail??????

One of the biggest problems here is Cashman has 2 less chips to deal at the deadline…

Matsui might not even make it till then, and nobody is going to want Nady…
