Johnson appears headed to the DL

Nick Johnson left tonight’s game with soreness in his right wrist and all indications are that he’ll be placed on the 15-day disabled list tomorrow. 

Johnson is leaving Boston and will be seeing team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad and hand specialist Dr. Melvin Rosenwasser in New York. Joe Girardi said that nothing is 100 percent just yet, but he expects there to be a DL move made. It’s the same wrist that Johnson had surgery on in 2008. 
(If you want to look up Johnson’s complete and lengthy injury history, or any other player, check out BaseballInjuryTool.com. Neat site.)
The Yankees are in desperate need of an infielder – at one point tonight, Girardi actually turned to Javier Vazquez and asked him, “You used to play infield, right?” 
As for Robinson Cano, the news seems better. His left knee will be sore after it was hit by that 92 mph Josh Beckett fastball, but for the moment he’s being listed as day-to-day. 
“It’s frustrating,” Cano said. “You don’t want to see your teammates get hurt. It’s the game of baseball. We hope nobody else gets hurt and we can play with our whole lineup from now on.”

The Yanks should of never signed Johnson or Granderson. Thanks to our pitching we have got off to a great start. Image how much better we would be with Damon and Austin Jackson. Cashman’s off season moves proving to be worthless.

Did Beckett go after us on purpose. I sure hope not. But the smirk on is face kind of gave it away. He knew he was going to lose anyway. I am glad I am a Yankee fan. We have class. Thanks Yanks!
