Chavez Has Another Setback; Mariano Experiences Shoulder Soreness

CHAVEZ HAS ANOTHER SETBACK; MARIANO EXPERIENCES SHOULDER SORNESS

Well, it’s happened. Eric Chavez had another setback in his quest to return to the Yankees. Chavez complained of abdominal discomfort and is currently flying to New York to get some testing done. Chavez was regularly put on the 15 day DL for a broken pinky toe which he experienced in May. In other news, Mariano Rivera is experiencing shoulder soreness in his left shoulder, and is currently day to day with the Yankees. Rivera said that he felt better today, but the Yankees will probably think it’s best to rest Rivera for another day. To take over the closing role if the Yankees need it will be David Robertson, who has a 1.05 ERA since the beginning of the year.

Game Review from MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch:

CLEVELAND — The Yankees needed A.J. Burnett to get through seven innings on this day more than most, but that was where a pair of former teammates came back to hurt the right-hander on Monday.

Austin Kearns’ three-run homer followed Shelley Duncan’s RBI single as Burnett coughed up a two-run advantage, taking the loss as the Indians posted a 6-3 victory on Independence Day at Progressive Field.
