Enjoy the game.

UPDATE:

Alex Rodriguez may not participate in the All-Star Game in order to rest his ailing right knee.

A-Rod was voted in as the starter at third base, but he has been hampered with a sore right knee for a couple of weeks now. While his knee is improving, he could use the All-Star break to rest with the second half in mind. Adrian Beltre would likely make the start at third base if he skips the game.

 

Yankees prospect catcher Jesus Montero was placed on the 7-day disabled list with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre due to a back injury.

Montero was placed on the DL retroactive to July 4, so he could be back early next week. The 21-year-old is batting .289/.346/.418 with seven homers, 33 RBI and a .763 OPS over 298 plate appearances this season. Assuming the injury is minor, we should probably get used to hearing his name bandied about in trade rumors (both real and fictional) over the next few weeks.

 

Mariano Rivera (triceps) has bowed out of the All-Star Game.

Rivera has been battling soreness in his right triceps muscle for about a week and doesn’t want to risk further injury in what is essentially an exhibition game. He should be available to the Yankees on Thursday night and all this weekend weekend. The right-hander has a 1.91 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 21 saves in 33 innings.

Injury Updates

INJURY UPDATES

Here are some injury updates from word that we’ve received this morning:

  • Pedro Feliciano has been shut down from doing bullpen work. The Yankees say that there is a big chance that he will not pitch this year and are looking into surgery as an option
  • The abdominal discomfort that Eric Chavez experienced was nothing more than a kidney stone. Yankees doctors said that it had passed and Chavez should be fine.
  • Rafael Soriano will throw live batting practice today to work on his elbow. Soriano injured his elbow in April and was put on the 60 day DL after Jeter was placed on the 15 day DL last month.
  • Mariano Rivera says he feels much better today and is hoping that he can pitch for the Yankees. Rivera was shut down for three days are complaining of soreness in the elbow.
  • It was reported that Damaso Marte had been doing bullpen sessions with the Yankees and is feeling good. He is currently aiming for a comeback in late August if there are no more setbacks.

Morning Bits 7/7/11

Good Morning all.  The Yankees lost their first series in some time yesterday.  Hopefully a better series against the Rays.

and here are your links.

* Last night Mariano sat out again while the bullpen blew up.

* Hughes was better than his previous starts this year but he still has some work to do.

* Of course since I’m going to the Scranton W-B Yankee game Saturday they just put Montero on the DL.  Just my luck!!!

Game Review from MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch:

CLEVELAND — The handful of times that Phil Hughes glanced up to check out his own radar gun readings on Wednesday, he felt a little bit more like himself, which the Yankees certainly would take as a positive.

Hughes took his five innings of two-run ball as a promising step in the right direction, but he couldn’t keep pace with Justin Masterson, who fired eight stifling frames as the Indians defeated the Yankees, 5-3, at Progressive Field.

“I would have liked to have been a little sharper early and get in somewhat of a groove, but I gave up a couple runs and then had to fight to keep it where it was,” Hughes said. “And Masterson was really good, so that’s the way it goes.”
