Robertson sprains ankle but Opening Day not in jeopardy

Robertson sprains ankle but Opening Day not in jeopardy

Delia E.

David Robertson sprained his ankle yesterday after falling down a flight of steps in his Spring residence. Robertson had an X-Ray done early this morning and was scheduled to have an MRI. The Yankees will get the results for the MRI later today. Joe Girardi seemed a bit concerned about one of the big guys in the bullpen.

“I’m concerned. By the way he was walking today, it hurt him to walk.” Girardi told reporters. Robertson was fit into a walking boot but Girardi doesn’t think that Robertson would miss opening day unless he missed 2 straight weeks in camp.

Girardi explained that Robertson missed a step while carrying empty boxes down the stairs. It didn’t hurt at first but after an hour Robertson noticed throbbing pain & called athletic trainer Steve Donahue.

“They were empty boxes; they weren’t even heavy boxes.” Girardi said. “I told him to kick them down the stairs next time.”
