So was activated from the 60-day DL today, and Girardi said the team will “work him back slow.” I think, and this is just me speculating, that this is a move to keep D-Rob in the eighth-inning role for the time being.
Sergio Mitre was put on the 60-day DL with a shoulder problem. Meat Tray was sent for an MRI on the shoulder today.
Steve Garrison was optioned to Double-A Trenton today. No word on what happened to Mr. Hat.
Girardi said today that Cy Colon will start the first game of tomorrow’s doubleheader and SuperNova will start the nightcap. That is assuming tonight’s game, which is currently in a rain delay, goes down.
