Yankees News: Andrew Bailey To Return From Shoulder Injury


New Jersey native and New York Yankees reliever Andrew Bailey is set to resume his throwing program in a few days.

According to Brenday Kuty of NJ.com, Andrew Bailey will return back to Tampa, Florida to try and show the Yankees organization that the shoulder strain suffered in his right arm two weeks ago was a minor scare rather than another career threatening injury.

As I reported earlier, Andrew Bailey originally complained about the pain in his right shoulder after making back-to-back relief appearances at Single-A Tampa for the first time this season.

Following an MRI, it was revealed that it was just a shoulder strain, but who can forget that Bailey had surgery to repair a tear in his shoulder labrum and capsule while with Boston a few years back on the same throwing shoulder.

The right-hander showed enough promise in Spring Training to make the Yankees believe that he can help the major league club at some point this season. However, the recent shoulder strain might suggest otherwise.

“He’s trying to do almost the impossible” in returning from his serious injuries, Cashman said.

He has a 5.40 ERA in five innings with Tampa.

It look’s as if we’ve not seen the last of Andrew Bailey.
