NFT: Yankee Injury Updates (Jacoby with yet another injury)

Beer Man : 4/16/2018 4:11 pm
- Jacoby Ellsbury (per C. Harvey): Aaron Boone says Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is dealing with a new injury issue. The team thinks the oblique injury "is past," but in addition to the hip problem, Ellsbury has developed a plantar fascia problem.

- Greg Bird (per C. Harvey): Aaron Boone says injured Yankees 1B Greg Bird (foot/ankle) is doing well with his rehab. The Yankees still don’t know exactly when Bird will be back, but they are optimistic his return will be “on the shorter side” of his 6-8-week scheduled recovery.

- Brandon Drury (per D. Hamilton): The migraine headaches and blurry vision issues that sent third baseman Brandon Drury to the 10-day disabled list on April 7 are gone … at least for the time being

- Clint Frazier (per D. Hamilton): He’s still making progress in Tampa recovering from a February concussion, but not yet medically cleared to play in games. “Frazier is close to passing everything he needs to where he can get back to baseball and start to hopefully get into a game real soon,” manager Aaron Boone said on Sunday. “But he’s got to pass all the protocols for that to happen.”

Does anyone else think it's incredible the difference in how this is handled vs. the NFL? I keep thinking about how in the NFL a guy gets a concussion and the discussion is "will be cleared for the game next week". Meanwhile, in a sport with significantly less contact, Frazier is out for two months.

To be clear, this isn't a shot at Frazier or the process, but perhaps more an indictment of how the NFL handles this.

You ain't lying. Both cannot be "less-wrong" in their approach.

Ellsbury is either milking or PED use has completely ravaged his body. No professional level athlete has this many problems.

I was one of the few people on this board who thought Ellsbury could contribute this year, despite being massively overpaid. I was wrong. Just put him on the 60 and be done with it.
one of the worst contracts in MLB history

What a waste.
We don't give Cano the 10 years but then turn around

and give Ellsbury this mammoth of a mistake. This never seemed like a Cashman move.
