Found March 08, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
New York Yankees reliever David Robertson underwent multiple tests after injuring his foot in a fall down some stairs. Robertson was sent to the hospital to undergo X-rays, an MRI exam and a CT scan on his right foot. The initial diagnosis was that Robertson had suffered a mid-foot sprain Wednesday night while carrying boxes down the stairs at his home. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the initial tests on the All-Star reliever gave the team "cause for concern. We're not sure what's going on." Robertson was on crutches and in a walking boot Thursday. His test results were forward to New York to be evaluated by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad. The 26-year-old righthander emerged as New York's setup man last season, logging a 4-0 record and 1.08 ERA in 70 appearances. He also struck out 100 batters in only 66 2/3 innings.

From Anthony McCarron:David Robertson, one of the most valuable pitchers on the Yankee staff and a potential heir apparent as closer if Mariano Rivera retires after this season, could miss a chunk of spring training with what the Yanks are calling a "mid-foot sprain."

Donnie Moore: Motivational Speaker AND Suicidal Pitcher

Spring Training seems to be moving right along for the Yankees. Aside from the scare about David Robertson's injury and a small amount of worry about Michael Pineda's velocity, there hasn't been much to pay attention to down in Tampa this month. I have heard that Spring Training, as a rule, is pretty boring. That is probably one of the top reasons Joe Girardi brought...

Yankees Depth Means Robertson’s Injury Is Not a Concern

After a great start to the 2012 Spring Training season, the Yankees have run into some hard times. Starting pitchers Ivan Nova, Hiroki Kuroda and Phil Hughes were belted around and, if you believe all the scribes, Michael Pineda “needs to” improve pretty much everything, except his results. We initially heard David Robertson’s foot injury is worse than initially expected. Apparently...

Yankees Question of the Day – March 9, 2012

With the current injury sustained by David Robertson, if he is out when the season begins, who do you think should get the nod as Mariano’s set-up man until D-Rob is ready to return?
