Found March 08, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
PLAYERS: Clay Rapada
TEAMS: New York Yankees
The New York Yankees can't catch break.  While Clay Rapada's injury is not considered serious, he will have to miss time.  It's just another injury to add to the mounting list.  Rapada will miss at least  week with bursitis in his shoulder. According to Sweeny Murti of WFAN in New York, Rapada will be out and Boone Logan hasn't pitched in a week.  It's bad news all around for the Yankees' bullpen. Clay Rapada shut down at least a week bursitis in shoulder. Logan has not pitched in a game yet. #UnluckyLefties — Sweeny Murti (@YankeesWFAN) March 7, 2013 Rapada is a six-year veteran.  He has played for five different teams in his career. The 32-year old has a career 4.18 ERA.  While he's not a dominant reliever, he's an additional arm for the Yankees to rely on.  Now they'll have to wait and see how his shoulder responds to treatment.
