Found May 12, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees have yet another entry to the disabled list. On Sunday, May 12, the Yankees placed infielder Edwin Nunez on the 15-day disabled list due to tightness in his rib cage. Nunez last played on May 5, so he is eligible to return to the lineup on May 20. Indications are that Nunez should return by then. MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reported that Nunez strained his rib cage in the May 5 game against the Oakland Athletics. He has been the primary shortstop in place of Derek Jeter, who is recovering from an ankle fracture and is expected back after the All-Star break. Nunez tried to make it through the pain and avoid the disabled list, but manager Joe Girardi said that it was time to make the move. Nunez was hitting only .200 with 4 RBI. The Yankees called up Alberto Gonzalez from Triple-A to take Nunez’s spot on the roster. Gonzalez hit .217 with 1 home run in 23 at bats for the Chicago Cubs earlier in the season but .303 in Triple A. He is a utility man who can play all over the infield. He last appeared in the Majors on April 16. The good news is that the Yankees expect some of their injured players back soon. Curtis Granderson began his rehab assignment on May 9 and may play with the Yankees very soon after he reaches 50 at bats between combining Spring Training games and Minor League rehab; he is near 40 at bats as of May 12. The Yankees, with all their injuries, are in first place in the American League East at the close of play on May 12. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Dellin Betances starts over

Last night in Scranton, the eternal super-prospect Dellin Betances emerged from the bullpen and threw two scoreless innings, peaked at 97 on the radar, and walked only one batter. Only one.
