“I don’t think it’s anything serious. We’re being really cautious right now, because we can be.”

This was the explanation New York Yankees skipper Joe Girardi gave MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch, about why Kevin Youkilis was scratched from the last two Spring Training games.
Youkilis said he had “a little cramp” but that it was no big deal and that the Yankees were taking “precautionary” measures with him.
Well, can you blame them?
No, you can’t because Youkilis has had extensive injuries over the past three seasons.
Actually the list is so long that it is almost inevitable Youkilis will wind up on the DL at some point this year, and that is putting it politely.
Do I think Youkilis’ current “cramp” is a bigger concern?
No I do not, but keeping 35-year-old Youkilis healthy for an entire season, most certainly should be. (more…)
