This week on I’d Roster that we have a designated hitter, a corner outfielder, a first basemen, and a right handed pitcher. Lots to get to this week, so let us begin.
Travis Hafner (35, left handed hitting designated hitter, New York Yankees) was signed to a one-year $2 million dollar deal this winter. With a pile of injuries in New York,...
York Yankees got back a powerful hitter when outfielder Curtis Granderson
returned to their lineup on May 14. The Yankees had awaited Granderson’s season
debut since early in Spring Training. However, there is now concern over the possibility
of losing another big left-handed bat for some time.
Fordin reports that Yankees’ designated...
This is scary. Today, the Yankees activated Curtis Granderson from the DL, after announcing that Travis Hafner will miss a few days, because his shoulder is barking, and he's having an MRI.Listen: When Travis Hafner goes or an MRI, you better get his mailing address, because the money question is whether it's weeks or months. That shoulder is going to look like a Doppler...

Travis Hafner has had some soreness in his right shoulder lately and the Yankees DH is going to attempt to get some answers. Hafner will sit out a few games and undergo an MRI.
Hafner has had a long list of injuries during his career so the Yankees will not push the 35-year-old too hard this early in the season.

Travis Hafner is hitting like it’s 2005. The 35-year-old has raced to a .318/.438/.667 line, replete with six home runs, three doubles and a triple in April. He has helped breathe life into a lineup missing its usual stars. With Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, and Alex Rodriguez all shelved, the Yankees have still managed 4.6 runs per game, good for ninth in the...
Travis Hafner brought in four runs on a home run and a triple in today’s win.
Toronto Blue Jays 4 — New York Yankees 5
In a gritty start, CC Sabathia is assisted by Travis Hafner in today’s 5-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
In his sixth start of the season, Sabathia trailed by one going into the fourth inning. A leadoff home run by Jose Bautista increased the deficit...
In the ninth inning of yesterday's bullpen-fueled heart attack, new Yankee Travis Hafner spat upon a grand tradition that extends to the final whiffs of the Giambino Curse: Facing an overwhelming defensive shift - six fielders jammed onto the right side - instead of taking his normal cuts, the honorable strikeout for a Yankee slugger, Hafner laid down a bunt.Naturally, he was...
New York Yankees designated hitter Travis Hafner hit a double by accident when he tried to check his swing in his fourth inning at-bat during Tuesday night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good.

I personally wish Travis Hafner the best. I was obviously disappointed in how his Tribe career worked out, but I think he was too. I think he always wanted to do well for himself and for the team. With that, I wish him nothing but the best even as he now plays for the New York Yankees.
However “the best” are not words I’d use to describe John Sterling’s shticky homerun calls...
