Kuroda said though an interpreter that he still felt “a little bit of tightness” in his ankle area, but nothing that would prevent him from pitching.
Pettitte, who took a one-hopper off his left hand on Sunday, kept the hand wrapped during the team’s flight to Atlanta and overnight, keeping any swelling to a minimum.
“If it was a line drive, it probably would have been a lot worse,” Pettitte said. “I wasn’t too concerned about it last night; I knew it wasn’t broke, so I knew it was just a bruise and that I would be able to make my next start.”
You mean broken, right Andy?
In other injury news, David Robertson could rejoin the Yankees’ bullpen this weekend. The pen’s been solid without their top two relievers. Since Robertson went out on May 11 the bullpen’s thrown 59 innings and allowed 56 hits, 23 R, 20 ER, 5 HR, 21 BB and 55 K for an RA of 3.51, ERA of 3.05 and FIP of 3.31, but it’ll be nice to get Robertson back.
