Yankees setup man David Robertson reportedly fell down a flight of stairs Wednesday night while moving some boxes at his home in Tampa. The good news for Yankee fans is that X-rays came back negative. He’s also scheduled to undergo an MRI, and those results are expected later today. The current diagnosis is a right mid foot sprain and he has been fitted with a walking boot.
Robertson has a pretty impeccable track record with the club off the field, so it’s highly doubtful this is similar to Brian Griese’s storied moment in bullshit injury lore where he “tripped over his dog.” Somewhere in California, Jeff Kent shamefully nods.
